A scientist's quest for enlightenment
27 June 2017 - Renowned researcher David Orme-Johnson, PhD, shares his personal journey toward uncovering the science of higher states of consciousness. From an early age he sought to learn more about a state of transcendental bliss he had read about, and briefly glimpsed. This led to the study of philosophy, a doctoral degree in psychology, and to Transcendental Meditation. Learning the technique in 1970, Dr Orme-Johnson experienced 'an amazing sense of being at home with myself. And I was utterly calm when I came out. . . . I learned there was a name for the unbounded awareness I had experienced as a child: Transcendental Consciousness. . . . Now I had regular access to it through my TM practice.' Dr Orme-Johnson made substantial contributions to the new, rapidly developing field of research on the physiological correlates of this state and its beneficial effects in human life - 'a global scientific exploration of enlightenment'.
