Presentation  

INFINITE AWARENESS: The Awakening of a Scientific Mind

At the beginning of her professional career, neuroscientist, Marjorie Woollacott had no doubt that the brain was solely a physical entity and was controlled by chemical reactions and electrical impulses. The first time she meditated, however, she had a glimpse of another possibility—an undeniable experience of unlikely and uncharted energy. In this talk, Woollacott presents evidence from both meditators and scientists regarding the—astonishing!—possibilities of human consciousness. Through her integration of data from objective science and subjective spirituality, Woollacott breaks open the issue of human consciousness and investigates the existence of the non-physical and infinitely powerful human mind.
