Livestream: Science and Spiritual Practices:
Ways to go Beyond and Why They Work
with Rupert Sheldrake
Monday 8th June 7pm - 8.30pm
To go beyond is to move into a higher state of consciousness, to a place of bliss, greater understanding, and deep connectedness - experiences that all spiritual seekers hope for.
This talk is based on the themes of Rupert Sheldrake’s recent books, Ways to Go Beyond and Science and Spiritual Practices in which he looks at a wide range of spiritual practices that have scientifically measurable effects. Everyday activities can also have a mystical dimension, including sports and learning from animals.
In this talk Sheldrake will discuss how different practices, like prayer and meditation, can have complementary effects. He will also show how his hypothesis of morphic resonance can illuminate the nature of rituals, the power of mantras and the transformative effects of psychedelic experiences.
Rupert Sheldrake, Ph.D. is a biologist and author of more than ninety scientific papers and nine books, including The Science Delusion. He was a Fellow of Clare College, Cambridge and a Research Fellow of the Royal Society, and is now a Fellow of the Institute of Noetic Sciences, in California, and of Schumacher College, in Dartington, Devon.
When: Monday 8th June, 7pm - 8.30pm

The physicist and the mystic delve deep. Each in their respective realms, each observing what is being observed, each affecting what is being observed. The physicist touches the very edge between matter and meaning. The mystic, already deep in meaning, drifts in and out of those edges, forever affecting what is felt. There can never be certainty.
Deep into the realms of matter.
Deep into the realms of mind.
Deep into the dreams of matter.
Deep into the dreams of mind.
Drifting into knowing.
Drifting into unknowing.
Deep in the Deep.
Observer and observed:
Linked in the Deep.
Matter and Mind:
Connected in the Deep.
In the uncertainty of the Deepest Truths.
