He’s spent the last decade conducting the largest international study on persistent non-symbolic experience (PNSE), which includes the types of consciousness commonly known as: enlightenment, nonduality, the peace the passeth understanding, transcendental consciousness, unitive experience, and hundreds of others. More recently, he has used this research to make systems available to help people obtain profound psychological benefits in a rapid, secular, reliable, and safe way.

His research began with over 1,000 individuals who claimed to experience PNSE. This resulted in a reliable, cross-cultural and pan-tradition classification system for these types experience. Jeffery’s current work involves helping people use what’s been learned to make the life-changing transformation into PNSE. His most recent study achieved strong validation, with over 70% of participants reaching ongoing non-symbolic experience in less than 4 months. His interest in Transformative Technology comes from a belief that findings like his can be translated into mass consumer technologies and affect billions of lives worldwide. Since 2008 he has worked to bring together the stakeholders from academia, technology, business, finance, and public policy to create a sustainable technology space that dramatically improves human well-being.

His work has regularly been featured at leading academic conferences worldwide, as well as major public forums such as Deepak Chopra’s Sages and Scientists Symposiums, Wisdom 2.0, the Science and Nonduality Conference, the Asia Consciousness Festival, and TEDx. He has been covered in media as diverse as Fast Company, the South China Morning Post, and PBS’s Closer to Truth, and been an invited speaker at many leading universities including: Harvard, Yale, Stanford, University of California, University of London, Hong Kong Polytechnic University, and the National University of Singapore.

Jeffery’s academic work lies at the intersection of technology, psychology, cognitive science, neuroscience, and transformative studies. His research on non-symbolic consciousness began while he was a graduate student in Transformative Studies at CIIS and Psychology at Harvard. He is the Founding Director of the Center or the Study of Non-Symbolic Consciousness and a Research Professor and Director of the Transformative Technology Lab at Sofia University.

Embracing Uncertainty ~ Adyashanti

Published on Jan 26, 2017

Adyashanti explores how the feeling of uncertainty can have the tendency to cause unbalance and unease. By delving into your own exploration of uncertainty with an open heart and mind, you can find a quietness from which everything arises. This quietness is fertile ground for awakening and bringing your long-dormant capacities online. Adyashanti invites you to embrace uncertainty and the deep knowing that can arise from it.

Video Excerpted From “The Freedom of Not Knowing”:

Quotes from this Video:

“Sometimes to the ego mind, letting go of certainty can feel like a kind of defeat, even though it’s not really.”

“Everything is connected up—there isn’t this thing called the heart and this thing called the mind—they’re all connected. It’s one. It’s part of one massive happening, one organism.”

“As our mind opens, our heart opens. And as our heart opens, our mind opens. And so it goes.”

“The more uncertain you are, the more quiet you become.”

“Spiritual awakening itself is actually awakening or bringing online a capacity that lies dormant within us.”
