Orgone Energy Bulletin

Bound Photocopy (all five volumes): $ 110.00
Also available individually. See above the Table of Contents for each individual issue (listed below).

The Orgone Energy Bulletin was published from 1949 to 1953, with its five volumes comprising over 900 pages. The inaugural issue began with a brief introduction to the Orgone Energy Bulletin which reads as follows:

"The Bulletin is issued by the teaching and research staff of the Orgone Institute and the Orgone Institute Research Laboratories Inc. (a non-profit organization). The purpose of this publication is:

  • To inform the public on the progress made in experimental and theoretical research in the field of cosmic orgone energy.

  • To report on the advances made in the field of medical application of orgone energy in diseases such as the cancer biopathy, high blood pressure, schizophrenia and biopathic diseases in general.

  • To keep the public up to date on such matters as are of public concern and in the interest of the public.

  • To give regular reports on the major obstacles which we encounter in performing our professional duties as researchers, physicians, educators, social workers and administrators of human health.

  • To publish factual and financial reports from the files of the Orgone Institute.

  • To publish letters of public interest together with the answers we are able to give; and in general to accomplish whatever appears necessary to help the public enjoy the beneficial effects of orgone energy.

It will be up to the public and its responsible agencies to learn to understand this new branch of natural science and medicine and to use it practically, to help it along on its way, and to protect it against what is evil in man’s character structure."

Note: Two issues of the Orgone Energy Bulletin are sold separately and are not included in the purchase price of the Orgone Energy Bulletin:
