Event description

Description

A seminal talk to inaugurate the Psychedelic Society of Nottingham, which will then host regular talks, meditation and gong bath evenings, and breathwork workshops.

Rupert Sheldrake, PhD, is a biologist who taught at the University of Cambridge and author best known for his hypothesis of morphic resonance.

In this talk, Rupert will discuss the convergence of science and spiritual practices including the conscious use of psychedelics.

People with regular spiritual practices tend to live healthier and longer lives. Science sheds a new light on many spiritual practices, including pilgrimages, meditation, chanting, prayer and rites of passage. Rupert will reflect on our connections with collective memories, showing how his hypothesis of morphic resonance enables us to understand rituals in a new way, and provides a new interpretation of memory and the survival of bodily death. Our minds appear to be much more extensive than our brains.

Rupert will be introduced by Edward Sellman,The Art of Wakefulness / Centre for research in Human Flourishing (Univeristy of Nottingham), who researches non-ordinary states of consciousness as educative states.
