Who is behind this research?

This research is being done by Jevon Dängeli as part of his MSc studies in Consciousness, Spirituality & Transpersonal Psychology. It is a collaborative project of Alef Trust, the Professional Development Foundation and the Scientific and Medical Network, which is validated by Middlesex University, UK.

The research is supervised by:

Les Lancaster, Ph.D – Emeritus Professor of Transpersonal Psychology at Liverpool John Moores University; Honorary Research Fellow in the Centre for Jewish Studies at Manchester University; member of the Adjunct Research Faculty at Sofia University (formerly the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology), and the California Institute of Integral Studies. He is Chair of the Transpersonal Psychology Section of the British Psychological Society and President of the International Transpersonal Association.

Procedures and participants role:

Participants will be taught the technique of peripheral awareness in an initial Skype meeting. Participants will also receive the Mindful Power audio-programme where Jevon teaches the peripheral awareness technique comprehensively. Participants will be encouraged to listen to their recordings regularly until such time that they are able to maintain peripheral awareness in different contexts, as well as in stressful situations.


About one month after the initial Skype meeting the participant is expected to meet with Jevon once more by Skype for an interview about their experience of using peripheral awareness. This semi-structured interview will be recorded and transcribed and then analysed using predominantly the Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis method.

Step-by-step details of the participant’s role in this research project are outlined >> here <<


Research participant details will be kept completely confidential and the only people having access to their information will be Jevon and his supervisor Les Lancaster. Participants will not be required to give full names for this project if they choose not to. Jevon will be allocating participant numbers to ensure anonymity.

Please note:

All participants have the right to withdraw from the research at any time without prejudice to access of services which are already being provided or may subsequently be provided to the participant.
