Sperry Andrews

Sperry Andrews is co-director of The Human Connection Institute and the Conscious Intelligence Institute Foundation.
 
Sperry originated and, since 1990, has been Executive Director of the Human Connection Project, a scientific and educational research project designed to reinforce the underlying sense that human beings are innately psychologically and physiologically linked, even when in widely separate geographic locations. This project has employed a series of six preliminary pilot studies in preparation for an international multiple laboratory experiment. The purpose of the project is to offer an alternative to the current scientific worldview in which humans are considered physically isolated beings.
 
Sperry has given invited presentations on human interconnectedness and the Human Connection Project at the United Nations, World Business Academy, Duke University, University of Connecticut, and the Association for Research and Enlightenment in Virginia Beach. His articles have appeared in Frontier Perspectives, Alternative Therapies, and Exceptional Human Experience. He is coauthoring a book titled, The Ecstasy of Unity.
 
Before beginning the Human Connection Project with the help of the Mind Science Foundation in San Antonio, Texas in 1988 and becoming an Adjunct Research Associate from 1990 to 1992, he facilitated group experiences both public and private, enhancing people’s ability to become more identified with shared sensory, emotional, and mental awareness. He then continued to develop techniques to help groups achieve and maintain states of collective consciousness which hundreds of people in the U.S. and Europe have now experienced. Current weekend workshops, five-day intensives, and facilitator trainings are presented through the Northern Arizona offices of the Human Connection Institute, which he founded in 1996.
 
His interest in consciousness-for-its-own-sake began with a childhood near death experience. Knowing that everyone and everything are connected led him into contemplative and meditative visioning, including healing and teaching work. He was formally educated at Antioch College, Maryland Art Institute, New School for Social Research, State University of New York, and City College, San Francisco.
 
He is also a visual artist having painted and shown his work in many parts of the world, including a period of four years in Australia and a year in South America. His childhood home and, for many years his workplace, is now the Julian Alden Weir National Historic Site dedicated to American Art and Artists located in Wilton and Ridgefield, Connecticut. He has created, shown and sold his art work for over thirty years. His paintings are now owned by both public and private collections internationally.
