Jessica Corneille, MSc is a Research Psychologist specialising in spontaneous spiritual awakening experiences. She graduated with a Masters Degree in Psychology (Distinction) from the University of Greenwich, where she focused her studies on altered states of consciousness. With a passion to bridge the worlds of science and spirituality, her mission is to challenge the default pathologisation of awakening experiences by helping to inform and encourage mainstream psychology to look beyond the current designated spectrum of ‘normality’, to encompass the transpersonal as something that is intrinsic to the human experience.
Jessica recently published her research on the phenomenology, individual differences and well-being effects of spontaneous spiritual awakenings with Dr David Luke, and has given a number of talks on her work, including with the British Psychological Society (BPS). She works for the Scientific and Medical Network and Galileo Commission, is a collaborator of the Emergent Phenomenology Research Consortium and Spiritual Crisis Network, and is a certified Kundalini Yoga teacher.
