William James Center For Consciousness Studies


The William James Center for Consciousness Studies was established in 1994 to serve as a research center for Sofia University. The Center is named after William James (1842–1910), an eminent American philosopher and psychologist. The William James Center at Sofia University supports projects that embrace the spirit of adventurous, open-minded inquiry into the farther reaches of human nature and experience demonstrated by James and his pioneering research agenda. The Center is the home to the Global Seeker Project, also known as the Sincere Seekers Project, which is the largest effort ever undertaken to find and understand people who are seeking so called higher states of consciousness such as: enlightenment, nonduality, persistent mystical experience, unity consciousness, god consciousness, and so on. More about this project can be found at: http://seeker.study.

The William James Center also hosts lectures and seminars, produces publications, and serves as a node in the growing network of institutions and individuals who participate in a broad range of consciousness studies.
