Our Mission

 The mission of The Institute of OM Foundation is to promote and focus on states of consciousness and how they effect the mind, body and spirit. It aspires to be the premiere research foundation focused on partnered practices. It is focused on compassionate and respected rehabilitation, using practice-based modalities. Modeled in part on the MIT Media Lab, IOMF is a research institute aimed at testing the effectiveness of OM and other wellness modalities to treat PTSD, sexual trauma, sexual trangressiveness, stress, depression, chronic fatigue syndrome, and a number of other ailments. The aim is to treat patients in both in-patient/resident and outpatient settings for all aspects of health and consciousness for which there is an evidence basis.

Our Approach

The I OM Foundation applies the rigor of science to the ineffable practice of orgasmic meditation (OM).

Hundreds of individual stories hint at the possibility that OM is a transformative practice that heals maladies ranging from sexual dysfunction and trauma to depression and anxiety, chronic fatigue, and autoimmune disease, while improving positive affect, energy, and ability to focus and be present. Scientific research will test these possibilities with objectivity and rigor, looking both at the outcomes of an OM practice and at the underlying biological mechanisms.

As a funder and executor of research, the I OM Foundation is committed to transparency, openness, rigor, and reproducibility. We commit to sharing the results of our research in a timely way, whatever these results may be. Whenever possible, we will work with and/or be advised by researchers of the highest caliber.

Research done properly can be slow and laborious; we look for innovative solutions that allow us to accelerate the pace of research through collaboration. We regularly seek research partners who share our values and want to work collaboratively and openly.

Our aim is to scientifically evaluate how Orgasmic Meditation affects human connection and flourishing. OM builds the fundamentals of human connection, replacing fear. The container of OM isolates a powerful primal force and channels it into deeply safe, positive connection and flourishing.
