About this Event

Are science and spirituality compatible? Are we on the threshold of a new understanding of their relationship?

Come and explore key questions on science and spirituality – both ancient and contemporary – and their relevance today. Featuring talks by Rupert Sheldrake and the Fintry Trust, with time for questions and answers.

Science and spirituality play hugely important roles in how we understand and engage with the experiences of life. However, scientific materialism has made it increasingly difficult for people to accept the ‘blind faith’ of many religions, or to believe in supernatural or spiritual realms.

Many of the world’s wisdom traditions, on the other hand, embrace the reality and power of non-material realms. And new scientific initiatives, which explore mind - body links, such as the neuroscience of meditation and its effects on wellbeing, are beginning to open new perspectives on reality.

A short introductory talk by the Fintry Trust will reveal some ancient scientific conceptions of reality, which unite the ‘Above and the Below’, and lay the foundations for a more holistic world view.

Rupert Sheldrake will explore themes from his recent books: 'Ways to Go Beyond: Spiritual Practices in a Scientific Age and Science' and 'Spiritual Practices Reconnecting through Direct Experiences'.

Science (from the Latin 'scire' – to know) is knowledge – whether of unseen principles or of concrete phenomena. It has a spiritual aspect as well as a material one.” The Fintry Trust

The effects of spiritual practices are now being investigated as never before, and many studies have shown that religious and spiritual practices generally make people happier and healthier.” Rupert Sheldrake
