#2586: Richard Boylan

For those really looking to get lost down a rabbit hole, New Age psychotherapies is an obvious place to go. New Age psychotherapies range from the feebly bizarre to the dangerous, and some have even managed to go relatively mainstream. Richard Boylan is a classic in the genre, though what exactly he offers is not entirely easy to wrap one’s head around. Boylan is, according to himself, a “Ph.D. behavioral scientist, anthropologist, university associate professor (emeritus), certified clinical hypnotherapist, researcher, and Councillor”, as well as “a consultant to Star Kids and Star Seed adults seeking to understand better their origin, identity and mission, in order to have full awareness and clarity about their identity, inner growth, spiritual development, and future path.” Precisely. He is also president of the Star Kids Project, Ltd., and “provides hypnotherapy for recalling the full details of partially-remembered close encounters with the Star Visitors which are stored in subconscious memory.”


Oh, yes, it is aliens! Boylan is not only an anthropologist, but an “exo-anthropologist, and has ostensibly, since 1989, “conducted research into human encounters with the Star Visitors,” which is apparently what spurred him to found his “Star Kids Project, Ltd in 2003”, which seeks to work “with these genetically-upgraded children with advanced abilities, and their families.” Yes, and the really scary ones here would presumably be the parents seeking out Boylan’s services.


Apparently Boylan fancies himself a real scientist, and he has presented his research at several conferences, all with scientifically legitimate-sounding names like “the 1992 M.I.T. Abduction Study Conference”, the “1995 Cosmic Cultures International Conference” and the “2008 International Symposium on Star Nations, Rome”. Boylan is also the author of numerous books, including


-       Close Extraterrestrial Encounters (1994)

-       Labored Journey To the Stars (1996)

-       Project Epiphany (1997),

-       Star Kids: the Emerging Cosmic Generation (2005)

-       The Human - Star Nations Connection (2012), which promises to teach you not only “how both the Sunday School explanation of where we came from and Charles Darwin’s are both wrong,” but who are really pulling the strings behind the constant crises, wars, financial turmoil, and political intrigue that keeps our society off-balance,” as well as the real reason why the UFO Cover-Up has been going on for 70 years” and how to [d]iscover latent abilities which your children and you never knew you had.”


On his website you can find a questionnaire you can use to determine whether your kid is a star seed. We normally don’t link to this kind of stuff, but will make an exception here. You probably recognize precisely the kind of parent for whom this questionnaire is designed. It is also increasingly gloriously deranged as it proceeds, and we suppose that special attention is indeed warranted for parents who answer ‘yes’ on questions that their child has “experienced a 'Walk-In' [replacement of the original human (dying) personality by a new (off-world) personality, which takes on the existing body and continues the life, having memory of earlier years but with different abilities and personality]” or  has an unusually large bioelectromagnetic-photic field extending outward from their body, (e.g., over 3 feet [1 meter]), as measured by dowsing rods”.


Diagnosis: Magnificently insane and utterly unfettered by the constraints that hold others back from completing their path to enlightenment, such as reality and reason. His program, though, can hardly be classified as entirely harmless, even if the parents attracted to it would probably have found other ways to subvert the wellbeing of their offspring anyways.


  1. Wasn't this guy a semi-regular on Art Bell's BS radio program?

    1. Wouldn't surprise me at all. I never actually followed that program closely, and it had its heydays before my time.
