ABOUT

Exploring Research at the Boundary Where Neuroscience and Mystical Experience Meet

Dr Woollacott will lead you in an in-depth exploration of the nature of consciousness from both the scientific perspective and that of mystical experience. This will involve a discussion about how each contributes to a complete understanding of the nature of consciousness.

Dr Woollacott will share evidence from scientific studies on near-death experiences which validates the presence of clear awareness when there is no brain activity. She will also explore topics regarding the brain processes that underlie end-of-life experiences, meditation and mystical experiences induced by neuro-modulatory substances like psilocybin and discuss the implications of this research for our understanding of consciousness.

Please join us at 7.30PM on Tuesday the 25th of May via ZOOM.
