Beyond the Brain XII – Further Reaches of Consciousness Research - 28th October 2017 - 29th October 2017

Beyond the brain xii

Dr Rupert Sheldrake, Prof Chris Roe, Dr Cassandra Vieten, Dr Dean Radin, Prof Stuart Hameroff, Dr Diane Corcoran, Dr Penny Sartori  


The interdisciplinary Beyond the Brain conferences were initiated with Willis Harman and Edgar Mitchell of the Institute of Noetic Sciences at St John’s College, Cambridge in 1995. Over the years we have covered a wide range of topics and this year we are taking a different approach by inviting four partners to join us and making the conference non-residential in London. On Friday evening, however, we will be holding the UK premiere of Member Amit Biswas’ award-winning film The Bridge.

Each partner has taken responsibility for one session covering their particular area of consciousness research. All our speakers are at their respective cutting edges and are constantly devising new and innovative research strategies to probe the nature of consciousness.

Attendees will have their minds stretched and their hearts warmed at this exciting landmark event and be able to network with like-minded people. This landmark conference is not to be missed, and we greatly look forward to your participation!
