YOU CAN BE A HEALING PART OF HUMAN HISTORY ... AND CHANGE THE WORLD WITH US!
2 decades of global organizing led Founders of the Global Transformation Project to realize Mind Body Educators exist in virtually every major city/nation in the world ... and are a VASTLY UNDER-UTILIZED RESOURCE--by examining science on Mind Body and how it can not only transform Public Education ... but transform our entire planet's future.
There are scientifically proven methods to bring the brain into Alpha Brain Wave States, referred to as meditative states in the past (Meditation, Yoga, Tai Chi, Mindfulness, Chi Kung). Science reveals that when people (or students) go into Alpha State regularly, amazing benefits occur; Less Illness, Stronger Immunity, Higher IQ, Better G.R.E. Reading Score, Math Proficiency, Verbal Fluency, Higher Test Scores, Less Bullying, Reduced ADD/ADHD ... and when all this science is considered, it becomes glaringly obvious there is no one single act humanity could take to improve our world on every level, than to make Mind Body Education a core aspect of Public Education. THE SCIENCE IS IN, and this could save our future economy as well.
YES, THE SCIENCE IS IN ... including a one hour per day Mind Body Education class (Scientifically proven practices; Yoga, Tai Chi, Meditation, Chi Kung, and Mindfulness) in Public Education worldwide ... WOULD SAVE TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS ANNUALLY in saved health/social costs! This is not exaggeration, science validates this figure of potential savings. If you take the time to browse this website and truly wrap your head around the vastly complex challenges society deals with THAT COULD BE RESOLVED by this Global Transformation Project Resolution, you will understand what a simple elegant easily-attainable solution to our myriad modern challenges this resolution is. This U.N. Res. would not be mandatory, BUT it would educate Public Educators worldwide on the profound science on Mind Body (Yoga, Tai Chi, Meditation, Chi Kung, and Mindfulness--Science-based Practices).
Not only that, but it would provide teachers, principals, school boards, who already know that Mind Body Education should have been part of Public Education long ago ... with the BACKING OF A UNITED NATIONS RESOLUTION PROVIDING THE SCIENCE.
What are we waiting for? The Global Transformation Project is committed to lobbying every U.N. Mission worldwide to co-sponsor this historic U.N. Resolution--once we get 100,000 signatures on the Petition. SIGN THE PETITION and then share regularly, social media, etc.
WHAT IS MIND BODY? The Big 5 Mind Body practices (Meditation, Tai Chi, Yoga, Chi Kung, Mindfulness) all have the ability to bring brain waves into "Alpha Brain Wave" states, and that is where all the profound benefits of Mind Body occur. WE CAN MEASURE THIS ... and new technologies would enable Public Educators worldwide to have science-based confirmation if their Mind Body teachers/programs are achieving this result.
THIS IS A PROFOUND TIME IN HUMAN HISTORY ... Mind Body teachers exist in every city in every nation on the planet, the science is in that using them in Public Education worldwide would save TRILLIONS in future health & social costs, AND we have a low cost technology that can ensure children worldwide are being trained in Mind Body Alpha Brain Wave practices to transform not just their lives, but our world.
There is a precedent for this. In 2014 the U.N. General Assembly passed a resolution for "The International Day of Yoga," with a record number of co-sponsoring nations (177).
Click to view our growing list of esteemed supporters. Become an ambassador for the GTP Petition ... when we get to 100,000 signatures we begin manifesting this future changing U.N. Resolution with the soul force of 100,000 of you envisioning a hopeful positive future.
"Dr. Herbert Benson, Harvard Researcher & author of "The Relaxation Response," said, '60% to 90% of all health issues sending people to doctors are caused by stress, and best treated or prevented by Mind Body practices (Yoga, Meditation, Tai Chi, Chi Kung, Mindfulness).'
