RELEVANT EDUCATIONAL AND SPECIAL STUDY VITA Subject: Mind, Meaning & Metaphysics Eldon Taylor Director Progressive Awareness Research P.O. Box 1139 Medical lake, WA 99022 INTRODUCTION Eldon Taylor was a practicing criminalist for over ten years while completing his education. He supervised and conducted investigations, recovery and detection of deception testing. He specialized in physical security, lie detection, forensic hypnosis and intelligence and counterintelligence measures. His earliest work with subliminal information processing was conducted from this setting, including a double blind study conducted at the Utah State Prison in 1986-87 and published in his book Subliminal Communication. Dr. Taylor is an interdenominational minister who has made a life long study of the human mind and has earned doctoral distinctions in psychology and hypnotherapy. He is a certified psychotherapist and Fellow with the American Psychotherapy Association (APA) and a certified hypnotherapist with the American Guild of Hypnotherapists. He is a Diplomat with the Academy of Certified Chaplains and at present, he is the President and Director of Progressive Awareness Research, Inc. He is a New York Times Bestselling author. He has authored more than 300 audio, and video publications and 15 books. Dr. Taylor is the talk show host of Provocative Enlightenment on KTKK Radio (Seattle and the worldwide Internet). Additionally, he has made numerous appearances on television and radio and his work has been cited in the national press on many occasions. He is considered by many to be one of the foremost authorities on information processing without awareness (subliminal information processing). He has been featured in a 30-minute television show that focused only on his work and was aired on public television as well as making appearances in feature length documentaries such as Programming The Nation. He has also appeared on hundreds of radio shows including multiple three 3-hour appearances on the national radio show, Coast to Coast AM. Dr. Taylor’s radio show is now the internationally syndicated and features leading experts discussing subjects as varied as politics to neuroimaging. Each week he brings specialists to the conversation of mind and meaning. These guests range from the physicist to the alchemist, from the medical doctor to the psychic healer, in short, from any and every source that Eldon can find authenticity and credibility. Dr. Taylor has participated in independent studies regarding his work with a number of researchers at leading institutions such as Stanford University, Weber State University, Colorado State University, Munich University, Bremen University, and the Institute of Mexican Social Services (Medicine) to name a few. Dr. Taylor's experimental educational properties (e.g. Cancer Remission, AIDS, etc.) have been prescribed for patients across America and Mexico. The data from a longitudinal study regarding these properties has demonstrated a solid mind-body connection (psychoneuroimmunology) and has led to the development of new innovative non-intrusive health care adjuncts. Some of these new evolving technologies have been rigorously studied in double blind designs, (e.g. depression and attention deficit hyperactive disorder) and found to have statistically significant efficacy. Dr. Taylor's books and other works are available in public libraries and are currently offered in more than a dozen languages. He has led many workshops and made presentations in the United States, Mexico, China, Germany, Malaysia, the United Kingdom, Canada and others. Dr. Taylor's work has been featured and written about in major popular publications of a diverse nature, such as Omni, Newsweek, Body Mind Spirit, and The Spinal Network.
