Purpose & Priorities
Statement of Purpose:
The goal of Meridian Institute is to expand the
meeting ground between science and spirit by conducting and sponsoring
clinical and basic science research. We intend to examine concepts
about the body compatible with the premise that we are spiritual beings,
and to approach the healing process from this perspective.
The body of information that will be researched
and used as a guide for directing our work will be the Edgar Cayce health
readings. Now over fifty years old, they provide a coherent and consistent
physiology of how the body functions in health and disease. These
health readings have never been fully researched in a modern, scientific
manner that would provide data acceptable to all healthcare professionals
It is our intention to conduct research in a manner
acceptable to the modern healthcare community.
1.) To conduct and support research that
examines physiological, anatomical, and health concepts which help unify
the scientific and spiritual world views. This will involve sponsoring
clinical and basic research, and engaging in "seed research" through conferences
on specific topics and clinical projects incorporating a network of cooperating
2.) To support, sponsor and directly present
programs educating health professionals, scientists, and the public regarding
these spirit-mind-body connections.
3.) To serve as an information network for
researchers and clinicians exploring and applying these concepts and methods.
