Dr. John Hagelin
World-renowned quantum physicist, educator, public policy expert, and leading proponent of peace

Dr. Hagelin received his A.B. summa cum laude from Dartmouth College and his M.A. and Ph.D. from Harvard University, and conducted pioneering research at CERN (the European Center for Particle Physics) and SLAC (the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center). His scientific contributions in the fields of electroweak unification, grand unification, super-symmetry and cosmology include some of the most cited references in the physical sciences. He is also responsible for the development of a highly successful Grand Unified Field Theory based on the Superstring. Dr. Hagelin is at the pinnacle of achievement among the elite cadre of physicists who have fulfilled Einstein’s dream of a “theory of everything” through their mathematical formulation of the Unified Field—the most advanced scientific knowledge of our time.

Dr. Hagelin is unique among scientists in being the first to apply this most advanced knowledge for the practical benefit of humankind. In his talks, he speaks on pioneering the use of Unified Field-based technologies that are proven to reduce crime, violence, terrorism, and war and to promote peace throughout society—technologies derived from the ancient Vedic science of consciousness. He has published groundbreaking research establishing the existence of long-range “field effects” of consciousness generated through collective meditation, and has shown that large meditating groups can effectively defuse acute societal stress—thereby preventing violence and social conflict, and providing a practical foundation for permanent world peace.

For the last quarter century, Dr. Hagelin has led an international investigation into the nature and origin of consciousness, including higher states of human consciousness. In his seminal book, Manual for a Perfect Government, Dr. Hagelin shows how, through educational programs that develop human consciousness, and through policies and programs that effectively harness the laws of nature, it is possible to solve and to prevent acute social problems, and to profoundly enhance governmental achievements.

Winner of the Kilby Award

In recognition of his outstanding achievements, Dr. Hagelin was named winner of the prestigious Kilby Award, which recognizes scientists who have made “major contributions to society through their applied research in the fields of science and technology.” The award recognized Dr. Hagelin as “a scientist in the tradition of Einstein, Jeans, Bohr and Eddington.”

“I think this research evidence on a new approach to peace, and the theory that informs it, deserve the most serious consideration by academics, policy makers and concerned citizens alike.”

Professor of Government
University of Texas (Austin)
    Director of the Institute of Science, Technology and Public Policy

Dr. Hagelin is currently Director of the Institute of Science, Technology and Public Policy, a leading science and technology think tank at Maharishi University of Management, USA, and Minister of Science and Technology of the Global Country of World Peace.

Director of the Global Union of Scientists for Peace (GUSP)

He is the International Director of the Global Union of Scientists for Peace (GUSP), an organization of leading scientists throughout the world dedicated to ending nuclear proliferation and establishing lasting world peace. The president of the Global Union, Dr Pachauri, is Chairman of the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel for Climate Change (IPCC), and together with former U.S. vice-president Al Gore, was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007 in honor of their rigorous and extensive research on global warming. Dr. Pachauri first met with Dr. Hagelin in New Delhi in January 2006, during the inaugural conference of GUSP, and since that time these two leaders have exchanged many ideas and research findings about how best to end the proliferation of nuclear arms and create lasting peace on earth.

President of the United States Peace Government

Dr. Hagelin also serves as President of the United States Peace Government, a knowledge-based, complementary government composed of hundreds of America’s top scientists, which advocates proven, prevention-oriented solutions to critical social problems; and Minister of Science and Technology of the Global Country of World Peace, an international organization dedicated to prevention-oriented government, world peace, and global administration through natural law.

Stress-Free Schools

Dr. Hagelin has been working closely with Academy Award-nominated filmmaker David Lynch and the David Lynch Foundation to organize and oversee the implementation of new Consciousness-Based educational programs in schools across America to create stress-free schools. Under their guidance, a renowned panel of educators and scientists visited over 40 cities in the U.S. and Canada and 26 European cities speaking to thousands of principals, superintendents, teachers, school board members, and local government leaders about Consciousness-Based education and its proven impact on student development and educational outcomes. These tours created a huge demand for the Transcendental Meditation (TM) program in high schools and middle schools. In published research studies, TM has been found to reduce stress and improve grades and self-esteem.
