The Spiritual Transformation Scientific Research Program
is intended to promote new, better-integrated
research into the nature of spiritual transformation and to develop
a network of active investigators in this field. In this section,
you will find a literature review
of past scientific research on the nature of spiritual transformation.
In addition, you will also find a list of references of pertinent
articles and books that have been written on the subject matter.
Where possible, the list of references
features links to Amazon or PubMed with more information on the
book or article. We will regularly update the references list to
make it as up-to-date and comprehensive as possible.
The research conference on October 5-7, 2002 will
generate papers and articles that will help to guide the methodological
and substantive potential of scientific research into the nature
of spiritual transformation. As a result of the research conference,
we anticipate the creation of articles and white papers for the
various avenues of research into this subject matter. In the future,
we plan to include those papers and any other products of the research
conference in this section of the Web site as well.