IMAGINE ... just imagine for a moment, how profoundly it will affect medical care ... when Public School students worldwide are exposed to 1 hour per day Mind Body Education (The five scientifically proven effective practices; Tai Chi, Meditation, Chi Kung, Yoga, Mindfulness) K through 12th grade ... BEFORE they come to healthcare. Like many Mind Body teachers, I teach in healthcare, for the University of Kansas Health System and School of Medicine ... and as I work with folks so tangled up in pharmaceuticals and horrible life habits ... I can't help but wish we could have begun teaching them Mind Body decades BEFORE they ended up in my hospital class--when they were Public School Children."
-- William Douglas, Founder of The Global Transformation Project, and Founder of World Tai Chi & Qigong Day
This video is a profoundly moving example of the urgency of spreading the word on The Global Transformation Project's U.N. Resolution PETITION CAMPAIGN.
This lovely young African woman opens her heart on the value of her teaching Mind Body to Primary School Students in Africa, and the crushing challenges in the developing world that could be solved. The Global Transformation Project's U.N. Resolution can lead to TRILLIONS of saved health & social costs worldwide, year after year after year?
-- Helen Keller
Part of the inspiration for The Global Transformation Project was World Tai Chi & Qigong Day organizing. WTCQD founders discovered that Mind Body science reveals these practices can change education, healthcare, and the future of our planet ... BUT, also their organizing revealed there are visionary Mind Body teachers in virtually every city in every nation on the planet--and it would require a small effort and investment to bring them into Public Education worldwide.
Hear this profoundly moving video of open-hearted visionaries worldwide making this global vision of hope and possibility for our planet a reality in our time.
And particularly, hear the young South African woman teaching Mind Body in some of the most impoverished area of the world--and the challenges they face and the hope the Global Transformation Project can bring the world, a world in need of such vision.
The Director of International Consciousness Research Laboratories, Dr. Jeffrey Dunne, carying on the early hostoric world-altering science from the Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research (PEAR) Laboratory ... offers data revealing we are literally changing the world around us when we go into Mind Body consciousness states--bringing a greater coherence into the collective consciousness. Get a glimpse of how Mind Body events held around the world, like World Tai Chi & Qigong Day, Int'l Day of Yoga, and Global Peace Meditations, etc. are literally changing the consciousness of the entire planet.
This historic Global Transformation Project Discussion Series brings together top Scientists, Education, Health, & Mind Body Leaders providing science-based understanding of how profoundly The Global Transformation Project's UN Resolution Campaign can change the world.
Learn the science from HeartMath Institute's Director of Research revealing the world altering potential of GTP's vision.
Besides the obvious science showing how Mind Body Education in Public Education can bring the educational experience of students worldwide to a higher level ... but, as we are improving global health & education with GTP's goal ... we will also be providing a healing impact on the entire world.
Learn the science from the past Director of Princeton University Engineering Anomalies Research Laboratory on how events like World Tai Chi Day, and the International Day of Yoga have measurably increased coherence in global consciousness.
HELP US GAIN 100,000 SIGNATURES for our UN Resolution petition! Spread our website, science, and Petition with everyone, and Mind Body organizations worldwide ... and when we get to 100,000 signatures, we will begin petitioning UN Missions worldwide to support this globally transforming UN Resolution for Mind Body Education in Public Education.
You can sign our Petition to the United Nations General Assembly in support of our Mind Body Education in Public Education. Contact the Founder, William Douglas, with questions. Click for international media coverage of The Global Transformation Project. When we get 100,000 Mind Body Education supporters from around the world to SIGN OUR PETITION, we will begin approaching UN Missions worldwide requesting they co-sponsor this Resolution. [REMEMBER, the UN Resolution for an International Day of Yoga, passed with a record number of co-sponsoring nations ... the world is READY for this. Spread this page/petition wide & far.]
The Global Transformation Project (GTP) is a simple elegant plan that would save TRILLIONS in future health & social costs--supported by a growing coalition of Scientists, and Health & Education Professionals worldwide (scroll down).
What is it? An elegant science-based plan for the future! It is way past time for science-based Mind Body Education (Yoga, Meditation, Mindfulness, Tai Chi, and Chi Kung) to be part of Public Education worldwide. Backed by SCIENTISTS, EDUCATION & HEALTH PROFESSIONALS, and citizens worldwide ... not only taking student performance to a new paradigm, but also reducing teacher burn out a key to successful Public Education.
