#627: Joseph "Joe" Dispenza


Joseph Dispenza is an author of several fluffy New-Age snowflake bullshit self-help books, and is particularly notable for his appearance in the deranged piece of pseudo-science delusion “What the Bleep do we know”. Dispenza, who presents himself as "Dr. Dispenza", is the proud possessor of a “Doctor of Chiropractic degree” from Life University, and currently seems to be in the “miraculous healing” business. He is also a follower of Ramtha’s School of Enlightenment, and has produced several Youtube videos in which he talks about quantum physics the way he sees it, which has nothing to do with quantum physics (Dispenza really doesn’t even have the faintest idea what quantum physics is), but a lot to do with gibberish centered around various ridiculous forms of woo and crackpot spirituality crap.

If you enjoy torturing yourself with fluffy fogbanks of pink-tinged drivel, you may check out his DVD series “Your Immortal Brain,” which allegedly “looks at the ways in which the human brain can be used to create reality through the mastery of thought” – which does not mean anything (alludes to the Secret), but that doesn’t seem to matter much to Dispenza; like quantum physics linguistic meaning appears to be just whatever Dispenza fancies it to be at any given moment.

Diagnosis: Pretentious, delusional puddinghead who is apparently convinced that what he thinks becomes reality in virtue of him thinking it. Otherwise Dispenza doesn’t care too much about reality.

  1. Dispenza is a perfect model for the Dunning Kruger effect. He actually believes that he's a Neuroscientist. I think mental illness is the main criteria when Hay House selects its authors.

    2. "Consciousness is the X factor [that collapses the wave into a particle]" Von Neumann. mathematician. You might read Amit Goswami, physicist, if you think its all drivel. I don't know Dr. Joe or his work, but I know the principles behind it are not drivel, thy are primary universal creative law (physical law is a contract - and is secondary)

    3. Oh, I am familiar with the consciousness collapses the wave function-idea. It's drivel. But here is the thing: Even if it were correct, it wouldn't remotely support the New Age, feel-good, hand-waving nonsense promoted by Dispenza.

  2. A friend recommended the work of this nut. What a glib arrogant man. He appears to believe that he's a neuroscientist and uses this title on his web site. His bio states that he studied Biochemistry at Rutgers, but he doesn't say for how long, one day? One year? Who knows? The only courses he seems to have passed are in Chiropractic and a BS from some Liberal Arts College, which, he claims, an emphasis on neuroscience,whatever that means. This guy is nothing more than a snake oil salesman.

    1. I noticed the same thing. I was curious what kind of "Dr." he was. When i didn't find a wikipedia page, I thought to myself "I bet he is a chiropractor". I looked up a page saying Dr. Joe Dispenza biography and laughed out loud when I read he was a chiropractor

    2. I suppose being a chiropractor is beneath your station then. I work in the oilfield as a crane operator. To you I must be a tremendous joke.

  4. yeah truly this guy, what does he know? I mean 4 doctors told him to get an operation because he had hurt 6 vertebrae very seriously. But you know a guru like him, why should he right? hey for all you know that was 30 years ago, and he did managed to get completely healed, what do YOU GUYS know about anything?

    1. i agree. don't take a pot shot at a guy they said would never walk again. do you think YOU could pull that off??? most of us could not - not that we don't have the potential. being a skeptic is fine, but trashing someone who actually healed himself is another thing altogether.

      I ended up on this page b/c I was curious what degree this man had as well. Yes, he does not have an advanced degree in neuroscience, but also yes, he DID heal himself with the power of mind over matter. If you study eastern philosophy, you will understand. forget about new age whatever you want to call it (i'm referring to the guy who posted this basically verbal abuse (GD?), if you practice meditation you will see the mind is a truly powerful instrument of healing.

    1. Vp Mvp, I'm really curious about this person. Instead of focusing on the criticism, can you tell us more about him? He claims to be a neuroscientist, which while not a legally-protected title would seem to require some advanced training and/or original research publication credits. Instead, what I see on his Linked-in page is a carefully-worded statement that he attended Rutgers where he studied Neuroscience, and that he "also has a B.S. degree" (which seems to carefully not name Rutgers as the institution be degreed from).

      This strikes me as fishy, and nakedly deceptive. Am I mistaken? Did he not obtain a chiropractic degree from a private chiropractic school? Because I guarantee, there are no leading neuroscientists he could've studied under there.

      Are we mistaken? Can he legitimately claim expertise in Neuroscience? Peer-reviewed scientific publications? Co-authorships?

