with the author
Scott A Olsen, PhD
professor of philosophy and comparative religion at the University of Central Florida,who is giving the following talks:
2.00pm: Yoga, Dreams and Other States of Consciousness
An important picture of consciousness is emerging out of the combined efforts of consciousness research (transpersonal psychology, NDEs, OBEs and dreams), parapsychology (human and animal research), indigenous spiritual practices (non-ordinary states of shamans), esoteric and yogic practices of the perennial wisdom traditions, and deep insights into quantum mechanics (nonlocality and superposition) and the brain (microtubules).
and, after a “Bring and Share” Vegetarian Tea at 3.00pm
3.45pm Consciousness, Resonance and Self-Identity.
Consciousness is a great mystery of humanity. Like life itself, it may result from resonance between the Divine (whole) and nature (parts) exquisitely tuned by fractal properties of the Golden Ratio. Resonance with increasingly inclusive states of awareness may ultimately lead to “golden” quantum coherence, Samadhi, or the cosmic conscious identification with the awareness of the Universe Itself.
Dr Olsen is also giving other talks during his visit to the UK (see below)
