Online Gaia PK Experiments

There are no online experiments currently open. We expect a new experiment to open by August 2017.


  • Subscribe/unsubscribe from our mailing list here to receive updates on this and future work, as well as group intention experiments when they are scheduled.
  • Group intention experiments are of the same formats as the experiments below, but done over a webcast involving a larger group of people.
  • Feel free to like our facebook page
  • I am looking for cases where mental intentions may have influenced the weather.  If you know of or witnessed any such cases and can provide approximate dates and locations, please contact me at djcaputi at ucdavis dot edu
  • The California Drought Relief experiment can be done at any time, even when it is already raining in Davis, CA.  We are actually especially interested in data collected on rainy days.  This does not bias our results in any way because the control and experimental data is collected on very short timescales.

Purpose, expected risks/discomforts, and your rights:

This is a scientific study in which the purpose is to learn more about the interaction between our consciousness and the atmosphere.  There are no foreseeable risks or discomforts to you that would result from your participation in this study, however your participation is completely voluntary.  All of the information we collect about you will be kept private.  Your name will not be used in any published material or presentations.  You may use a pseudonym, but if so we ask that you use the same pseudonym each time you complete a session.  You may quit an experimental session at any time for any reason.

Important information about the ethics of weather-working:

We do not want to view ourselves as a potential entity to have power over nature!  We are not trying to control the weather with our minds!  Rather, we are inviting (rather than demanding) changes to occur in the atmosphere that will be beneficial.  This simple change in perspective is extremely important.  For example, if you were trying to weather-work with rain, you should be thinking “let me consciously invite and welcome moisture to the area” rather than “let me try to make it rain with my mind”.  In other words, give the power over to mother nature to make the ultimate decision of the outcome.  Even better, try to eliminate the words “me, myself, I” in your thinking, as this could inflate the ego, which is often said to be damaging to spiritual growth.  If you have any questions on this approach or wish to get a better understanding on its importance, please email the researcher before starting a session.

Terminating a session:

Should you need to terminate a session anytime after submitting the questionnaire on the experiment page, we kindly ask that you contact the researcher (email listed above) or fill out this form within 3 days to ensure that your data from that session is not included in the analysis.


1. California Drought Relief

This experiment is closed as the drought for this area of California has ended.

Please watch the video below before beginning a session:

Experiment lengths are in addition to a waiting period that will last until 0, 10, 20, 30, 40, or 50 minutes after each hour.

2. California NOx

This experiment is closed as the NO/NO2 analyzer from Chews Ridge Observatory has been relocated.

Please watch the video below before beginning a session:

(Don’t worry about the scientific details behind NOx – focus your intent on cleaner air)
