Our Campus

The IAC Campus has a unique combination of optimized physical infrastructure and a specially cultivated energy atmosphere, providing the ideal environment for:

  • People wishing to have or to improve their parapsychic/psi experiences, increasing their self-awareness, especially via the consciousness laboratories
  • Immersive educational events and workshops
  • Major scientific symposia and conferences.

A key feature of the 100,000 m2 (25 acres) complex is its innovative, leading-edge set of consciousness laboratories, each designed to provide an ideal environment for self-experimentation and research on a specific theme, under the support and guidance of IAC’s staff. These laboratories allows the person to be both the researcher and the object of study, offering prime conditions for the planning, practice, observation and analysis of their personal psychic experiences.

As part of its development policies, the IAC Campus incorporates sustainable ecological practices. The Campus staff currently undertakes projects related to the maintenance, re-establishment and improvement of flora, fauna and natural resources while concurrently investing in the use of energetically efficient technologies and constructions. Systems that are already installed for the sustainability of the area include the generation of electrical energy through photovoltaic panels, solar heating, smart irrigation, composting, waste recycling, rain water harvesting (cistern with 540 thousand liters of capacity).

    • Energy Mindfulness Lab – a semi-spherical construction with a radius of 3.5 meters (11.5 feet) dedicated to the performance of the waking physical immobility technique and energy mindfulness practices.
    • Projectarium – a spherical construction with a 4.5-meter (15-feet) radius optimized for the production of out-of-body experiences or conscious projection.
    • CosmoLab – a semi-spherical construction, 4 meters in radius, designed to facilitating a personal expansion of the consciousness (cosmoconsciousness) and mental body projections. It is equipped with a planetarium projector to facilitate induction of expanded states of consciousness.
    • Phytolab – a ‘treehouse lab’ in a majestic tree (cork oak, Quercus suber) built to facilitate the experience of integration and sensing phytoenergies, the natural energies produced and irradiated by plants. It is powered by solar energy to avoid electromagnetic interference.
    • Virtual Reality Lab – a system and special content to prepare and induce out-of-body-experiences through an immersive and very realistic simulation of a typical astral projection, including flights over cities, nature and space sequences.
  • The IAC Campus Library consists of an archive of more than 35,000 sources, mainly in the area of consciousness studies and psi phenomena. It includes rare and autographed books from pioneering consciousness researchers. In addition to regular books, the library stores encyclopedias, dictionaries, journal collections, newspapers, periodicals, and other collections.
  • The IAC library will be open to the public.
  • In addition, IAC plans to scan and make available online to the public rare and out-of-print copyright-free material, to make knowledge and research material available to a wider audience.

  • Lodge
    • The Lodge has four ensuite double rooms fully furnished and pleasantly decorated in order to provide comfort and functionality, including a small kitchenette with a/c, microwave, sink and fridge. It was designed to accommodate visitors for the stay during courses and, also, for longer stays for personal retreats and use of the consciousness labs.
  • Campus House
    • To support activities, researchers and volunteers who stay for longer periods
  • Constructions
    • All construction carried out in the IAC Campus is graded Level A, with building techniques and material that brings higher energy efficiency, thus reducing consumption and carbon footprint.
  • Solar systems
    • Photovoltaic energy – Main photovoltaic system; currently producing approximately 25% of total consumption of IAC Campus with a 4200 W rated power (28,8 m2 / 310 square feet solar panel). In 3 years the system produced: ±  20,033 Kwh and saved:
      • 8,013.24 Kg – (CO2 – Carbon Dioxide)
      • 66 Kg – (SO2 – Sulfur Dioxide)
