Nik Hayes

Nik Hayes is a UK based author and researcher. He first became interested in photographing invisible energetic phenomena after a low altitude encounter with a large, strange, visibly pulsating object on Christmas day, 2008. Unable to find a satisfactory explanation of what he had seen, he eventually discovered the work of Trevor James Constable, through his books The Cosmic Pulse of Life and They Live in the Sky (1).It was through this that he became aware of the work of the Italian research group, the GRCU, as well as Luciano Boccone’s rare book, UFO-La Realta Nascosta (2).

Influenced by this earlier work, Hayes began a quest to gather his own photographic evidence of invisible energetic phenomena. After designating a research area on some land adjacent to his house situated in countryside near Oxford, he constructed a cloudbuster, and began using infrared photography and movie footage. He spent much of the first year concentrating on the infrared part of the spectrum, but within a short time was also recording ultraviolet footage. He also used a Geiger radiation counter for energy peak detection purposes. Geiger counters are known to be reactive to orgone charge.

In 2011 Hayes created the Quest for the Invisibles (QFTI) YouTube channel, on which he uploaded videos of the various phenomena he had captured using infrared and ultraviolet recording equipment.

Hayes continued with his photographic work right through until the late summer of 2015, at which point he began compiling his research notes and photographic evidence into what would be published as Quest for the Invisibles by The Book Tree, California (3). Shortly after the publication of the book Hayes started the Quest for the Invisibles website (4). After the launch of the site Hayes began what would eventually form a two year photographic investigation into invisible night-time phenomena. He managed to photograph a whole range of apparently invisible phenomenon, not just in the skies, but also at a much lower altitude. Hayes has been interviewed on UK and internet radio and regularly gives talks about his work.

The Living Body: Wilhelm Reich’s Influence on Contemporary Psychotherapies


In pursuing the development of psychosomatic medicine and an energetic model of health which respected the importance of psyche and soma equally, Wilhelm Reich created the foundation for what ultimately came to be known as the fields of Body Psychotherapy, Somatic Psychology and others.

Building upon the conference we presented in the summer of 2021, Wilhelm Reich and Psychoanalysis, the goal of this conference is to map the field of body-centered therapy today. Speakers from the Americas, Europe and Australia, representing Reich’s Orgone Therapy as well as a variety of schools which are heirs to Reich such as Radix, Bioenergetics, Biodynamic Therapy, Biosynthesis, Gestalt, Navarro, Core Energetics and other modalities based in important ways on his approach, will present and describe their respective theories, training processes and therapeutic methods.

Historians will present an overview of Reich’s evolution from psychoanalysis to character analysis, to the more body-centered character analytic vegetotherapy, and beyond.

By exploring this field through the common denominator, the theories and techniques developed by Wilhelm Reich, we hope to generate interaction and exchanges and highlight the similarities, differences and relationships between traditions.

With so many schools of therapy represented, there are bound to be some differences of opinion about theory and practice. By bringing them together, we hope to give participants a comprehensive overview of the field and build bridges between individuals and groups who have much in common and might benefit from direct, respectful interaction with one another.
