The first of the conference series was run in 1995. This year’s event covers science and spiritual practices, the boundary between neuroscience and mystical experience, transpersonal psychology, psychedelics and the brain, death and after-death communication, consciousness in relation to the brain and the universe, and the relationship between science and spirituality. There will also be an experiential session on each day.
Consciousness is one of the hottest topics in science, which is why we established the interdisciplinary Beyond the Brain conference series with Willis Harman and Edgar Mitchell of the Institute of Noetic Sciences at St John’s College, Cambridge in 1995. This will be the fourteenth in the series. The conferences all explore the frontiers of consciousness research beyond the limits of scientific materialism.
