Current Research

These are some of the research projects I am working on:

Large Scale Reiki Study
Together with the Center for Reiki Research, I am investigating the effectiveness of Reiki energy medicine on a variety of outcome variables, including stress, depression, anxiety, and pain.
Note: This study is now closed and published here. Thank you to all who participated!
We will also be publishing our qualitative findings in 2020, stay tuned!

The Universal Love Project
Universal love is unconditional love for all of existence and it has yet to be studied scientifically. This research aims to test the effectiveness of a mind-body practice to cultivate universal love. The physiological correlates of universal love and its benefits to health and immune function are also being investigated. This project is a collaboration between the University of New York at Prague (Dr. Butzer) and the University of Arizona (Drs. Beauregard & Schwartz).

Kripalu Impact Research Study
Together with the Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health and Harvard Medical School, I am investigating the impact of Kripalu’s yoga-based RISE program on psychological health and health behaviors in frontline professionals.

Subjective Effects of Salvia Divinorum
The study consists of completing online questionnaires related to one’s experience with taking salvia.
Note: This study is now closed. Thank you to all who participated. Stay tuned for the results!
