Quantum Psychology:  New paradigms in science and their impact on psychotherapy

Dr Amit Goswami and Sunita Pattani present this webinar exploring the key features of quantum mechanics and their influence on contemporary thinking about the nature of mind and consciousness. The revolution in physics that gave birth to quantum mechanics has become much more than a way of handling new data; it has birthed a new worldview that impacts on all aspects of modern thought. In their collaboration, Amit and Sunita are going beyond theories focusing on ‘quantum consciousness’ to explore in detail the creative ways through which we can draw on this quantum revolution to advance psychotherapy. A therapeutic approach that fails to accommodate the new insights will fall behind the world that it hopes to heal. Join our webinar to hear Amit and Sunita talk about their vision of psychotherapeutic approaches that fully honour our post-quantum world and its culture.

About the presenters

Theoretical Quantum Physicist Dr Amit Goswami is a retired full professor from the University of Oregon’s Department of Physics where he served from 1968 to 1997. He is a pioneer of the new paradigm of science called “science within consciousness,” an idea he explicated in his seminal book, The Self-Aware Universe, where he also solved the quantum measurement problem elucidating the famous observer effect. Amit has written many other popular books based on his research on quantum physics and consciousness. Examples include The Visionary Window, in which he demonstrated how science and spirituality could be integrated; God is Not Dead, in which he asserted that not only are science and religion compatible but that quantum physics proves the existence of God; and Quantum Creativity: Think Quantum, Be Creative, a work that explained all facets of creativity—its definition, the quantum thinking it entails, and what is required to be creative. In his most recent book, The Everything Answer Book (April 2017), Amit’s basic premise is that quantum physics is not only the future of science, but it is also the key to understanding consciousness, death, God, psychology, and the meaning of life. In short, quantum physics offers a theory of everything.

Sunita Pattani is a psychotherapist and author based in London. She is particularly interested in how the quantum worldview informs psychotherapeutic practice, and currently specializes in finding and treating the root psychological cause behind mental and physical disease. Following the release of her second book The Transcendent Mind, Sunita has become an established international speaker, teaching and facilitating workshops in Brazil, India and the USA. As well as blogging for The Huffington Post, Pattani is also a featured psychotherapist for the BBC Asian Network. She is currently co-authoring her third book, Quantum Psychology with Dr Amit Goswami.
Sunita is currently studying on the Master’s course in Consciousness, Spirituality and Transpersonal Psychology run by Alef Trust.

Dr. Herbert van Erkelens: Wolfgang Pauli and the ring i

Theoretical physicist Wolfgang Pauli discovered through his dreams and his active imagination ‘The Piano Lesson’ a dimension beyond quantum physics and depth psychology connected with love and synchronicity. A Chinese lady offered him in the Piano Lesson a ring that would enable to stay in contact with that dimension. Inside the ring there was an energy present, personified as an inner teacher and turned from lead into gold. The ring is known in mathematics as the complex unit circle and in physics as the heart of quantum physics. It is the ring i where i stands for the imaginary unit. The energy inside the ring represents a consciousness still unknown either to quantum physics or depth psychology, the sacred consciousness of the inner Christ.

Dr. Oliver Robinson: ‘Both-and’ thinking: On embracing paradox in spirituality, philosophy and science

Dialectical ‘both-and’ thinking is key to resolving paradox and integrating ideas in ways that avoid reduction of one idea to the other. In this talk, the history of such thinking in the West and East will be explored, including the Chinese yin-yang model, Hegel’s dialectical reasoning, Jung’s exploration of opposites within alchemy and the psyche, Erikson’s dialectics of psychological development, dialectical behaviour therapy, and both-and thinking in quantum physics. A dialectical model of the relationship between science and spirituality will be discussed.
