The Scientific & Medical Network

Where evidence-based reason meets deep inner knowing

35 years as an independent educational charity

The Scientific and Medical Network is a creative international forum for lifelong transformative learning and change.

The Network is part of a worldwide contemporary movement for spiritual emergence, bringing together scientists, doctors, psychologists, engineers, philosophers, complementary practitioners and other professionals in a spirit of open and critical enquiry to explore frontier issues at the interfaces between science, consciousness, wellbeing and spirituality.

Insights gained from engaging in our extensive educational activities enable our Members to initiate informed transformative change in the world, and in their personal and professional lives.
