Science relating to Oneness

Scientific evidence for Oneness teachings

Western community has other standards when it comes to objective evidence. This page hopes to list supporting indications - or contraindications, to teachings within the Oneness Community.

Observing what is

A central Oneness teaching is to merely stay with "what is" and observe it. In fact, Bhagavan has said this is the most important teaching once someone is 'awakened' (a particular state, central within Oneness).

Supporting indications
When we remember something, the memory turns unstable. Another process later restabilizes the memory. But, if while the memory is unstable, the memory is triggered once again, the process of restabilizing the memory is interrupted and fear will dissipate.
While this may not be exactly what happens, it certainly reminiscent of what Oneness teaches about 'charges' and merely observing, letting memories be triggered.

Ananda Mandala

Ananda Mandala is very much inspired by yogic breathing techniques.

  • Link to a study on the effects of a yoga breath intervention alone and in combination with an exposure therapy for post-traumatic stress disorder and depression in survivors of the 2004 South-East Asia tsunami

Yantra Eye Movement

When watching a Yantra image, specific instructions are given on how to follow the patterns with your eyes. It seems to have a connection to eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR).
