We hypothesize that everything is interconnected, and that embodying that awareness reveals information and energy not limited by space and time, which can create breakthroughs in transformation, innovation, and well-being.

Our research focuses on three primary questions:

How are we interconnected?

What is the role of Consciousness in the physical world?

Can we access information not limited by space and time?

What characteristics allow us to access information and energy from beyond time and space? What tools can we use to access information and energy from beyond time and space more easily?

Does that create breakthroughs in transformation, innovation, and well-being?

What is the role of Consciousness in mental and physical health?

With our programs and research team, we:

  • Communicate what we’ve learned in peer-reviewed scientific journals and scholarly meetings, and we translate our findings into educational products and curricula for targeted audiences and the general public.

  • Conduct basic science and laboratory research on mind-matter interactions, social science investigations of transformational experiences and practices and their impact on individual and collective wellness, and clinical and applied studies testing the real-world effectiveness of consciousness-based interventions.

  • Advance the study of consciousness by training young scientists interested in noetic topics through our internship program and facilitating strategic collaborations and invitational meetings among scientists and scholars to accelerate development of new, cross disciplinary studies of consciousness and transformation.
