Here is a way for you to experience the multi-wave resonance that’s only possible in the unique and acoustically perfect sound chamber of the Integratron, from your own home/office!
We are offering 1 hour VIRTUAL Sound Bath sessions LIVE from the Integratron that you can stream via Zoom. The experience includes:
This is an incredibly unique sonic journey which provides intense relaxation for the mind, body, and spirit. Please click on the links below to register ($20/person).
ZOOM AUDIO QUALITY NOTE: To get the best experience possible with our virtual sound baths, there is a setting that needs to be enabled in Zoom called “Original Sound”. This process is different for every device and make of device so find the one that applies to you. Please make sure your app is up to date as well.
For PC/Mac: Open Zoom and go to settings (cog wheel). Under the audio section there is a subcategory called “Music and Professional Audio”. There will be 4 boxes to check, make sure to check them all. The last step is while you are in the meeting, in the top left corner click the box that says “Turn on Original Sound”. Note: if you are running an outdated version of the app this setting will be under “advanced” in the audio section.
For Android/Iphone: You must not be currently in a meeting. Open the Zoom app and go to settings. Next tap “Meeting”. Scroll down to the button that says, “Use Original Sound” and activate it. There is one final step, while in the meeting tap the “More…” tab in the bottom right corner and “Enable Original Sound”.

“Sounds permeate our systems, resonating with our essence, so that inner chaos, conflict, and dissonance seem almost immediately to be transformed into harmony.”
“I believe unequivocally – and I’ve seen for myself the proof – that the use of sound is among the most powerful modalities ever embraced by twentieth-century practitioners.”
“Through the process of entrainment, sound can transform negative, repressed emotions into a state of psychological equanimity that has direct and immediate effects on our physiology. Sonic entrainment can also restore harmony between our innermost selves – our essence and the universe, thus re-awakening our spiritual consciousness.”
“When properly mobilized, sound can specifically entrain the human organism toward the greater harmony and homeostasis that it requires to remain vibrant and to regenerate after injury or illness. The properties of sound medicine -entrainment, harmony and homeostasis- represent the rational AND spiritual foundation for a new movement in the healing arts and sciences.”
“Sound and music can help you develop your own intuitions which, in turn, can help you with your own healing. The human capacity for intuition and its effects on the body, on relationships, and on one’s environment is not grounded on the occult or esoterica, but rather in hard scientific investigation by some of the great minds of physics and philosophy.”
“If we accept that sound is vibration and we know that vibration touches every part of our physical being, then we understand that sound is heard not only through our ears but through every cell in our bodies. One reason sound heals on a physical level is because it so deeply touches and transforms us on the emotional and spiritual planes. Sound can redress imbalances on every level of physiological functioning and can play a positive role in the treatment of virtually any medical disorder.”
The Integratron’s Landmark Nomination was approved in April of 2018 and is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Prepared and written by Daniel Paul, noted architectural historian, this document covers George Van Tassel’s role in UFOlogy and the design and build of the Integratron through its history.
George Van Tassel published and distributed these newsletters from 1953 until his death in 1978. His widow published one more newsletter in 1979. The College of Universal Wisdom was dissolved shortly after George’s death.
1910-1978 Author, inventor and controversial UFO advocate. Some agreed, some disagreed with his philosophy. None found him boring.
George Van Tassel, creator of the Integratron, was a legendary figure, an aeronautical engineer who worked for Lockheed, Douglas Aircraft and as a test pilot for Howard Hughes at Hughes Aviation. He was also one of the leaders in the UFO movement who held annual “Spacecraft Conventions” at Giant Rock for 25 years. Van Tassel said UFO contact and channelings and ideas from scientists such as Nikola Tesla led to the unique architecture of the Integratron. He spent 18 years constructing the building.
Van Tassel learned of Giant Rock from Frank Critzer, a prospector and desert dweller, who had excavated under the massive boulder to construct a dwelling of several small rooms protected from the fierce sun. Critzer had been killed in a explosion of the dynamite he kept stored in his rooms, the circumstances of which are still a mystery. The gutted rooms became storage for the Van Tassel family, but they slept outside the Rock and during the day tended the airport and their small cafe.
George Van Tassel began conducting weekly meditation sessions in 1953 in the rooms underneath Giant Rock which, he claimed, led to UFO contacts and finally to an actual encounter with extra-terrestrials when according to George, in August of that year, a saucer landed from the planet Venus, woke Van Tassel up and invited him onto the ship. There the aliens gave him a formula for a proprietary frequency for rejuvenating living cell tissues. In 1957 he began building a structure they called “The Integratron” to perform the rejuvenation. George described his creation this way, “The Integratron is a machine, a high-voltage electrostatic generator that would supply a broad range of frequencies to recharge the cell structure.”
His annual Spacecraft Conventions were attended by tens of thousands across two decades, featuring speakers that included high profile UFO contactees and pioneers in the fields of antigravity and primary energy research. Van Tassel led weekly meditations in the rooms under the rock from the 1950’s to the 1970’s, which he claimed led to UFO contacts.
The family hosted UFO conventions at Giant Rock (3 miles north of the Integratron) for almost 20 years to raise money for the Integratron project. In 1959, 11,000 people attended the spacecraft convention, and Van Tassel continued to work on the Integratron while writing a number of books on time travel and rejuvenation. Van Tassel died suddenly in 1978, after which the buildings at Giant Rock were vacated and gradually vandalized until the Bureau of Land Management found it necessary to bulldoze the remains.
