Fund a Consciousness Research Lab

We are asking for your support to build a high tech research center using state of the art equipment like:

-Deep brain imaging and mapping hardware /software.
-Sensory deprivation chambers (floatation tanks)
-Audio/Visual stimulation technology
-Bio-feedback equipment
-Neuro-feedback equipment 

We will use this center for research, therapy, education and exploration.


We aim to continue and advance the research that is presently taking place in the realm of 'psychedelic science', which has become a significant field of enquiry in the States and beyond, since Rick Strassmans famous DMT studies in the 1990's.

Our center will be based in Peru, where we have full access to a variety of government sanctioned healing plants and entheogenic medicines. Here plants and entheogenic medicines that are illegal in nearly every other part of the world, have full legal and national heritage status.  We can therefore freely conduct  and further this research without  legal, political, and beurocratic restriction. 

We also wish to continue research into mind/brain and deep brain states free of any plant or medicine use, for the purposes of modelling therapetic protocols for the healing of all kinds of neurodegenerative disorders, psychological problems etc,  and to create maps and topographies of the mind and brain in order to recognize what states of cohesion and wholism look like. This will enable educational protocols to be developed that can guide one easily into these healthy and wholistic brain states.


Utilizing a combination of the essential hardware and software will enable us to develop new and exciting experimental protocols for the healing of all kinds of brain/ mind problems, ranging from PTSD and depression, to autism and neurodegenerative disorders. The ability to clearly see inside the brain and to receive instant feedback in various forms provides both patient and therapist with obvious and immediate results.


We hope to develop a variety of protocols for the healing of various forms of brain/mind disfuntion, and to make these studies available for use by other such centers and enquiring therapists. We hope to produce papers of a scientic rigour and standing, to be published in peer reviewed journals and other acedemic works.

We also wish to teach and train others in the use of this equipment and protocols, and to devlop educational packages that teach people how to reach different brain/mind states- eg 'peak-states', meditative states, integral mind states, 'flow', etc.


Utilizing entheogenic medicines with the most advanced tools of brain/mind/consciousness research, will allow us to explore the full range of human potential and possibility in a way never before experienced. We feel that whilst these technlogies have been explored seperately, no one has as yet combined these various modalities to really explore the full spectrum and dimensions of human consciousness. This is our aim.

Who will Benefit:

Humanity at large

The funds will be used to purchase all essential hardware and equipment, from float tanks and brain reading headgear, through to audio-visual stimulation technology, plants, medicines and all essential software.

 We would like to be running an active center by mid 2018. Our wish is to be producing viable alternatives to western pharmaceuticals, and producing universally applicable protocols for healing, education and spiritual advancement.

Our head researcher Paul is a trained shaman, in the Peruvian Ayahuasca tradition, the Mongolian Buryat tradition, The Nepalese Jhankri tradition, and others.
He is also a Western trained academic, with an M.A in the 'Study of Mysticism and Religous Experience', as well as degrees in 'Chinese Medicine', and 'Humanities'. He is  also a fully trained acupunturist, qi gong instructor and yoga therapist. This places him in a unique position to be able to utilise thse applications safely and effectively, as well as bridging spirtual and scientific understandings in a harmonious and effective manner.
