Shifting Consciousness: Mind, Self and Brain in the 21st Century
Scientific and Medical Network, Beyond the Brain X, Latimer Place, London, August 16-18, 2013

2013 celebrates the 40th Anniversary of both the Scientific and Medical Network and sister organisation, the Institute of Noetic Sciences. This conference is also the tenth in the series, inaugurated with IONS President Willis Harman and Founder Edgar Mitchell in Cambridge in 1995. So it seems appropriate to come together again to explore a theme of mutual concern, Shifting Consciousness: Brain, Mind and Self in the 21st Century.

Former IONS President Dr. Marilyn Schlitz is making a special trip to attend and present the research behind her new film, Death Makes Life Possible, which we will watch on Saturday evening. Dr. Mario Beauregard is coming from Canada to present a new model of consciousness that overcomes the shortcomings of conventional models that ignore the wider reaches and deeper aspects of human experience. Dr. Andrew Powell brings a lifetime of professional experience to show how we can acquire a more mature psychological outlook, while the priest and broadcaster Rev. Peter Owen Jones will share his thoughts on the future of well being. Dr. Dean Radin will join us by Skype to present his latest research on parallels between photons and humans, and Dr. Kate Anthony will bring us right up to date on trends affecting self and identity in the social media. This landmark conference is not to be missed, and we greatly look forward to your participation!