YOU CAN BECOME A HEALING PART OF HISTORY by signing our Petition to the United Nations General Assembly in support of our Mind Body Education in Public Education UN Resolution. (Your information will never be shared/sold. UN Missions receiving our Petition will only see your name and country, NOT your email address). Click to see draft of Resolution.
HOWEVER, THE "MOST IMPORTANT THING" you can do to support this effort ... is to share this mission widely. The more signatures we have, the more soul force we have behind our appeal to UN Missions worldwide--and there is a precedent for this; the UN set a record for co-sponsoring nations for a Resolution by passing the International Day of Yoga in 2014 with 177 sponsoring nations.
We are building a global coalition of people who want a better society and planet to help us advocate for a United Nations Resolution calling for SCIENCE-BASED Mind Body Education (Yoga, Meditation, Tai Chi, Chi Kung, Mindfulness) to become part of Public Education worldwide. It would not be mandated for any nation, any school, or any student--students who opt out could have a "study hall" hour each day instead. GTP'S UN Resolution would be a vehicle to educate educators worldwide on science that would lift education to a whole new level ... but, this concerns YOU, not just students.
Again, there is a United Nations precedent for this. In 2014 the United Nations General Assembly approved a UN Resolution creating the "International Day of Yoga," a total of 177 nations co-sponsored the resolution, which is the highest number of co-sponsors ever for any UNGA resolution of such nature. And in past years government bodies worldwide, including 22 USA Governors, officially proclaimed World Tai Chi Day for their states and nations.
WELL, I'M NOT A SCHOOL STUDENT, WHY SHOULD I CARE? Because you/society are paying TRILLIONS of unnecessary dollars, euros, etc. on healthcare, police, prisons, etc. that could be avoided. THE SCIENCE IS IN ON THIS--it's just that most are unaware of it. Plus, in an age of Pandemic, 100s of millions of students worldwide who could have STRONGER IMMUNITY to virus's could help avert future global health related disruptions like the one we all just experienced that resulted in 500,000,000 small businesses being crushed (scroll down for below science on COVID, T Cells, Helper T Cells and CD4 Cells, and Mind Body impact).
Science reveals that prisons, schools, or cities who incorporate Mind Body Education see reduced violence and violent crime--not by a little, by a LOT! Science also reveals that 60% to 90% of illnesses sending people to doctors are caused by stress, and best treated or prevented by Mind Body Education (Yoga, Tai Chi, Meditation, Mindfulness, and Chi Kung--all science-based practices).
Click the tab at the top of the page "THE SCIENCE ON EDUCATION" to understand why no rational educator in the world would not readily embrace the GTP's goal--it will be a "no brainer" getting this into Public Education worldwide. Also learn why no rational government, police, prison official, TAXPAYER, or any rational person would not embrace it.
THERE IS NO ONE SINGLE ACTION WE COULD TAKE AS A GLOBAL SOCIETY THAT WOULD HAVE MORE POSITIVE SOCIAL, HEALTH, AND MONETARY BENEFIT TO US ALL ... THAN ENACTING THE GLOBAL TRANSFORMATION PROJECT's VISION--THIS UN RESOLUTION.

VERY exciting data. Scroll down for more data on Mind Body and Immunity, or click here for profoundly exciting Mind Body for Education science.
Science shows that Mind-Body Education could save trillions of dollars annually in future health costs, boost global immunity by 50% to 100%, increase students' IQs, creativity, emotional-intellectual flexibility, reduce bullying, treat ADD / ADHD, and save trillions in prison/law enforcement, & social costs worldwide.
Science reveals science-based Mind-Body Education as part of Public Education worldwide would create an even Less Violent generation with Greater Compassion & Empathy, Less Depression/Anxiety, More Creative Problem Solvers able to Think Multi-Dimensionally (Gamma Wave Brain Function).
