Alan S. Haas, PhD

Waltham MA •

Dr. Haas currently conducts research in the relation between psychology and physics, involving new approaches to basic physics including relativity and gravity, applying physical sciences to psychology in the same way they are applied to the understanding of biology, given that psychological and social experiences may be modeled using basic scientific principles. He is the founder of the online Psycho-biophysics Research Organization, a consequence of his training in distinguished laboratories and formal study of biophysics/biochemistry, molecular biology, physics, and psychology at the University of Pennsylvania and Harvard. In his final year of work for a Masters degree in Liberal Studies at Harvard, he is currently engaged in an experimental study of synchronicity, focusing on the possibility of a strictly naturalistic (psychological and biological) interpretation of synchronistic phenomena, involving an experimental demonstration of the synchronicity effect. His new book The Interconnectedness of Reality (available pre-publication at his website; see above) explores synchronicity as a possible gateway into the study of psychology using concepts in physics and chemistry rather than positing quantum mechanical effects or causes involving telepathy or other paranormal effects.

Dr. Main is a Senior Lecturer and the Director of the Centre for Psychoanalytic Studies at the University of Essex (UK), teaching about the historical, philosophical, religious, and cultural contexts of Jungian analytical psychology as well as on the application of analytical psychology to the study of myth and religion. His studies focus on a deep treatment of the relationship of synchronicity and the paranormal, especially in regard to Jungian perspectives, as shown in his article "Religion, Science, and Synchronicity” in Harvest: Journal for Jungian Studies (2000). His research has two main aspects: the emergence of analytical psychology out of tensions between secularising and sacralising currents in late-nineteenth- and early-twentieth-century Western culture; and the resultant distinctive character of analytical psychology and how it might account for the socio-cultural analysis of religiousness and its transformation under conditions of modernity, looking especially at science and religion interactions, religious fundamentalism, and ‘New Age’ spirituality. He is the editor of Jung on Synchronicity and the Paranormal (Routledge/Princeton, 1997) and the author of The Rupture of Time: Synchronicity and Jung's Critique of Modern Western Culture (Brunner-Routledge, 2004) and Revelations of Chance: Synchronicity as Spiritual Experience (SUNY, 2007).

Lesley Roy, Synchro Project Director

845 Whalley Avenue, New Haven CT 06515 • (203) 389-7410 •   •

Lesley Roy is the founding Director of the Synchro Project, an activity of Yale’s Initiative in Religion, Science & Technology, and coordinator of the Synchro Summit. She is an independent scholar who has studied and exhibited at the Yale School of Art.  While at the Yale Art Gallery, Lesley was inspired by an early Italian Renaissance triptych and had the intense desire to replicate the beautiful crackled appearance. After two years of research into historically correct pigments, crackle processes and gold leaf, Lesley incorporated her original artwork into a proprietary process she named, “reverse glass art” lead to the founding of Lesley Roy Home Couture, LLC. For over a decade, from her New Haven factory, she designed, manufactured and trained teams of artisans to supply every Neiman Marcus in the country with seasonal collections of hand-made dinnerware, and home accessories.  Featured in major high-end retailers such as Harrods in London and Geary’s in Beverly Hills, it was naturally acquired by royalty, the affluent and the elite throughout the world, even including Pope John Paul II, making her one of the world’s most successful commercial artisans and the recipient of several important awards celebrating female entrepreneurs.

As she stated at the time, “Our lifetime journey is to travel toward higher consciousness. The creative process is the vehicle artists use to make that journey.” 

In 2005, Lesley’s life-long study of art and how it impacts human development sent her headfirst down a path filled with extraordinary synchronicities.  She accepted the invitation to London to photograph the artwork of Dr. Ala Bashir, Iraq’s best-known and most spiritually attuned artist, who prior to the US invasion was also one of the world’s greatest hand surgeon, for the PBS History Channel Biography, “The Insider” and was so impressed and inspired by the profound body of work, she founding of the Corvus Art Center and spent the next five years collecting the surviving paintings, works on paper and sculptures, all the while garnering International news in the art world.  Over the next five years, major worldwide publications flocked to the Corvus Center (aptly named for the genus of Raven and Crow); BBC London Film Producer, CNN, Anderson Cooper360, the Charlie Rose Show, ABC, MSNBC, Associated Press all made the trek to visit her New Haven facility. The Corvus Art Center was the subject of several documentaries, but after one aired to an audience of 80 million worldwide, her long-held question, “Can art and the creative imagination have the force to effect change?” was answered with a resounding ‘yes’ when she received a call from the United Nations twenty minutes later.

Navigating the international art world, Lesley has written extensively about the importance of art in our life, and how it is intermingled in sociology, psychology, politics, religion, and arranged a record sale of seven monumental 3x4 meter painting to the Museum of Modern Art in the Middle East, but as curator, she most enjoys arranging loans of painting and sculptures for such exhibitions as, “Life Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness” at the American Visionary Art Museum, the DH Lawrence Festival Exhibition at the Durban House Heritage Centre, dedication ceremony for the magnificent oil painting, “From Eastwood to the World”, which now hangs there as a permanent tribute to DH Lawrence, and writing for the May 2010 solo exhibition publication book; an interview with Professor Douglas Tallack, Dean of College of Art at Leicester University & Professor of American Art History, and Professor Ala Bashir, at the University of Leicester’s Richard Attenborough Centre.

Lesley Roy Home Couture was her second successful manufacturing company, the first launched during the 15 years she lived in NYC, two doors down form the CG Jung Institute.  While attending the many lectures and events at the Jung Center, Lesley read extensively and immersed herself in dream therapy and dream journaling.  “I considered myself a citizen scientist on a quest for knowledge and understanding and I was only 19!”  The stage was set long ago for what would be an over-three-decade, search for the deeper meaning behind what Jung termed, “Synchronicity.”

“All of the paths have lead to the first, Synchro Summit being hosted at Yale University this October, and with great enthusiasm, I am certain it is a journey, which has come full circle.”

Gibbs A. Williams, PhD

41   5th Avenue, New York, NY 10003 • (212) 254-1084 •

Dr. Williams is a psychoanalyst who has practiced in New York City for the past 46 years, during which time he has investigated the perplexities of synchronicity phenomena. His research is detailed in his published book Demystifying Meaningful Coincidences (Synchronicities): The Evolving Self, The Personal Unconscious, and The Creative Process. (Jason Aronson Imprint, Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, March 2010), an original naturalistic theory of meaningful coincidences (synchronicities) as well as a blueprint for identifying, decoding, interpreting, and utilizing their embedded self-generated messages in ways that are intellectually innovative and experientially useful, derived from research in synchronicity studies, speculative philosophy, depth psychology, the esoteric occult, spirituality, and the philosophy of science. By inserting a dated synchronicity into an experiencers' flow of experience (contextual analysis), that which appears initially mysterious is viewed as the logical outcome of a given person's idiosyncratic creative process. His papers on this and related topics may be found at his website.
