Spindrift Research
Exploring consciousness and prayer

Welcome To Spindrift

This website explores the agendas that drive prayers and the defense mechanisms in our minds that are busy scheming to prevent us from knowing about the powers we didn't know we have.

In 1969, Bruce and John Klingbeil began Spindrift Research.  The father and son worked as spiritual healers for Christian Science.  In the afternoons, they worked as scientists to apply the scientific method on human consciousness and prayer.  Positive and negative prayers from many religious traditions were tested on mostly plant organisms.

The word spindrift means the turbulence of waves during a storm in the ocean that tosses a fast hitting spray at the top of the waves.  The fast spray is called spindrift.  Spindrift spray hurts when it hits people in the face.  Spindrift waves are stirring and symbolize stirring of thought. 

Could you imagine that testing prayer would create turbulence?  Spindrift Research found itself in religious and scientific turbulences for testing prayer.  The name Spindrift became a perfect fit because it described the opposition to testing prayer in a laboratory and the bizarre deaths of the Spindrift founders.

Prayer is a popular subject to study.  Yet for some people Spindrift crossed the redline when people volunteered to be tested during prayer.  You would assume there would be enthusiasm for doing research of prayer, but the reality was far different. 

I was looking for people interested in the research of human consciousness and prayer.  I was fortunate to meet the Klingbeils.  Their work bridged a gap that many people believe is impossible, which is tracking the effects of some prayers.

Negative prayers have no religious boundaries.  Spindrift was first to point out negative prayers from some religions which included the prayers of the Islamic extremists.

The purpose of this site is to keep the Klingbeils’ experiments, data, and approaches to measuring the effects of thought and prayer.  I have also written A Journey into Prayer.  It’s a book about the religious controversies and experiments of Spindrift.  Click the banner below.