INTERVIEW EXCERPT ... from CONCLUSION OF INTERVIEW ...
Global Transformation Project Founder:
"There's just endless reasons why this should be part of Public Education because it makes smarter students and once we get it into a UN Resolution, and get it out to Public Education around the world, we're talking about 100s of millions of new meditators. And we know that a mind going into a coherent state of consciousness has a healing effect beyond that meditator, I have tons of research validating everything I am saying here ... and so we're talking about global transformation in a very real way and we could ALL be a part of this. This IS doable, we can really do this! This is really within our grasp!"
UK HEALTH RADIO HOST (Clara Apollo, "Chi Time" Program):
"Honestly Bill, I'm having all the shivers here in such a beautiful way when you said those words it's like you're speaking a total truth. This is what it's really about--The Global Transformation Project. This is our opportunity at this time 2022, here we grow! We can do this. And the work [science] that you're bringing through to back up what we can experience we can help other people to understand why it's interesting for them to look at this as well."

COVID 19 RESEARCH and MIND BODY IMMUNITY
COVID 19 and CD4+ / T CELLS (Scroll down for Mind Body on T Cells / CD4+ Cells)
A STUDY revealed that front line healthcare workers who had elevated T Cell / CD 4 Cell counts were profoundly less likely to contract COVID 19 than their peers who had lower cell levels.
Can people be naturally immune or resistant to COVID-19?
Yahoo News, April 26, 2022
The study evaluated a group of U.K. health care workers during the first wave of the pandemic who were exposed to the virus but didn’t develop COVID-19. Researchers found that the presence of cross-reactive memory T cells among some of the participants contributed to “the rapid clearance of SARS-CoV-2 and other coronavirus infections.”

Pre-Existing T Cells Play Key Role in SARS-CoV-2 Infection and Vaccination
The researchers identified a peptide (S816-830) in the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein that CD4+ T cells in all groups—even those unexposed to SARS-CoV-2—recognized. The S816-830 protein was recognized by CD4+ T cells in 20% of unexposed individuals, in over 50% of SARS-CoV-2 convalescents, and in 97% of subjects treated with the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine.

Effect of Integrated Yoga (IY) on psychological states and CD4 counts of HIV-1 infected patients: A randomized controlled pilot study
Results: Within group comparison showed a significant reduction in depression scores (F [1, 21] =4.19, P < 0.05) and non-significant reduction in anxiety scores along with non significant increment in CD4 counts in the yoga group. In the control group, there was a non-significant increase in anxiety and depression scores and reduction in CD4 counts. Between-group comparison revealed a significant reduction in depression scores (F [1, 21] =5.64, P < 0.05) and significant increase in CD4 counts (F [1, 21] =5.35, P < 0.05) in the yoga group as compared to the control.
Conclusion: One month practice of IY may reduce depression and improve immunity in HIV-1 infected adults.

Meditation done at an intense level may bring a significant boost to the inner workings of your immune system.
The finding follows a blood sample analysis that took pre- and post-meditation snapshots of genetic activity among more than 100 men and women. That analysis suggested that meditation boosted the activity of hundreds of genes known to be directly involved in regulating immune response.
The result: Three months after the retreat's conclusion, Chandran and his colleagues found an uptick in activity involving 220 immune-related genes, including 68 genes engaged in so-called "interferon signaling."

Yoga into Cancer Care: A Review of the Evidence-based Research
An impaired immune system may facilitate tumor development.[178,181,182,183,184,185] Several studies have shown that yoga reduces stress, depression, and anxiety, changes cellular milieu by genomic alteration, and enhances cellular immunity.[186,187] It is therefore very likely that yoga could prevent tumorigenesis and progression and possibly help cure cancer. Interestingly, a number of case reports from Meares demonstrated that the practice of yoga/meditation was able to regress the growth of tumors.[188,189,190,191] The above findings suggest that yoga may help prevent tumorigenesis and progression and ultimately cure cancer. Of course, well-designed studies are needed to examine this hypothesis.
