Roger Nelson, Ph.D. was Coordinator of Research at the Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research (PEAR) laboratory at Princeton University from 1980 to 2002, and has directed the Global Consciousness Project (GCP), since its inception in 1997.
Interests in psychology, physics, philosophy and the arts have given opportunities to collaborate with creative interdisciplinary teams at PEAR and elsewhere developing ways to study consciousness and intention. Building on years of laboratory experiments, Roger began using random event generator (REG) technology in the field to study effects of special states of group consciousness. This led naturally to the Global Consciousness Project (GCP), which is designed to register indications of a coalescing global consciousness responding to major world events such as 9/11, the beginnings of war, or New Year's Eve. Speculative interpretations suggest that we may be looking at some form of consciousness field.
Dr. Nelson is the author of "Connected: The Emergence of Global Consciousness," and co-author of, “Die Welt-Kraft in Dir” (German language).

Professor Shin Lin teaches cell biology, biomedical engineering, and integrative medicine at the School of Biological Sciences and is a member of the Susan Samueli Integrative Health Institute at the University of California, Irvine. His Laboratory for Mind-Body Signaling and Energy Research (MindBodyLab.Bio.UCI.edu) uses hi-tech approaches to study the health benefits of Tai Chi, Qigong, and traditional Chinese medical therapies. Among findings by his research team are: Tai Chi and Qigong practices increase blood flow measured with laser Doppler flowmetry, accompanied by a coordinated increase in electrical flow measured at acupuncture points; similar increases in blood flow are also produced by acupuncture, acupressure, moxibustion, and topical herbal medicine; application of electrical flow of physiological range to produce a D.C. electric field changes the cytoskeleton and consequently the directionality of the movement of cells grown in culture; electromyography shows that Tai Chi and Qigong movements are excellent exercises for muscle groups involved in fall prevention and in stretching for relief of back/shoulder/neck pain; meditation is a dual state of relaxed concentration shown by analysis of brain wave patterns, heart rate variability, and near infrared spectra; slow-deep breathing or pressure on relaxation acupoints can mitigate in real time the elevation of heart rate, blood pressure, and sympathetic function induced in the laboratory by stressful video games and movies.
Dr. Lin has a broad background and interests in the biological sciences (Ph.D. in Biological Chemistry from UCLA; postdoctoral studies in Biochemistry & Biophysics at University of California, San Francisco), Traditional Chinese Medicine (training in acupuncture for Physical Medicine at Hong Kong Polytechnic University), and Chen Style Tai Chi (In-door training with Grandmaster Chen Zhanglei of the Henan Chen Family Village). He was formerly Chairman of Biophysics at Johns Hopkins University, Dean of the School of Biological Sciences and Associate Vice Chancellor for Biomedical Initiatives at University of California, Irvine, and a Visiting Professor at both Shanghai University of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Hong Kong City University.

Meditative movement as a category of exercise: implications for research, (NIH)
"The human body creates self regulatory factors that keep us well. These are functionally generated healing resources – nutrition, exercise, sleep, hydration, stress mastery, etc. Each of these requires choice. Mind-Body Practice empowers choice making. As a doctor of Chinese medicine with 40 years of clinical practice, following 40 years of clinical practice, having been involved in numerous research projects and with 10 research trips to China, I am sure that health education (health maximization) is far superior to medical intervention (disease treatment). Such education should begin at home, of course, but most adults in the contemporary world are not health educated. Educating and inspiring children regarding health sustainability is the solution. I can think of no more powerful way to expedite Mind Body's powerful benefits for health and consciousness than to expand its use as a core part of Public Education worldwide, via a UN Resolution advocating Mind Body Education to public educators worldwide--the goal of the GTP."

"Mind-Body education is the single most powerful cognitive, health, and behavioral support for students' future careers and lifelong happiness. I speak with the experience of an expert: I have a Master’s Degree in Educational Psychology and a Doctorate in Educational Technology, and have been teaching for over 30 years. I’ve also done primary research that demonstrates that students who do qigong meditation just before taking a test do better on that test than students who either exercise or study just before a test. Implementing Mind-Body education as proposed in GTP could change the world for the better – both now and into the future."

William Douglas teaches/presents Mind Body Education for the University of Kansas Health System's patients, medical staff, and medical university programs, and has taught through major medical centers across the United States. He was invited to present on 'Mind Body's promise to society' at the NIH, and has presented for the National Parkinson's Foundation, the American Heart Association, the ALS Foundation, Midwest Diabetes Conference, and for Catholic Hospice Workers. He was commissioned to create a Mind Body DVD in collaboration with Boehringer Ingelheim pharmaceuticals for people dealing with Parkinson's Disease, which was provided for free to patients via physicians/neurology departments throughout the United States.
William was a pioneer in teaching Mind Body in public and private schools to students of all ages, elementary through university, including for the National Catholic Youth Conference, and in Penal (prison) Rehabilitation programs. He taught Mind Body to students with developmental challenges through the University of Missouri "Summer College" program.
"My decades of teaching students of all ages Mind Body, in age-appropriate ways, has shown me that students embrace Mind Body Education quite naturally. And when you look at the mounting science from the past 30 years--it becomes so obviously apparent that Mind Body Education should have become a core part of Public Education a long long time ago. I can think of no single action we could take as a nation or human race that would more profoundly improve global society and our economy than the UN Resolution goal of the Global Transformation Project."

UK HEALTH RADIO’s Clara Apollo, curates and co-presents the weekly ‘Chi Time’ program, alongside her ‘Chi Time TV’ Youtube channel and ‘Chi Time’ podcast. Clara is an Elemental Qigong teacher trainer and co-founder of ‘OneQi’ a hub for Qigong Teachers. Her Mind Body Education path started as a nurse within the UK’s National Health Service (NHS) and eventually was led outside this system to find more effective Mind Body solutions and her life-purpose career opened up.
Clara trained as a Registered Nurse in Oxford at the John Radcliffe Hospital from 1979 – 1982, becoming a staff nurse on a Lung Disease ward at the Churchill Hospital from 1982-83. During that time she gained a wider understanding of the organization of the NHS (UK National Health System) and realized her core desire was to be involved in ‘preventative healthcare,’ rather than ‘symptomatic disease management.’
Not long after the birth of her son, Clara began to suffer severe RSI tenosynovitis in both forearms which became debilitating. Her doctor offered steroid injections for the pain, which she refused, searching for more holistic ways to treat the condition. The doctor referred her to a physiotherapist in the NHS who did Western acupuncture, the positive effects of which spurred her to begin researching Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).
Her TCM journey led through various natural holistic therapies which culminated in Clara becoming an Elemental Qigong practitioner and subsequently a teacher - since 2000 - of this ancient Chinese Health Art and Science. Her broadcasting life began in 2010 when asked to introduce listeners to Qigong on community radio. Getting her own weekly show ‘Chi Time’ in 2012 eventually led to her become part of the international UK HEALTH RADIO focusing on Mind Body solutions for modern health disorders.
“My early nursing career, and own health challenges, and subsequent healing, showed me that Mind Body holistic preventative practices are primary to having a life we can love living. We could be saving ourselves vast amounts in healthcare costs by continuing to educate ourselves and our fellow citizens in intelligent Mind Body practices. What led me to the Global Transformation Project was the realization that making science-based Mind Body Education a core part of Public Education worldwide could be the key solution to our ongoing global healthcare and economic crisis. And, when you look at the health and educational benefits of Mind Body practices on helping create more intelligent, creative, less troubled individuals as well as students who can read and perform mathematics at higher levels when using Mind Body Education, it seems so odd this has not happened already.”
