Global Peace Initiative: Investigating the effects

Global Peace Initiative    Translate This Article
26 November 2011

To promote broader acceptance and support within the scientific, public policy, and philanthropic communities, Global Peace Initiative is supporting large-scale, independent, rigorous research on the crime-reducing, peace-promoting impact of this Brain-Based Approach, as well as cutting-edge research on the fundamental physical, neurophysiological and sociological mechanisms that underlie these far-reaching societal effects.

In addition to the reductions in crime and social violence found previously, we anticipate, and will investigate, broader evidence of reduced stress in non-meditating subjects in the vicinity of the peace-promoting groups, including:

∙ increased serotonin
∙ increased alpha EEG coherence
∙ reduced plasma cortisol ('stress hormone')
∙ reduced stress-related illness
∙ reduced alcohol and drug abuse
∙ reduced psychiatric crisis calls
∙ reduced emergency room admissions
∙ reduced other established indicators of societal stress
