An experiment in Washington DC to study the effect of a large group of meditators on social trends, saw a rapid reversal in the violent crime trend during the project period.

The researchers, led by John Hagelina renowned quantum physicist, set up this major prospective social study. The idea was to show how easy and simple it is to reduce crime and social stress by using meditation to intervene from the field of consciousness.

The maximum impact was an unprecedented drop in HRA crime of 23.3%*. This maximum effect occurred when the size of the group was at its largest in the final phase of the project.

Also, as predicted by the researchers before the project, there was a range of other improvements during the study period:

•    Emergency psychiatric calls decreased
•    Hospital trauma cases decreased
•    Complaints against the police decreased
•    Accidental deaths decreased 
•    Quality of life index improved
