New Discoveries, Surprising Insight.

For more than 30 years, members of the  Institute for Consciousness Research (ICR) have worked tirelessly to raise awareness about Kundalini - a discovery that could be the most important scientific breakthrough of our time.

What is Kundalini?

The rediscovery of a hidden but powerful mechanism that is helping us solve the riddle of consciousness.

News and Events

This article Revelation and Inspiration, by G. Philippe Menos and Karen A. Jones Menos explores Revelation and Inspiration as paranormal phenomena in light of the Kundalini hypothesis.
It examines what some ancient and esoteric traditions tell us about these phenomena, including an interpretation of symbols surrounding Hermes/Thoth (Ancient Egypt), Vak (India), Quetzalcoatl/The Feathered Serpent, (Mayans of Mesoamerica), and Merlin (British Isles).
Historical examples of Revelation, inspiration, creativity, and genius include Mozart, Beethoven, Nostradamus, Mohammad, Newton, Neo-Platonists, Gopi Krishna, Shakespeare, Lu Chi, Goethe, Pascal, Nietzsche, Sri Aurobindo, Guru Nanak, Picasso, Einstein, and Milarepa.

For those who are looking for a simple, logical, concise explanation of what it means to be enlightened, the Emerging Sciences Foundation recently posted a Youtube video of a webinar presented by Michael Bradford on this topic. The physiological mechanism that brings about this state is also discussed, as well as the physical and personality traits that are associated with this state.

For those who are interested in exploring these ideas in more depth, two of Michael’s recent ICR newsletter articles – The New Paradigm, and Prana and Kundalini: Aspects of Shakti have now been posted in the Research section of this site.

It is with great anticipation that we have waited to see the publication of Susan Maynard's book, "The Illumination of Dr. Bucke". Many years ago Susan came to our annual ICR conference and presented her in-depth study of Dr. Bucke in a slide presentation, which gave a beautiful overview of his life and theory about the evolution of consciousness. To say the least it was outstanding. The ideas that Bucke expressed in his book "Cosmic Consciousness" have had a great impact on many people. In fact his book has continued to be re-printed for over 100 years. Gopi Krishna researched Bucke as well and was delighted to see the complimentary aspect of Bucke's writings with the Kundalini theory that he was proposing to the scientific community.

This book takes us on an interesting journey through the life of Dr. Bucke, his early years, his illumination, his understanding about the evolution of consciousness and the great influence that Walt Whitman, imprinted upon him.

We celebrate Susan's family for their loving devotion and continued efforts to publish and distribute this new and important book, which is now a part of Susan's special legacy. The "Illumination of Dr. Bucke" can be ordered from their website and the actual slide presentation can also be viewed there.

Gopi Krishna: The Kashmir Discourses

Gopi Krishna: The Kashmir Discourses

In August 1977 Gopi Krishna gave a series of 8 discourses to a group of spiritual seekers from Canada at his Central Institute for Kundalini Research near Srinagar, Kashmir, India. In this transcript of these talks, he discusses in detail the characteristics of an enlightened person, and various methods to achieve the state of Cosmic Consciousness. He also spoke on other related topics, such as karma, reincarnation, and meditation. Much of this invaluable material is being presented for the first time, and does not appear in any of his other books.
