an independent organization, the Windbridge Institute
is able to perform scientifically rigorous investigations
and foster extensive peer review without being susceptible
to either large overhead costs or biases based in
conventional scientific paradigms. This flexibility
allows us to make and report important discoveries
the inception of the Windbridge Institute in early 2008,
we have completed a number
of research studies adding to our understanding of
the potential that exists within our bodies, minds, and
spirits. Many more are in progress or being planned.
mediumship and the survival of consciousness are the primary
research interests at the Windbridge Institute. Even after
a century of research in these fields, many questions
remain unanswered making further investigation important
for several reasons:
survival of consciousness is an issue of vital interest
to the public.
gained about the mediumship process may aid in understanding
how humans process non-local, non-sensory information.
and mediumship studies provide unique evidence for discovering
the relationship between the mind/consciousness and
the brain. That is, 1) does the brain act locally to
transform consciousness which exists independently of
the body and continues to survive even after death or
2) is consciousness a product of the brain's cells and
synapses which dies with the brain?
the accuracy and reliability of information reported
by mediums may have important and practical social applications
in a wide range of areas including grief therapy and
psychological recovery from loss, the alleviation of
anxiety surrounding transition (hospice care), assistance
in finding missing persons and investigating crimes,
and possibly the acquisition of knowledge benefiting
scientific, technological, and social progress (for
example, in ecology, medicine, spirituality, politics,
engineering, astronomy, agriculture, physics, etc.).
this time, mediumship data collectively support the conclusion
that certain mediums can report specific and accurate
information about a deceased person under blinded conditions,
in the absence of any feedback, and without using fraud
or deception (a phenomenon called anomalous information
reception or AIR). The source of the information and the
details of the mediumship process, however, are still
not clear. For example, we still do not know:
mediums get their information telepathically/psychically
or are they actually communicating with the deceased?
a medium's neurophysiology different than a non-medium's?
participating in a mediumship reading help in the grief
mediumship be taught/learned?
is the afterlife like?
addition, controlled research involving communication
with the deceased without the aid of mediums is just beginning.
measurable changes occur in the environment when a discarnate
any measurable changes be translated into technologies
allowing the deceased to communicate with us?
and similar questions can only be answered with further
to the controversial nature of the survival and mediumship
research performed at the Windbridge Institute, we cannot
apply for government grants or the vast majority of private
grants to support our studies. As such, our research
is heavily supported by memberships and private donors.
as an independent organization, the Windbridge Institute
is not susceptible to the barriers to progress to which
larger organizations often fall victim. For example,
at institutions the size of major research universities
as much as 40% of donations go to overhead costs rather
than to research and changes to scientific protocols may
take several months to be approved. In addition, the content,
direction, and scope of research at other institutions
are often restricted by the biases of larger parent or
the Windbridge Institute, the obstacles encountered by
larger institutions have been removed and we are able
to make and report important discoveries quickly. Furthermore,
our decisions regarding which studies to perform are made
solely on the basis of answering the questions that will
contribute most to the field of knowledge and will best
serve all living things.