    2. Here's what's on Dispenza's bio-page at "Quantum University"

      "Dr. Joe Dispenza, D.C., studied biochemistry at Rutgers University and also holds a B.S. degree with an emphasis in Neuroscience. Dr. Dispenza received his Doctor of Chiropractic Degree from Life University in Atlanta, Georgia, graduating magna cum laude."



      Delete
    3. But Life University is a laughable parody of an educational institution. No reasonable person would rank a degree from that place higher than a degree bought on the Internet through a link in a spam email.

      Delete
    4. Exactly! He eas told he could never walk agin for the rest of his life yet healed himself. Anbody of the people of the hospital's he went to criticising him? There will always be critics wethe you do right or wrong. The people that are saying all this crap havent been rockbottom mentally(yet) they know it all. They are like sport judges who judge sportsmen while sitting on their fat asses at home. Joe dispenza was a yoga teacher and a hipnotherapist before his accident. Go try 1 of those then critics ore meditation and then startjudging.

  8. The man's qualification is experiential rather than academic which is fine by me. In the end you have to use your own discernment to decide if someone has something to offer you, rather than listen to the self-aggrandizing naysayers own rants. I found this article informative http://www.superconsciousness.com/topics/health/physician-heal-thyself

  9. The fact that thousands of people are healing themselves with his meditations including a friend of mine who was partially paralysed and went from wheelchair, to two walking sticks and then finally discarding the sticks altogether at one of his workshops makes your 'article' completely redundant. I genuinely feel sorry for the negative posters who will be trapped in the 20th century paradigm..

    2. Yes, very well said. I'm a living example of using my mind power to heal myself. I'm wounded warrior. While hospitalized, conventional medicine practiced by the best specialists each having earned multiple advanced degrees NEARLY KILLED ME!! I was nearly another static of death by doctor. I finally made a full recovery by using non stop visualizations, refusing surgeries. I walked then swam daily. Finally I linked to with an experienced natural path specialist. I made a full recovery much to the disbelief of my medical specialists, whom btw,I have great respect. They only follow theyre conventional training, which for the most part is outdated. I only just discovered Dr. Joe. His story caught my attention for being so similar to mine. To ask the naysayers including the author of this blog, to you I say, shame on you.

      Delete
  10. I think the weight of his story is deeply underestimated. Just a brief glimpse at the timeline of medicine from 3300bc to today,I don't think there is a single hope, belief or example recorded of a complete regeneration of crushed vertebrae in medicine...what to speak of having done so using the mind...the blog post author has not done his research otherwise you would know Dr Joes personal story. The fact is he healed his own crushed vertabrae.As far as medical research goes,this has never ever happened before.

    1. That's because he lied about the extent of his injuries. They weren't crushed. He DID have surgery and chiropractic. He did NOT heal his body through force of will.

  11. Ah, just to poke the fire! And again offer many thanks to this forum. I had seen a couple of vidz in my YT feed that came recommended. I watched a couple that referred to David Hawkins and his "works"... and before I sank another few hours, i looked him up on this list. Saved! then there is this maniac Dispensa (of woo?!) Man, i like to listen to the mad ravings of Flat Earthers and word salad at bed time. Sends me right off as the brain can just switch off! Im wondering though, what long term damage this is going to do. However, just a quick shout out again to the chaps who sank a lot of time in to this forum. Anyway... i notice "Dis-poser" is currently doing the rounds, as featured on popular podcasts. And he just talks utter shit. For the longest times, the self help always ranted on about "gratitude" (and there seems to be something about the vegus nerve that triggers something or other - meh, whatever) but i was often stuck about being "grateful" to whom...for what (turns out it doesnt matter) but at last, i can say im grateful that I see the woo woo BS for what it is. Sadly though, there are desperate people out there who will waste YEARS and much needed $$$ chasing the "secret" or, aptly, running down rabbit holes. Its entertainment for sure... but it can't be taken as a foundation or framework for life.

  12. I’m wondering how many of the hateful commentators have actually reached deep, powerful states of meditation regularly. I too do not appreciate Joe’s loose use of words like “Quantum,” etc - but it’s the impact on your life that his and so many other meditations may have when applied with discipline. It is not WOO WOO (a redundant and vague phrase used just as loosely as Quantum) when the results of the student are measurable and profound. My life has changed radically since applying meditative techniques, and yes, sometimes they leave me in awe. I respect others’ uncertainty in Joe’s phrasing, but if you have not regularly achieved deep states of meditation - then the point is... simply lost on you.

