CHI INDIA DELEGATION
Power of We: CHI Undertakes Collective Consciousness Research in India
What is the power of collective consciousness? Do people synchronize together during group prayer and meditation, and does the energy of a space really change with continued prayer or meditation? To help answer these questions from a collaborative, intercultural perspective, CHI and its partner Miraglo Foundation fostered a delegation of 7 scientists to Tamil Nadu, India last November, where we visited several ashrams in the traditions of bhakti yoga, jnana yoga, and integral yoga. Specifically, our delegation visited Sri Sakti Narayani Amma’s Golden Temple in Peedam, Tamil Nadu, Ramana Maharishi ashram in Tiruvannamalai, and Sri Aurobindo ashram in Pondicherry, and Auroville.
“What happens to us as a collective, when we come together in meditation and prayer”?
