Event description

Description

David Lorimer
presenting
Beyond the Brain:
A Paradigm Shift in Science?

More and more scientists from all disciplines are questioning the orthodox view that consciousness is reducible to matter. Could it instead be a fundamental feature of the Universe? David Lorimer will present the evidence base. This conference will be a combination of academic and experiential sessions, with plenty of opportunity for the participants to contribute, socialise and enjoy the stunningly beautiful ocean front setting of the Mayne Island Resort.

David Lorimer, MA, PGCE, FRSA is an acclaimed writer, lecturer and editor who has been Programme Director of the Scientific and Medical Network and editor of its journal for more than thirty years. He is the author and editor of over a dozen books, including The Spirit of Science; Thinking beyond the Brain; Science, Consciousness and Ultimate Reality and A New Renaissance (edited with Oliver Robinson). His early books on death and near-death experiences, Survival? and Resonant Mind were republished in 2017. He is also a founder of Character Education Scotland, promoting values development in schools around the Commonwealth. He currently lives in France.

The event will be hosted and chaired by Diana Clift, a Neurochemist turned Hypnotherapist, and a Vice President of the Scientific and Medical Network who has recently moved to Victoria BC from England.

Mayne Island is one of the smaller Gulf Islands between Vancouver and Victoria on Vancouver Island. The resort overlooks a beach and borders a forested park. All the accommodation has ocean views and there will be time each day to enjoy the surroundings and spa facilities.
