Jonina Dourif was one of the first civilians trained in CRV technology. She had been the subject of PSI research and precognition most of her life. For many years, Joni worked in the field of psychotherapy, specializing in Jungian clinical Psychology. Carl Jung's model of the human psyche matched and supported the idea of humans possessing these natural innate psi abilities.
Joni was asked
to commercialize PSI TECH and Technical Remote
Viewing for the civilian sector in 1993. She became the Vice President of PSI TECH and immediately moved the company from New Mexico to Beverly Hills, California. She opened the Professional Development Course (in-house TRV training) and taught a
highly successful 10 day course for 6 years.
In 1996, Joni Dourif created the first Remote Viewing training tapes to provide the public at large with specialized training. The tapes were filmed by an Oscar nominee and it was reported that PSI TECH sold
almost one million dollars of remote viewing tapes on the first night they were announced on a national radio show. Subsequently, the company ended up in a lawsuit with a former tape distributor who wanted to repossess and own the products. After four years
of legal litigation PSI TECH was ordered by the court to pay the plaintiff $450,000. At this time, Edward Dames who was then President
of PSI TECH resigned and left Joni with the company and the company debt. Joni took over the helm as President, settled the court order, and later Dames' shares were sold and purchased by Dane
Spotts, former president of Zygon International.
