What We Accomplished in the Last Five Years

This September we held our 19th and final Advanced Workshop, marking the end of almost five years of scientific testing. Of the 700+ students in attendance at Indian Wells Resort in Palm Springs, California, 82% were first time participants. The group was excited, enthusiastic, willing, and coherent. As a result, the energy we recorded in the room broke all records of our previous workshop measurements. In addition, according to our Sputnik measurements, this particular group’s pineal gland meditation was one of the best ever.

As usual, we had volunteer students—interested in furthering scientific discovery—connected to heart-rate-variability monitors to measure heart coherence. We also measured the energy around people’s bodies before and after the event using GVD readings. One of the most notable aspects of the event was how the energy in the room grew after every meditation. This was unique because usually the group energy dips at various points throughout the four days. At the end of each day, we showed our students how the energy they contributed to the field continued to rise—energy that was available to heal bodies, create futures, and manifest mystical experiences.

On the last day of the event we recorded our highest room measurements ever. The previous record was from Bonn, Germany with a group of 1550 people. The fact that we had more energy in the room at the end of the Indian Wells than in Bonn, Germany is fascinating because it means there was more energy in the room with less than half the people. In other words, we had half the matter and twice the energy, or to say it yet another way—half the particles and twice the intensity of the wave function. This is a good indicator that these people were connected and emitting and contributing energy to the field. In addition, the energy in the room continued to rise when our students were doing the walking meditations at a considerable distance from the room. As they walked as their future selves in another location, both days we practiced the walking meditation the energy in the room rose higher than what was recorded at our first meditation of the event. Think about that. This suggests that as our students were walking at a significant distance from the ballroom, the location where they were the previous day was being affected. Is it possible then that what they were doing would affect where they were (the past), where they are (the present), and where they will be (their future)? This portends to the fact that when you change your energy, you affect all aspects of your life.


Together, We’ve Made Scientific History

When we began our Advanced Workshop in 2013, we wanted to see if we could quantitatively measure transformation. We did this by performing pre and post-studies on the brain to determine if after four days of training, we could objectively measure that changes were happening not just in a person’s mind, but in their brain. We also sought to measure levels of coherence (both in the brain and the heart), the way certain areas of the brain communicate with each other, and what happens during the meditative process when people overcome themselves and really connect to the unified field. We measured the amount of energy a person came to the event with and how that had changed when they left. We were able to record, measure, and demonstrate how a person could influence their energy centers by affecting their autonomic nervous system. Finally, in years past, before we began taking measurements, people would often say the energy in the room was incredibly high, so we wanted to see if that is actually true. Turns out it is.

Other things we wanted to explore was to see if a person could sustain heart coherence for an extended period of time. Could our students regulate internal states independent of conditions in their environment—and thus make it a skill? We also wanted to measure genetic changes, neurotransmitters, protein expression (as a result of genetic changes), and hormonal changes.

I’m pleased to say we did all these things with greater results than we could ever have imagined. As a consequence, we made scientific history, the results of which are compiled in my new book Becoming Supernatural: How Common People Are Doing the Uncommon, due out at the end of October. When we began our measurements, I never thought we would see the kind of measurements we recorded—measurements that are so profoundly outside of natural and normal—but measurements that prove we all have the ability to be supernatural.

The transition of 2017 to 2018 marks the end of a cycle and the beginning of a new one. While we’ll still be performing some scientific measurements, the format of our workshops will become week long retreats. Why? Because at the end of a few days, when people are just starting to break through, they have to go home. So I thought—what will happen if we give them a little more time to retreat from their lives so they can really create a new future and really become supernatural?

I suspect we’ll be making more scientific history, but at a much more grand and personal level for our students. Our students will no longer be studying history—they’ll be making history.

    With all these breakthroughs and findings, why don’t you publish it in a scientific journal to make public aware, as well as make it more credible than publishing it in your own book??

    Indian Wells was my first Advanced and it truly was a mystical and healing Workshop! The energy was so high that you didn’t need to sleep and you didn’t even miss not sleeping! Thank you Dr Joe Dispenza for being such and amaxing teacher/healer, and truly leading by example! This experience has truly changed my past, present and future self.

    I had the opportunity to participate in advanced workshops and I was a volunteer for brain mapping and having a report of my brain activity before the event, during meditations and at the end of the Advanced Workshop. What I learned from my brain activity changed my life forever. I did the Brain Mapping and Neurofeedback certification with Quantum Business. I create Staytuned App for neurofeedback with music frequencies and brain waves. I am living a deep process of change, taking new adventures and learning to live at the unknown. Thanks Dr.Joe. You inspired me in many ways. New me has been successfully installed!

    I am so grateful to have been in my first and the last advanced workshop. I have encountered a huge internal shift. I am being called into deeper states of meditation and awareness. I also feel it opening a new future possibility for quantum healing work. A fun surprise: On the final day of the event ( with the pineal activation meditation) I was lying in bed, finally done chatting with my roommate after a long 5 days. I happened to look at the ceiling for a moment with the lights out. I had to take a second look. I do sometimes see a crystalline energy pattern in heightened states ( when the lights are low )… yet I have never seen such a huge thick light field. As late as it was I literally had to lie there for another hour … mesmerized …by the dancing geometric energy soup emanating from the entire ceiling. Haha, I love that stuff. So yes to waking up the pineal gland. Yes to passionately coming together and Yes to the deepening of our journey… in this incredible quantum field we know as life. Feeling blessed to experience Joe’s passion and the indelible love of our group, that exist on the timeline of NOW.

    I love the finding that when you change your energy, you affect the past. present and future… that time is spatial and not linear… and that the energy effects cross not only time zones but also spatial zones. I’m looking forward to the week-long retreats!

