A GROUNDED EXPLORATION INTO THE HEART OF THE MYSTERY OF THE EXTENSION OF CONSCIOUSNESS
5 session webinar • begins September 27th, 2015 • Hosted by G. S. Bobroff & Cynthia Cavalli
• A grounded look at objective evidence • A whole-bodied search for meaningful understanding •
Featuring brand new dialogues with Rupert Sheldrake
Since 1981, Rupert Sheldrake has been exploring the scientific evidence for the extension of consciousness in humans, plants and animals. Pioneering Swiss psychologist C. G. Jung coined the term synchronicity following his observation of powerful meaningful coincidences in his life and the lives of his patients and developed his theory through discussions with preeminent physicists Albert Einstein and Wolfgang Pauli. Taken together the work of Sheldrake and Jung allows us to proceed in a grounded and whole-bodied way into meaningful inquiry about the nature of our reality.
Jung & Sheldrake: Synchronicity & the Extended Mind Webinar
is live Sundays 11 a.m. - 1 p.m. PST beginning September 27th, 2015
Session 1 - Evidence for the extension of consciousness: How can we know objectively that consciousness extends beyond the body? We'll look at Dr. Sheldrake's scientific research including exclusive video and highlights from his books: The Science Delusion, The Sense of Being Stared At, Dogs That Know When Their Owners Are Coming Home.
Session 2 - Sheldrake In Dialogue: a brand new video conversation with Rupert and Gary filmed in 2015. (This session will consist entirely of a new pre-recorded interview and will not be convened live).
Session 3 - Jung on Synchronicity and Meaning: How can we understand the fact of meaningful coincidence? Is every synchronicity a positive indicator? How can we better house within us the meaning that these events bring? We'll look at the connection that Jung saw in synchronicity to the feeling-based holistic worldview of the ancient Chinese traditions of the Tao and I Ching. Co-hosted by Cynthia Cavalli.
Session 4 - Best Synchronicity Ever! We'll look at some of the juiciest synchronicity stories in history: real life modern examples, Hollywood and musician's tales, unbelievable literary examples and we'll hear your Best Synchronicities Ever!
Session 5 - Heart of the Mystery: How can we participate more fully with synchronicity? How can we bring our whole selves to these experiences? What role does the heart play in this mystery? How does the fact of synchronicity change our view of the world and ourselves? Nov. 1. Co-hosted by Cynthia Cavalli.
Each session will include time for discussion, reflection and sharing of our experiences of this mystery.
Video recordings of each session will be available shortly after broadcast.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND? Everyone! No experience necessary! This is both an introduction to this material and a deep exploration. We avoid the use of jargon and speak in a way that everyone can understand. Anyone can appreciate this work, because what we're exploring is part of the psyche, part of Nature (because this is so, we can go deep without needing to use specialized terminology).
"The work which is now to be done is to work out the concept of synchronicity. I don't know the people who will continue it. They must exist but I don't where they are." – Marie-Louise von Franz
