Beyond Being: Frontiers in Consciousness Research
03/23/2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pmFree
Take part in “Beyond Being: Frontiers in Consciousness Research: Science, Spirituality and Wellness,” a free two-day conference hosted by Wake Forest University and Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center.
Why do so many cultures speak of body, mind, and soul as different from each other? When our physical life ends, does our consciousness end as well?
Leading researchers in the fields of perceptual studies and neurobiology will explore narratives of past-life and near-death experiences. They will explore the profound long-term impacts of these experiences and discuss the emerging research into a post-mortem existence.
Invited scientists and thought leaders will explore the intersection of contemplative sciences, spirituality, and wellness while discussing the powerful effects of mindfulness meditation and other cognitive approaches in pain management, healing and related outcomes.
