Where Science Meets Consciousness

our mission

The Foundation for Mind-Being Research, FMBR, was established in 1980 to assist in the creation of integrated models of human consciousness, models that encompass the physical, mental and spiritual aspects of the human experience. The objective was to bring the then-new field of consciousness studies into wider recognition as a bona fide field of science, and to explore whether consciousness arises out of physical matter (i.e., the brain) or whether it is a state of matter unto itself.

what we study




FREE ONLINE EVENT: The Magician’s Jewel is a large, exclusive multi-dimensional structure that’s been designed to hold the quintessential, heart essence meaning of the Vajrayana path (the Diamond Way) of Tibetan Buddhism in a symbolically awe-inspiring, immersive and interactive exhibition piece.

Joining us from her home in the Indian Himalayas, Susan Griffith-Jones will explain both the meaning of ‘The Magician’s Jewel’ as it has revealed itself to her so far.

WATCH THE REPLAY of this talk held live on February 2: Qi is a Life Force Energy which is high at birth and declines with age. Qigong and tai chi practitioners work with qi and understand the benefits of it. People have not been able to measure and study qi in a practical way or how one can know if their practice has increased their level of qi. Through some unique studies, I have learned that qi forms a field and the field develops domains of subtle energy which one can detect and study.

conceptual foundations of our work


The fundamental identity is our spiritual identity, “I AM."

When the understanding and embrace of I AM becomes the unifying thread of both science and spirituality, then humanity will reach a new stage in evolution. With the realization of who we really are, humanity will advance. Humans will create with the concept of harmony, balance, and love as the core principles of who we are. We will truly understand our connectedness. ~ Jerry Gin, FMBR Chairman, Author of “Science, Subtle Energies, and Spirituality: A Path to I AM.”

Video: Activating our Nonlocal Awareness

Russell Targ and his team, including the great natural psychic Ingo Swann, at the Stanford Research Institute clearly discovered in the 1970s the ability of the mind to see around the world. Essentially through “remote viewing” techniques, human beings clearly possess the ability to perceive beyond their present time-space locality.

Video: Our Tiniest Near-Death Experiencers–Startling Evidence of A Brain Shift

PMH Atwater | January 27, 2023 | Not enough attention has been paid to the youngest near-death experiencers: those still in the womb, newborns, infants, toddlers, and those under the age of six. We are fascinated with out-of-the-mouth-of-babes stories, yet we fail to examine the aftereffects they contend with and why professional therapists are unable to understand or relate to them.

The Science of BioGeometry

Jerry Gin, PhD of FMBR

Per Dr. Karim, the definition of BioGeometry is: “The science of establishing harmony in energy quality exchange between biological fields and their environment, through the use of a design language of form, color, motion and sound.” It is the resulting subtle energy harmony, which brings about the healing qualities of BioGeometry.

New Physics: Theories on the Nature of the Universe and Consciousness

Overview by Jerry Gin of FMBR

In recent years, there have been a number of theorists who have provided us with alternative physics theories to view matter, energy, the nature of the universe and consciousness. The new theories attempt to bring together many of the inconsistencies current theories are unable to explain.
