John Samuel Hagelin (born June 9, 1954) is an American particle physicist, three-time candidate of the Natural Law Party for President of the United States (1992, 1996 and 2000), and director of the Transcendental Meditation movement for the United States.
A former researcher at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) (1981–1982) and the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC) (1982–1983), Hagelin is now Professor of Physics and Director of the Institute of Science, Technology and Public Policy at Maharishi University of Management (MUM). He has conducted research into unified field theory and the Maharishi Effect. His position on consciousness and its relationship to the unified field is not accepted by other physicists.
Non-academic positions Hagelin holds include an appointment by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi as Raja of Invincible America, president of the David Lynch Foundation and Honorary Chairman of the Board of Trustees of Maharishi University of Management.
