Have you had a personal encounter with God or a Higher Power?

The States of Consciousness Research Team at Johns Hopkins University is conducting an anonymous, web-based research study to characterize experiences of personal divine encounters with something that someone might call “God” (e.g., the God of your understanding), “Higher Power,” or “Ultimate Reality.” In recent years, the Team at Johns Hopkins has conducted survey and laboratory studies investigating spirituality, religion, and altered states of consciousness. This new survey is an important extension of their published and ongoing research on mystical experience, spiritual practice and spiritual transformation.
