Peter Russell, M.A., D.C.S., F.S.P.

Peter Russell, M.A., D.C.S., F.S.P. is a fellow of the Institute of Noetic Sciences, of The World Business Academy, and of The Findhorn Foundation, and an Honorary Member of The Club of Budapest.
At Cambridge University (UK), he studied mathematics and theoretical physics. Then, as he became increasingly fascinated by the mysteries of the human mind he changed to experimental psychology. Pursuing this interest, he traveled to India to study meditation and eastern philosophy, and on his return took up the first research post ever offered in Britain on the psychology of meditation.
Peter also has a post-graduate degree in computer science, and conducted there some of the early work on 3-dimensional displays, presaging by some twenty years the advent of virtual reality.
In the mid-seventies Peter joined forces with Tony Buzan and helped teach “Mind Maps” and learning methods to a variety of international organizations and educational institutions.
Since then his corporate programs have focused increasingly on self-development, creativity, stress management, and sustainable environmental practices. Clients have included IBM, Apple, Digital, American Express, Barclays Bank, Swedish Telecom, ICI, Shell Oil, and British Petroleum.
Peter’s principal interest is the deeper, spiritual significance of the times we are passing through. He has written several books in this area — The TM Technique, The Upanishads, The Brain Book, The Global Brain Awakens: Our Next Evolutionary Leap, The Creative Manager: Finding Inner Vision and Wisdom in Uncertain Times, The Consciousness Revolution, Waking Up in Time: Finding Inner Peace In Times of Accelerating Change, and From Science to God: A Physicist’s Journey into the Mystery of Consciousness.
As one of the more revolutionary futurists, Peter has been a keynote speaker at many international conferences, in Europe, Japan, and the USA. His multi-image shows and videos, The Global Brain and The White Hole in Time, have won praise and prizes from around the world. In 1993 the environmental magazine Buzzworm voted Peter “Eco-Philosopher Extraordinaire” of the year.
