Frequently Asked Questions

GENERAL

Who is InnerScience Research Fund and what do you do?

InnerScience Research Fund is a nonprofit organization founded in January 2022. Our Mission is funding research on the biological and physiological effects of meditation on the human body.

 Currently, we are funding analysis of the data from groundbreaking research at Dr. Joe Dispenza’s meditation retreats, led by a team of researchers from UC, San Diego. It is their aim to document the science behind the body’s innate ability to heal using the power of meditation and to publish their findings in esteemed, peer-reviewed medical journals.

We believe everyone deserves to know they have the power within to heal and thrive, and our Vision is a world where meditation is an integral part of the standard of (health)care in preventing and treating illness and disease. We want doctors and health practitioners across the globe to be prescribing meditation, and the only way to accomplish this is by providing sound, scientific evidence that meditation heals, because evidence IS the loudest voice.

We have a collection of 2-3 minute videos to showcase who we are and the science we support. Other short videos include stories of transformation and words directly from our supporters. Please find the links below:
