What We Do

CHI actualizes its mission to accelerate the science and practice of consciousness and healing via Transdisciplinary Research, Technology Innovation, and Education and Outreach.


Transdisciplinary Science

We believe that a deeper understanding of consciousness, healing and, most importantly, the relation between them, will produce major advances for humankind in both science and in healthcare. Successful research into complex phenomena such as consciousness and healing can best be accomplished in a transdisciplinary approach that involves a broad variety array of visionary scientists and healthcare practitioners. As a “collaborative accelerator”, CHI facilitates innovative research and dialogue across scientific disciplines, to deepen our understanding of how consciousness and healing each impact the other. Read about our recent activities in the area of biofield science and healing here.

Technology Innovation

CHI recognizes that a major pathway to generate societal relevance and impact for consciousness and healing is to creatively apply knowledge in technology applications that will benefit society in terms of wellness and healing.

CHI science and innovation teams work with corporations and inventors, to bring ideas to impact both in terms of societal value and revenue generation in the vastly growing market of consciousness, healing and wellness. Specific CHI activities and services within technology innovation include:

  • Corporate consultation, including “Landscape Mapping”, for particular areas/IP of interest within consciousness, healing and wellness
  • Device testing and validation
  • API/SDK creation for wellness applications
  • Facilitating relationships between inventors and investors

Through these activities, CHI serves as a hub to aid inventors, scientists, and corporations to create and distribute technologies for health transformation.

Education and Outreach

Knowledge Translation With Engagement

Embodied Learning

CHI hosts experiential and transformative educational programs to facilitate a science-based and embodied understanding of consciousness-based practices for healing. These programs are appropriate for a wide variety of participants, including healthcare practitioners, scientists, technologists, artists, students and all wishing to deepen and incorporate their understanding of consciousness and healing in their daily lives.

Healing For the Underserved

CHI and its networks share a common mission is to provide healing to all societies, especially those who are in greatest need. CHI helps facilitate healing services for communities most in need through its collaborative organizations, and helps practitioners gather metrics for their practices so that they may further scale their programs.
