The following is a report on the first FMBR "Working Meeting" to explore the frontiers between science, the paranormal, and spirituality. The meeting was held in 1980 and its report was selected as a key information source by a congressional committee. The Committee on Science and Technology of the U.S. House of Representatives issued a two year "Survey of Science and Technology Issues -- Present and Future," For the first time, "research on the Physics of Consciousness (parapsychology)" was included as a major issue.

In subsequent years FMBR held a series of such "Working Meetings" on topics related to the evolution of consciousness studies.
