I'm George Kuepper, originally from Wisconsin but, for many years now, a resident of the Mid-South. I earned a Master of Science from the University of Wisconsin in Agronomy in the mid-1970s and am blessed to have spent my entire career working on sustainable and organic agriculture for such noble entities as The Center for the Biology of Natural Systems in St. Louis, The National Center for Appropriate Technology (ATTRA), and the Kerr Center for Sustainable Agriculture in Oklahoma.
I discovered radionics in the 1980s while struggling to revive an Oklahoma blueberry planting where agricultural chemicals had been both overused and misused. The planting was the cornerstone for an eight-acre U-pick farm project for the aforementioned Kerr Center. We were replanting about 10% of the berry patch annually due to disease and other losses. Conventional testing by Universities and private labs told me what the symptoms were, but didn't help much with corrective action, other than to suggest more chemicals. It was certainly not sustainable. I'd reached the point where I'd try almost anything.
Around that time, I learned of radionics from several independent sources. I chose to listen to what the Universe seemed to be telling me, and I allowed myself to be dragged—often kicking and screaming—into a New Age art and science.
I took my first radionics class in 1986 from the well-known radionics trainer, Steve Westin. Thanks to his skill and patience, I returned to the farm with enough confidence to begin turning things around. It was amazing how rapidly change happened. Diseases and insect pests vanished. Bushes not only stopped dying but began to flourish. Even the weeds backed off from their earlier onslaught. The transformation was profound, not only for the farm but for myself. I'd found something I would stick with for the rest of my life. But...doesn't explain why I've created this Web site or authored books on radionics.
The reason is this: When I took my first training in 1986, I quickly discovered I was the worst student in the class. I was slow to understand; slow to pick up the skills. Without the exceptional instruction and the good fortune of a small class and Steve Westin's personal attention, I'd have failed entirely, and you would not be reading this. The challenge I faced in struggling to learn radionics convinced me I should do something to help others overcome such difficulties and learn this most-valuable skill.
It was sort of natural, really. I've always been interested in educational work. I see this as distinct from "proselytizing," and don't spend my time trying to sell folks on radionics, dowsing, or the ideas that support them. My objective is helping those who want to learn.
Most of the educational work I do is through writing. I created two books during the 1990s and describe them under the "Products" heading. They are largely training manuals of the kind that did not exist when I was first learning radionics. In them, I explain the foundations of radionics, how to use and maintain instruments, fundamental operations, and specific applications in several areas. One book is specifically dedicated to earth energy and agricultural work. These books were not intended to replace classroom or tutored training, but to supplement them by providing procedural details, clarification, and details that are easily forgotten or, sometimes, not well-covered by instructors.
Since retiring from my "day job" in sustainable agriculture--a career I've truly loved--I have focused on Biodynamic gardening. This has led me to write another book: Psychotronics and a Biodynamic Garden. It is being published by SteinerBooks and should be released in the Spring of 2021.
As a final note, I encourage all radionics and dowsing students to study widely; don't throw your lot in with a single "guru." I took formal classes from at least six different teachers and continue to use techniques and concepts from each of them. There is so much you can learn!!!
