The Vesica Institute offers training and resources in ancient & modern holistic sciences
We live in a time of the unprecedented release of information from spiritual traditions and researchers all over the world – however much of this information is fragmented, distorted, or of questionable value.
Our mission at Vesica is to collect the highest level of essential knowledge and practices from the world’s great spiritual traditions — and from modern holistic science researchers — to illuminate little-known solutions to the most serious spiritual, health, and environmental challenges we face today.
We believe that there is a growing group of human beings in the world, who are here to unite spirit and science together into a new holistic science.
The Vesica Institute has been created to help empower seekers like yourself with clear and concise presentations of essential information, to save you years of searching through the confusing mass of material available today.
From our location in Asheville, North Carolina USA, our live and online trainings serve thousands of students living on six continents. Come discover all the ways our resources can help to empower you in your personal journey.
The Founder of the Vesica Institute: Dr. Robert J. Gilbert
Dr. Robert J. Gilbert has a multi-faceted background in both spiritual and scientific studies. He is a former U.S. Marine Corps Instructor in Nuclear-Biological-Chemical Warfare Survival; since leaving the service in 1985 he has conducted independent research into the Geometric basis of modern science and new technologies. Dr. Gilbert holds a Ph.D. in International Studies and is a published academic author in that field, contributing to the first academic textbook in the new field of Transformational Politics.
Dr. Gilbert is particularly known for his remarkable ability to sift through huge amounts of information from multiple spiritual and scientific sources, and distill it into easy-to-understand trainings and resources.
Dr. Gilbert has studied multiple world spiritual traditions extensively, with advanced information from key systems integrated into the Vesica trainings. His non-sectarian approach is inclusive of individuals from all spiritual traditions.
Dr. Gilbert also has over 25 years of study and practice in the original European Rosicrucian and Holy Grail Traditions. Dr. Gilbert teaches the original independent form of Rosicrucianism, which leaves the student completely free. Students are given vital information and techniques, but are not asked to join any organization or to give their power away to an external authority: the original Rosicrucian work is to help everyone connect to spirit directly, and craft their own optimal spiritual path, without having to connect through a human intermediary.
Dr. Gilbert was also the first non-Egyptian to be certified to teach BioGeometry®, and helped create the standardized template for the Foundation and Advanced trainings in cooperation with BioGeometry® founder Dr. Ibrahim Karim from Cairo, Egypt. Dr. Gilbert has trained more people in BioGeometry® than anyone aside from Dr. Karim, and also has one of the world’s largest collections of rare European vibrational research texts.
Dr. Gilbert has been developing summaries of these little-known European vibrational discoveries to offer in the Vesica Vibrational Science courses, along with his own new developments in practical applications of the “Vibrational Spectrum”, which governs the health and consciousness of all living beings.
