Following a sudden non-dual experience one morning in February 2016, Jessica Corneille
decided to change the course of her life by quitting her career in the
arts/cultural heritage preservation (and as an aspiring art curator), to play her part, instead, in helping to de-stigmatise, de-pathologise and raise awareness around spiritual awakening, enlightenment, and non-dual experiences within mainstream psychology.
She graduated with Distinction from a Masters Degree in Psychology from the University of Greenwich, where she focused her studies on “exceptional human experiences” (transpersonal, anomalistic and parapsychology), and is now a qualified research psychologist, focussing predominantly on awakening experiences of a spontaneous nature. Jessica has presented her work at a number of academic conferences, including with the British Psychological Society. She is the Communications Coordinator for the Scientific and Medical Network, a collaborator of the Emergent Phenomenology Research Consortium and Spiritual Crisis Network, runs support-groups for people undergoing spiritually transformative experiences, and is a Kundalini Yoga teacher, holding regular classes in London.
Her greatest missions in life are both to challenge the default pathologisation of awakening experiences by helping to inform and encourage mainstream psychology to look beyond the current designated spectrum of ‘normality’, to encompass the transpersonal as something that is intrinsic to the human experience, and in helping individuals come to the realisation of their highest human potential.
