A specific wish of Dr. Tanous was for the Foundation to conduct a definitive study of his life. The Foundation sponsored a research project to document and preserve the details of his life and work. The researchers have complied over 70 hours of audio/video taped interviews in addition to written reports, photos, surveys and other related documents.
Now that this phase of the preservation is complete, the Foundation is making the results of the research available to researchers and other interested parties. The research material will help to further the understanding of the life of Alex as well as provide additional insight into the diversity of his work. It is that diversity which distinguishes him from others in his field.
If you would like more information on this project and accessibility to the material and or have information you feel would be of interest to add to the data collected, please contact the Foundation.
The following comments are from the final report submitted by Ms. Bennell and Dr. Frohock.
Alex was Uncommonly well-loved. He was respected by his colleagues and respected and loved by his family. His legacy of deep insight and committed service to others is what will endure long after any specifics about Alex’s ways of living have been examined, debated and/or dismissed. —Researcher, Polly Bennell. Polly Bennell, of Portland, Maine, is a psychotherapist, writer and filmmaker whose productions have won numerous national awards. She has taught media and/or communications for Vermont College/Norwich University and at the University of Southern Maine and Maine College of Art.
Alex was a teacher and healer who moved to the edges of these fields by virtue of the psychic powers that he asserted and used. Among the gratifying results of this research has been the confirmation that Alex really was a good person, and that many people believe that his powers were genuine. —Researcher Fred Frohock. Fred M. Frohock, is a Professor of Political Science at Syracuse University where his academic concentrations are political philosophy, law, and bioethics. He is the author of seven books, including his latest Healing Powers, and numbers of articles in scholarly journals.
The Alex Tanous Foundation’s Mission is to further the lifelong work and teachings of Dr. Alexander Tanous. Our goal is to increase public access to Dr. Tanous’ lectures and writings by making this information readily available and accessible through a variety of mediums.
The Foundation’s historical archive is crammed with documentary evidence of firsthand corroboration, as well as scientific verification of Alex’s psychic abilities, that needs to be released to the world. Help us to assist others in reclaiming their spiritual and psychic abilities.
We are preparing to move ahead with our mission of making all the information in the Alex Tanous archives accessible to everyone. A campaign has been organized to help fund this endeavor. Our goal is to reach $5,000. To those who loved Alex and to those whose lives Alex touched. Please give as generously as you can.
