About the Founder

Dr Eldon Taylor


Eldon Taylor 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 diplomate with the American Psychotherapy Association (APA) and a certified hypnotherapist with the American Guild of Hypnotherapists. At present, he is the President and Director of Progressive Awareness Research, Inc. and an adjunct faculty member in the Department of Psychology at St. John’s University in Louisiana.
After 20 years of constant and systematic academic and clinical research, Dr Taylor has established himself as a world leading authority in the area of subconscious and subliminal science and his techniques have been proven by fellow researches and other independent and authoritative research institutes to be safe, effective and long lasting.
Eldon Taylor was a practicing criminalist for over ten years while completing his ministerial 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.
Eldon 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.
Eldon 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.
Eldon Taylor’s books and other works are available in public libraries and are currently offered in seven languages and in fourteen countries. He has led many work shops and made presentations in the United States, Mexico, China, Germany and the United Kingdom.
Eldon 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.
In 2005, he was awarded the coveted International Peace Prize by United Cultural Convention, recommended by UNESCO, in recognition of his effort in teaching Self-responsibility.