    1. Excellent points Brett. People that toss out the benefits of meditation because they convince themselves that its just cosmic ooze are really missing out. I say we let them miss out. They will never get their mind where it needs to be to benefit from it anyway.

    2. I was completely captivated by Dr Joe's talks, convincing expertise in both science and metaphysics, and his inspiring words of wisdom so naturally tried to google him to find out more information. Could not find anything that was not self-promotional. I then heard him talk about his many broken vertebrae, prognosis for never walking again, refusal of surgery and then miraculous recovery. I would like to know why a Dr himself and "neuroscientist" who experienced a miraculous healing after a serious spinal injury does not include scientific evidence (Xrays, drs' reports, testimonials etc) in his many talks about this experience. This is a no brainer for me. There seems to be inconsistencies in his credentials - "I wanted to learn about neuroscience so I got a neuroscience degree". One of his many websites says his career related degree touched on neuroscience. That was not his major. Why say otherwise? Unfortunately I question Dr Joe's sincerity.

      Delete
    3. This is my third attempt to post here. Apologies if previous posts went and I am repeating myself.
      My main question is about Dr Joe's spinal injury and miraculous healing some years ago now. Why as a doctor himself and "neuroscientist" he does not include any physical evidence in his talks such as Xrays, Drs' reports etc about his claims. I would like to know when and where his accident took place and would like to hear from his friends as well as healthcare professionals about what they witnessed. My second query is about Dr Joe's academic credentials. He is inconsistent and ambiguous about what degrees he has. E.g. "I wanted to learn about neuroscience so I did a degree in neuroscience", however, elsewhere his bio says his main degree subject focused on neuroscience but was not actually in that subject. Why say it then? Such a smart person would avoid inaccuracy. Finally why is it near impossible to find any information on line about Dr Joe that is not self promotional? This is very curious.

    4. Hi. Comments on older posts have to go through moderation (given aggressive spammers), and I sometimes don't have the opportunity to go through them right away. So, yes - comments on older posts may occasionally be kept in limbo for a day or so. Sorry about that. They will be posted eventually, though.

  13. Dr Joe is good at what he does but what he does is not what it seems. Do some research on his past and you will find out he was part of Ramtha which is a failing cult that wanted to teach people to challenge their oneself, make known the unknown, the concepts that consciousness and energy creat or make reality and lastly that you are God or Dispenza way you are the placebo. You still with me??? He literally left his failing cult rebranded it and instead of having a person contact the knight in this meditation state he calls IT the Divine or even tells you to call it your god. He riddles small truths of both science and religion along with not naming what is (divine) in his quantum field to give people a generic energy to change themselves and their world. It’s mostly nonsense and I do think if you go to his meditations I suggest high caution as to what you are tampering with because it’s a very negative energy. This also is not from my personal experience as I went to one seminar and researched after. Pretty easy to figure out he is a fraud and Christians do not fall for his act and give this guy a once of thought or time.

  18. So far this sounds very similar in nature to Lafayette Ron Hubbard & Dianetics. I had a friend highly recommended Dr. Joe so I did like most others have done and found very little info on his personal life, just accolades from followers and skepticism from disbelievers. Lack of a well known figure's wikipedia page does shade a bit of disbelief. Also i am curious, as to yet have not found, any more the buying a few books as to what the cost associated with the various programs. Still researching tho...

    ReplyDelete
  19. Regardless of titles/labels or expensive paper degrees, Joe is saying one thing. And let's simplify it for all the disbelievers/contrived you can live in love,joy and contentment or you can live in hate,stress and judgment. You choose how you feel everyday and that becomes who you are. Try imagining yourself on the opposite side of the magnifying glass. This is a message of love

  20. Degree means jack shit when you have practicing doctor who single handedly is to be blamed today for measels outbreak in certain countries (and no, vaccines don't cause autism). I understand skepticism, but we are wrongfuly taught that we should fear unknown and Joe's is debunking that. There's certain solace in knowing that there's something not to be known, and god knows that realisation helped my anxiety, and my anxiety was certainly fueled by my innate skepticism and need to research and analyze everything. I don't think Joe's one of people that should be lambasted as a quack. His book ''Placebo is you'', while unbelievable in some aspects, still offers great insight into nature of personality and emotions.

