The Foundation for Mind-Being Research (FMBR) was established in 1980 to assist in the creation of integrated models of human consciousness, models that encompass the physical, mental and spiritual aspects of the human experience. The objective was to bring the then-new field of consciousness studies into wider recognition as a bona fide field of science, and to explore whether consciousness arises out of physical matter (i.e., the brain) or whether it is a state of matter unto itself.

As growing numbers of theoretical physicists conclude that consciousness exists independent of matter, we at FMBR are working to explore the implications of such findings, for individuals and for our society as a whole. We believe that science can be instrumental in helping to change the current dominant worldview from one of separation, scarcity and competition, to one of connectedness, partnership and synergy.
