Capturing the data of transformation.

We’re here to facilitate a deeper understanding of the mind-body connection, ultimately empowering people to lead healthier, more fulfilling lives.

About Metamorphosis

At Metamorphosis, through our ongoing research, we capture the data of personal change and transformation. By conducting scientific investigations into the effects of meditation, we’re furthering a deeper understanding of the mind-body connection. And, in doing so, we’re encouraging people to unlock their full potential – and lead healthier, more fulfilling lives

Through our groundbreaking research at retreats around the world, we’re measuring the ways common people do the uncommon. We collect and curate a wide range of personal and biological data, as well as physiological readouts. Using these and other tools, we gather valuable insights into the effects of meditation on human biology.

More than a decade ago, Dr Joe Dispenza founded and funded Metamorphosis to support his scientific research and exploration. Today, that effort has become a comprehensive repository of data that demonstrates valuable insights into human health and behavior. Our community members have long asked how they can access and integrate the information and analysis from our findings – and apply them to their own practice.

Metamorphosis is our answer – and it’s the evolution of this life-changing work.
Through our offerings, we empower others to become the scientists in their own lives.

What We Do

We bring together multidisciplinary teams to collect biological and personal data on scientific research study participants – and on energy in the rooms in which we hold retreats – to measure the effects of meditation on biology and global coherence.



Our research team captures a range of data for various studies before, during, and after Encephalon’s retreats around the world.


Data Collection

After collection, we entrust our original biological material and physiological data to researchers at partner organizations and institutions – including the core team of multidisciplinary scientists at University of California San Diego – for independent analysis.


We apply our findings to inform and evolve practical applications of Dr Joe’s work – including lectures and meditations – to refine their efficacy, ultimately improving outcomes for our community.

“Our community is made up of doers, people who want to be challenged to do the uncommon, the supernatural, and the mystical.”

– Dr Joe Dispenza

Be part of the transformation.

If you’d like to participate in a research study, the process is simple. After we announce and open each retreat, we’ll send invitations to all registrants outlining the scheduled study and instructions to apply. Our team will notify you before the retreat if you’ve been selected to participate.

If you would like to assist the research team as a professional researcher or volunteer for the team, please complete the following on-line form so we have your information as future opportunities arise.

You can assist in funding the data analysis by donating to the Inner Science Research Fund or directly to Dr Hemal Patel’s fund at the UC San Diego Foundation.