  21. You are all writing about Dispenza and how snake oil he is, but you do not refer to all these people that have been healed by him and describe how that happened. There are so many testimonial videos in youtube. I guess you will say that they are paid to say so.... I am not here to defend Dispenza or any Dispenza, I am here because I am sick and tired of the academic community being so close minded. There is hate for every new approach. We are more dogmatic that any dark religion or cult.(I say "we" bexause I am PhD myself). We go to conferences and INSTEAD OF DISCUSSING ABOUT EVERYTHING THAT CAN HELP HUMANITY , we fight with each other about methodology, publications and impact factors of scientific journals. Science is to serve humanity, not to be a god towards all we must kneel. No, I will kneel to everything that can improve people's life. If there is evidence of something that can help people's quality of life, I will not wait for a fancy scientific journal to publish about it in order to look at it with respect. You do not only reject everything with out aa blinde review, you hate it. This is pathetic.

  22. I don't know what you claim to have a PhD in (you don't say), but I am pretty sure it isn't science. If it were, you would know that testimonials on youtube are worthless as evidence for anything. And no, not because the people in those videos are "paid" or anything. I am sure many of them really believe they were healed. You will find many genuine testimonials on youtube from people who claim to seen pastors raise people from the dead (or even been raised from the dead themselves), who swear that they have seen dolphins flying by the powers of chakras, or been abducted by lizard people, for bloodletting or alchemy or any medical claim already refuted. These people are often honest, and usually not crazy, but as science has discovered the hard way, the only way to test a claim is through rigorous tests that control for confounders (and the easiest person to fool when investigating, is yourself). Testimonials are worthless.

    And no, the science community is not close-minded. Indeed, building a career in science requires finding out new stuff. Scientists love new approaches. But science requires accountability and evidence! That's usually the rub for charlatans and pseudoscientists (who dogmatically don't want to let go of what they already have convinced themselves of is true.) If you can come up with a good research project with a hypothesis hasn't already been falsified (regarding some of what Dispenza claims, for instance), and a way of testing it that controls for confounders, you'll enjoy amazing success in science. But you do need the evidence.

    You seem to be confusing open-mindedness with gullibility. Being open-minded doesn't mean that you accept any random claim. It means that you are willing to change your mind if someone *gives you good reasons to believe* that you are wrong. Scientists are very much posed to change their minds about Dispenza, but he has to come up with the evidence, and youtube testimonials and anecdotes aren't gonna cut it (for the reasons pointed out above: you'll find honest testimonials about absolutely anything). He is, of course, not going to do that. The whole success of science is based on open-mindedness, rigor, careful tests and acknowledging that humans are terribly error-prone when using common sense to figuring out how the world works - to the annoyance of pseudoscientists who can't bother to do any of that, or dogmatists who can't accept that their cherished beliefs can't survive in rigorous tests when biases are controlled for and rather turn to blaming science for close-mindedness or something.

    1. Dear friend,
      First of all I have to admit that my post was a bit aggressive, mainly because of all the posts above that made me angry. I will try to be more polite this time, as your answer was.
      So yes, my PhD is in science education and now that I am writing this post, I have already published papers in blinded peer review scientific journals. I am also waiting a decision for other papers that are under review. I think I agree with you on some points of your post, but I still believe what I claimed in my first post. While this is not about dispenza or any dispenza, let's discuss some things about the academic community and science in general
      There is NO DOUBT that the "rigorous tests that control for confounders" as you mentioned, have helped humanity to move forward and to achieve amazing things. I love science for all its contribution to our lives: medicine, technology, HEALTH, etc etc.... There is no end to the importance of science for our advancement as societies.
      HOWEVER.
      if you think this system is a god because of the "rigor, careful tests", then i totally disagree.
      1.Have you ever been to conferences where a person from the audience -not a researcher- asks a simple question based on his real life experience and they tell him to "shut up" because "he doesnt know" or "because the statistical analysis is great " etc etc... Well, I have been myself in such a situation. If we make science for science, then all hope is lost. I believe that science must serve humanity, not the other way around. If you see a greater respect and bound between "common" people and scientists I respect your opinion. But I do not see that.
      2. Lets go to scientific journals. I guess you ll have published yourself some papers. I can guess that by the way you responded. So, have you read papers with ENORMOUS mistakes in methodology, with reasoning THAT MAKE NO SENSE, and still are being published by the ULTIMATE QUALITY CONTROL "blinded peer review scientific journals"? No my friend, this is not the ultimate quality control.
      3. Have you heard about papers that are being published because a researcher knows the editor and so he get published? Have you heard about people going to other countries and download their papers in order to appear as people worldwide download their work? Have you heard about researchers that get references to their work by agreement with other researchers? Charlatans and pseudoscientists are been accused of making money on their theories, but have we thought to our selves whether science and publishing is a well set up business as well?
      4.Have you heard about universities that give master degrees to people without any true work and studying? (I dont know if you are from USA or Europe, I am from Europe AND THIS IS A REALITY). That guy, with that kind of degree, after his graduation will claim that he is scientist. No my friend , degree sometimes is just a paper for the toilet. Where is the quality control here?...
      5. What about all the great scientists that are know recognized and respected, but when they started they were criticized heavily by the academic community. And they were also charlatans back then. So, do really "Scientists love new approaches"? as you think? I am not so sure. There are too many examples of recognized scientists that back then they were just a.... crazy guy claiming some shit.

