Date & Time
10:00 am - 5:30 pm
In his first workshop in New York since 2012, Rupert Sheldrake will discuss how we can learn to reconnect with the more-than-human world around us and integrate scientific understanding with direct intuitive experience. He will summarize scientific evidence that shows our minds are much more extensive than our brains and can stretch out to affect people on the other side of the world, and even reach out into the sky.
He will show how his hypothesis of morphic resonance enables us to understand rituals and mantras afresh, and provides a new interpretation of memory and the survival of bodily death. This changes the way we think about our deaths and those of our loved ones.
He will also explore how the practice of gratitude can make us happier and more generous, and how singing and chanting can give more joy in our lives and enhance a sense of community. He will discuss the recent revival of pilgrimage and the nature of holy places.
This workshop will include practices, discussions, and time for questions and answers with Rupert Sheldrake.
