A New York Times best-selling author, researcher, lecturer and corporate consultant, Dr. Joe Dispenza has developed a practical formula to help people transform their lives. His mission unifies complex branches of science in an approachable way – focused on proven research, “Stories of Transformation” testimonials and the scientific data behind spontaneous remissions. Inspired by the latest findings in neuroscience, psychoneuroimmunology, epigenetics and quantum physics, his work integrates essential knowledge about the mind-body connection, which teaches people how to heal various health conditions and make significant changes in their lives.

Since 2010, Dr. Dispenza has partnered with renowned scientists and universities – including University of California San Diego, Harvard University, Stanford University and others – to perform extensive research on the effects of meditation on the brain and body.

During research studies conducted at his seven-day advanced retreats around the world, Dr Dispenza and his team have gathered more than 20,000 brain scans (quantitative QEEG and fMRI) and more than 10,000 heart-rate variability (HRV) measurements. Their findings demonstrate the effects of sustained, elevated states of mind and emotions – and how self-regulation produces significant effects on heart and brain function, immune response and overall mind-body health.

Working with thousands of novice and advanced meditators in these studies, Dr. Dispenza and his team have analyzed a database of 3,000 blood metabolites collected before and after the retreats. Using pre- and post-samples, they have studied epigenetic and microbiome changes, a gross spectrum of urine metabolites, and the healing effects of breast milk.

Dr. Dispenza’s team also has conducted extensive research on cancer, Alzheimer’s disease and neurogenesis, as well as the effects of advanced meditators’ natural resistance to the COVID-19 virus; isolating a specific protein that strengthens the immune responses. The team also has measured how intention can directly influence gene expression and protein regulation. They have measured changes in cellular mitochondrial function, endogenous opioids, neurotransmitters, telomere length and variations in bioactive cellular metabolic particles.

Research studies conducted at their retreats also include speech analysis to better understand the language of transformation and transcendental experiences; studies on twins and closely bonded pairs; the use of random-event generators to measure changes in collective consciousness; and the biological effects of in-person as well as Remote Coherence HealingTM sessions.

Dr. Dispenza and his team are expanding their reach to include communities in need around the world. They’ve worked with more than 1,000 children to study the effects of meditation in a school setting; veterans – including U.S. Navy SEALS – and others suffering with post-traumatic stress disorder; inmates at prisons in the U.S. and Mexico; indigenous tribes in the U.S.; and children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Teaching self-regulation through heart and brain coherence, they’re bringing healing to some of the world’s most vulnerable populations.