    2. 6. There is a movie for a pioneer mathematician from india, Srinivasa Ramanujan. His story has gone mainstream because of a movie. In Harvard today you can find a statue, a bust of him. His work at the beginning was heavily criticized. Moreover, he used to say about his theory : "An equation means nothing for me , unless it represents a thought of god". According to your opinion, is that also a testimonial about lizards and raising from the dead?... I ask you that because this quote is certainly not accepted by all the severe and solemn academics. Tesla used to speak about lightning when he was perceiving a new theory. Is he a mad man? Is this accepted as a scientific method ? Was he crazy or could he just do SOMETHING THAT WE CANNOT DO? Can you answer me this question with absolute certainty? Because I dont. I dont know, and exactly because of that , i cannot judge him as f.....ing charlatan.
      7.Why so much hate? Yes, I TOTALLY agree with you that many things that dispenza or any dispenza claims have not been scientifically proven. Indeed. But what if they have not been scientifically proven YET? What if we do not have yet the technology to do so? What if the some of these will be proven in the future? Why so much hate towards all these new stuff? DO YOU KNOW EVERYTHING (not you personally) AND THEREFORE, YOU ALREADY KNOW THAT ALL THAT STUFF IS A BUNCH OF SHIT? I guess you dont (again, not you personally, this a question in general to all of us). Something that has not been proven yet, maybe will be proven in the future. And also, who says that until it is proven, we must hate every one claiming it?....
      8.No my friend, allow me to say that I do not confuse open mindedness with gullibility. I do not accept any random claim, but at the same time I DO NOT REJECT any random claim.
      9.And finally about the testimonials. First of all I cannot get your point. You say that a person is not crazy, but at the same time his testimonial means nothing to you. So what is going on? Testimonials are really important for me. I cannot reject a testimonial only by the fact that I cannot integrate what someone says into an existing scientific field. Maybe he speaks about something THAT IS NOT STILL DISCOVERED. Again, do we know everything and therefore, can we make fun of everyone that talks about something strange? Yes, maybe what he talks about has not yet been scientific proven, but does this makes him a charlatan? Maybe he is. Maybe he is not. By the way , what is a questionnaire and all the quantitative methodology we all show respect for? Is it not a sum of testimonials? If a friend of yours tells you that he has been healed by a way out of western medicine, would you like to know every detail about it , or would you try by all means, decisively, to explain his healing only by what western medicine believes? Because if you do the latter, then you are not open minded, you are more dogmatic of the worst cult.

    3. (Continuing the above post)
      My dear friend, I love science as much you do. But I do not consider it as God. I believe that we have to provide scientific literacy to common people in order to help them secure their health, their nutrition, their quality of their life as a whole. If something else -outside the scientific context AS WE KNOW IT TILL TODAY- claims that can also offer that values too, then I will approach it with respect. Not with hate. I will ask for more details and I will ask to get it in a scientific context in order to make rigor, careful tests about it, as you correctly say. I will try to find new tests, new methods to check it out because we may not have the means to test it yet. I will interview people that testify about it (so yes, I will take under consideration the testimonials). I will do many such things, but I will not hate it. Maybe at the end I will reject it, but even then, Ι will reject it with humbleness and cautiousness. Because I l now, that I don not know everything yet, and that there is still much to be discovered.
      To the best of my knowledge, true science is not arrogance, politics, accusations, conspiracies and abhorrence. Sometimes it would be useful not to reject anything new by using the existing literature. The true answer to any "charlatan", is not reject them with passion as if we are rappers and write diss tracks to each other. The true answer to " pseudoscientists " is focusing on science itself, LEAVE ROOM FOR ANY NEW OPINIONS TO EXIST and demean, degrade non valuable notions by reaching higher standards and moving forward into knowledge and discoveries.
      I could continue writing on and on, but there is no point. I think I outlined my opinions. I end my post with a quote from Nikola Tesla " “Science is but a perversion of itself unless it has as its ultimate goal the betterment of humanity."
      Thank you for your time reading my reply to you. Have a good day.
