This study looks at interpersonal coupling or connectivity between healer and subject pairs using advanced signal processing approaches and in- stantaneous EEG phase coupling. Paired recordings of the healer and subject were done both with the subject at a distance and in the proximity of the heal- er. The EEG data were analyzed for cross-spectral coupling using the bispec- trum, as well as the more traditional Fourier-based spectral analysis and EEG waveform analysis looking at phase. The…

STUDY OF BODY’S ENERGY CHANGES IN NON-TOUCH ENERGY HEALING 3. SYNCHRONOUS CHANGES IN QI-ENERGY LEVELS BETWEEN HEALER AND SUBJECT DURING HYPNOTHERAPY HEALING
TLDR
It was found that synchronous changes, positive or negative in correlation, occurred sporadically in varying degrees of correlation and magnitude during the period of healing and subsequent control.
STRUCTURAL ACOUSTIC COUPLING RESONANCE OF HINDU TEMPLES
Some ancient constructions over the world exhibit acoustic resonance chambers [1, 7]. Acoustic resonance of Pyramids [1], Stupas [2,6,7], Cathedrals [3,4,12] and Mosques [5] have been studied and
EcoMeditation and Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) Produce Elevated Brain-wave Patterns and States of Consciousness
Background Stress-reduction techniques can be used in combination with each other. Two such methods are Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) and EcoMeditation. EFT is an evidence-based self-help
Questioning the Importance of Conscious Awareness in Alternative Healing
TLDR
Volunteer healers, who have included both students and faculty, have all been pre-screened to be without any experience in alternative healing, nor were they in any way “believers” in the validity of alternative healing.

Characteristics of spiritual and psychic healing interactions involve empathy, compassion, person-centered care and love (Dossey, 1994; Jonas & Crawford, 2003), terms that describe the way in which
Introducing Real-Time Indeterminate Synthetic Music Feedback (RT-ISMF) as a Therapeutic Intervention Method
Started in 2007, partly unpublished artistic research has resulted in the development of a Psi-related collection of methods and instruments, which features possible applications in healing and
Some Reflections on Consciousness, Intention, and Healing
Ÿ Consciousness is inherently linked to the biological process of life itself Ÿ If consciousness-related anomalies indeed prove to arise from an unconscious biological source, one would assume that
HeartMath: a positive psychology paradigm for promoting psychophysiological and global coherence
This article proposes HeartMath as a positive psychology paradigm for promoting psychophysiological and global coherence . It provides evidence for the value of psychophysiological and global
Examining Biological and Physical Correlates to Anomalous Healing
A phenomenon is considered to be scientifically “anomalous” if it does not fit into the mainstream understanding of how the world is thought to work. That does not mean that the phenomenon is not
Transcriptional Changes in Cancer Cells Induced by Exposure to a Healing Method
TLDR
To assess whether stored or recorded energy has an impact on breast cancer cells in vitro, using energy-charged cotton and electromagnetic recording of healers practicing the method was assessed.

TLDR
Under certain conditions, the EEG of a sensorially isolated human subject can become correlated with event-related potentials in a distant person's EEG, which suggests the presence of an unknown form of energetic or informational interaction.
Electroencephalographic evidence of correlated event-related signals between the brains of spatially and sensory isolated human subjects.
TLDR
These results indicate that in some pairs of human subjects a signal may be detected in the brain of a distant member of the pair when thebrain of the other member is visually stimulated.
Evidence of correlated functional magnetic resonance imaging signals between distant human brains.
TLDR
The Bastyr University/University of Washington Consciousness Science Laboratory research group developed sophisticated electroencephalographic (EEG) technology and statistical signal detection methods to replicate findings of correlated metabolic brain signals detected between 2 human subjects separated from each other by 10 meters.

TLDR
It is suggested that resonant bond formation may be a widely occurring, yet not recognized, phenomenon and researchers in all fields are challenged to reexamine their data through the prism of resonant bonding.
Resonance, placebo effects, and Type II errors: some implications from healing research for experimental methods.
TLDR
A recently completed experiment at the Terre Haute campus of the Indiana University School of Medicine has produced a successful test of resonance theory, which posit the formation of "resonant bonds," which can link spatially separate groups.
