A Zenith Experience is any positively felt Connection Experience. A zenith experience may range in power from minor nature and peak experiences through to full-blown visionary revelation. The opposite of a zenith experience is a Nadir Experience.


Zenith experiences are pleasant moments of unity, oneness, peace, bliss, enlightenment, realization, etc., caused when Consciousness descends into a Physical Unit that is healthy, prepared, and embedded in a supportive milieu (Sosteric, SA1).

A zenith experience may occur spontaneously as is the case, for example, when somebody is walking through the forest and they suddenly experience feelings of unity or oneness), or it can be induced, as for example when the Bodily Ego is intentionally suppressed through meditational practices (e.g. Transcendental Meditation) or nutritional supplementation (i.e. ingestion of Connection Supplements.)

A Zenith experience is the opposite of a Nadir Experience.

Zenith experiences may be distinguished along a continuum of duration and intensity. The following is a tentative ordering from least to most intense.

Salzman[1] distinguishes between progressive or regressive connection experiences. "The former is characterized by honesty, humility, tolerance, and generosity, whereas the latter is characterized by rigidity of belief, zealous proselytizing, intolerance or hatred of infidels, and propensity for aggression and martyrdom.[2]
