The American College of Orgonomy course in sociopolitical orgonomy presents a functional perspective on the development of politics, with a special focus on the history of the development of the American political system. The course uses Dr. Charles Konia’s recent book, Neither Left nor Right: Preventing America’s Decline into Socialism, as a basic text, and draws from other literary sources on sociopolitics and social orgonomy as well. The destructive effects of mechano-mystical thinking and the influence of the emotional plague on the development and functioning of our political system is explored. The question of how to resolve the ideological conflict between the political Left and Right and reverse our current social decline is discussed.

Coordinated by Dr. Edward Chastka and taught by members and clinical associates of the American College of Orgonomy, the current course consists of six weekend sessions each consisting of two, one-hour lectures from 11 AM to 1 PM on the third Saturday of each month as listed below. The fee for the course is $500. The application process for the current course is now closed. To request information about future courses, email or call (732) 821-1144.