    Dr. Joe your work has been an important part of my daily routine since 2014. During this time my life has changed immeasurably in every way possible. I am able to serve in ways I dreamed and beyond – – you will remember that we met in Paris in the spring of 2016, and I told you about my elephant friends. Amazing synchronicities continue almost daily for me, opening door after door. And needless to say I am happier and healthier than ever.
    I am ever so grateful for the work you have done for all of us, and can’t wait to read the new book.
    Carry on my friend. I’m proud to be a student of yours.

    Seriously, this work is epic on so many levels! The beauty, is that the common are becoming uncommon; supernatural, if you will! One doesn’t need to have a PhD or any kind of degree for that matter. One just needs to have the sincere desire, the commitment and the tools/teachings of this amazing work to create the life they want and to bring their future straight to them. You want to be healthy? Done. You want to manifest greatness in your career? Check. How about abundance? Boom.
    My whole life has changed in the last almost 4 years of doing this work. I will never go back to business as usual. I’m already Supernatural and I’m unstoppable!

    I will never NEVER EVER forget – Chicago – and then INDIAN WELLS! The Saturday morning walking meditation started with the sky beautiful and Venus glowing. THEN I start to walk, in perfect state, deliberately. Then at the top of the little hill, there you are Joe, lovingly peering out over the hundreds of us. I lose it totally. I look you in the eye sobbing and I blubber, “I love you, man.” And then, “I love all these people.” You didn’t miss a beat. I quickly received the loving reply of a quiet hug. Imagine! I blubbered on the shoulder of Joe Dispenza and got hugged!!!

    My life has been transformed from these events, and I know I have found a community that I really belong to. Thank you Joe, thank you for this work you have done.

      Hello Cathy,

      I want to know more of what changes, if any, had occurred for you at the Indian Wells retreat? I am eager to attend the advance class, although now it looks like Dr. Dispenza is coming up with a week long retreat.
      Your experience is helpful. Thank you

        hello Asha… please forgive the delay in my response. Well, what changes… during the event we were privileged to be guided through powerful healing meditations. The energy in the room was conducive to healing … we understood this because Dr. Joe had ongoing measuring of the energy in the room – as it turned out – our 750 souls attained a much higher level of energy than 1500 in Bon Germany… the energy was electric. Both myself and my new-to-me partner had very personal, mystical experiences. (As directed from Dr. Joe – we picked a partner from the room that we hadn’t met yet) Attending the Advanced Workshop is truly an investment in yourself… I feel that way) Down the road now some weeks I have had many experiences of the Divine occurrences. To be specific I can easily, comfortably and have FUN Public speaking – which I do from time to time with my work – in the past with difficulty. Now this isn’t something I strived to change – this is the Divine treating me to a personal experience that for me was Awwwww and Surprise… so of course, it got my attention. ‘My Divine’ continues to happen more and more with delightful results… So Yes, if you possibly can swing it… attend workshops, or live-streaming, enjoy tele-classes, join a Dr. Joe facebook page… grow and grow and grow some more – Best of luck my friend! love cath

    -I too was fortunate enough to be present at that historic Indian Wells last Advanced conference.
    -I am grateful to Dr Joe, as on that last day of the last Advanced, he took us through a Healing session with partners.
    -The incredible energy in the room, with Dr Joe’s guidance led to the healing of my psoriasis that started after the session; still gone) and my Healing workshop partner, attending the conference from Maui’i, has reported to me that her chronic neck pain has disappeared and remains gone .
    -Blessings and thanks to ypu, Dr Joe, for being a leader in changing the world into the Fifth Dimension.

    This is so so super cool, because I always knew from a young age that we were more and could do more than what we were being told at school, and from society ect. And all the trouble and growlings that I had because of my so called ‘naughtyness and wild imagintion’ were really just lack of knowledge and understanding from others and myself from that era. Yaa the truth is, I always knew that there was something more profound about us human beings. I just couldent put it into words :). All this work that you have embarked on and done is amazing and I know that much grattude is geneated because of this effort. I so look forword to the work shops comming to New Zealands this really excites me and I look forword to attending the next workshop in perth and becoming a regersiterd practitoner. Yes yes yes

    I just love all of your scientific exercises and discoveries. Fabulous feeling, to create awareness in people of the gifts they were born with and like children watch them discover and learn how to use them. Your articles hint to the Ancients, my interest, which I am now starting to see parallels with your modern day work.
    With your new 7 day courses, the time frame ties in with the Ancient ceremonies. The Ancients started days before “tuning” the people, for the ceremonies for healing. By meditating in groups, praying, ingesting minerals to fuel their bodies, for their electrolytes. They were all focusing on a OM or chant, (to obtain a common frequency) baseline, as to build a common energy for their healing rituals to start at. I believe that the final targeted healing frequency was 7.83 Schumann, our bodies harmonizing frequency and their reset button with the earth. I wondered if your science has seen this…?

    And I wondered if your science equipment shows that there are more than Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta, Theta, waves? I think science is
    holding back, tip of the iceberg. ….to eternity and beyond, as Buzz Lightyear used to say….

    I will start saving my pesos, and try to get to one of your 7 day seminars,

    Love your work, regards.

    Look forward to our advanced follow up in Cabos and to see many friends and meet new ones…and of course look forward to the new week long retreats in the new format.

    Imagine what would happen if the collective mind of all human beings would change and evolve in accordance to Dr Joe’s work? I firmly believe that this is the next step in human evolution. This knowledge is a gift and shouldn’t only be available for grown ups. Imagine how our next generation would turn out if they grow up implementing Dr Joe’s methods… Would be a lot of fun to see kids workshops in the future 🙂
