Kim Penberthy PhD-Beyond the Brain: Further Reaches of Consciousness (Live online conference) @ Live Zoom Conference
Nov 6 @ 2:30 pm

Kim Penberthy PhD presents: Contemplative Practices and Extraordinary Experiences.

Extraordinary experiences and abilities may be brought about by intentionally changing consciousness via various contemplative methods such as meditating. Some research indicates that various forms of meditation are associated with increased mindfulness and paranormal experiences of precognition, telepathy, clairvoyance, and synchronicities. Data exploring these descriptive studies of reported experiences will be presented, along with our early investigations on the impact of a meditation course in various populations. We will focus on self-reported extraordinary experiences and psi in a variety of contexts and studies and present data that found large percentages of people in the general public report such experiences. We will also review our most recent research comparing a self-selected group of meditators versus non-meditators and our findings regarding the frequency and impact of self-reported mindfulness, paranormal experiences, and performance on psi tasks over time and the meaning associated with these experiences. Recommendations for future research will also be provided.

A preview of Dr. Penberthy’s talk:

Edward Kelly PhD-Beyond the Brain: Further Reaches of Consciousness (Live online conference) @ Live Zoom Conference
Nov 6 @ 4:00 pm

Edward Kelly PhD presents: Mind Beyond Brain: Towards Reconciliation of Science and Spirituality

This presentation will begin with a sketch of the 15-year Esalen “Sursem” (from “survival seminar”) project that resulted in the books Irreducible Mind (2007) and Beyond Physicalism (2015).

The former mainly sought to collect in one place a large amount of empirical evidence for various “rogue” psychological and physiological phenomena that resist or defy explanation in conventional physicalist terms, while the latter went on with a modest degree of success to the more difficult problem of identifying some more commodious sort of conceptual framework, or worldview, or metaphysical system potentially capable of accommodating those phenomena. Dr. Kelly will then go on to a brief account of subsequent developments including recent advances in both research and theory, which will result early next year in a third book in this series, and end by attempting to state succinctly what Dr. Kelly thinks the entire project adds up to, both intellectually and practically.
