The Physics of Meditation: A Scientific and Experiential Exploration of Spirit and Nature

With Joseph (Puru) Selbie

August 2 - 4, 2019

The Physics of Meditation

A Scientific and Experiential Exploration of Spirit and Nature

Presenter: Joseph (Puru) Selbie, author of The Physics of God
“He draws from the transcendent testimony of mystics the world over as well as from the findings of string theory, David Bohm’s version of quantum physics, quantum biology, neuroscience, and quantum physics itself to demonstrate that a physics of God is at hand!”
–Dr. Amit Goswami, author of The SelfAware Universe
Woven into a weekend of experiential spirituality — including sessions of deep physical, emotional, and mental relaxation — we’ll explore how the explanations of spiritual phenomena and transcendent experience described by saints, sages, and near death experiencers fully align with and are supported by scientific discoveries in the fields of relativity, quantum physics, M-theory, neuroscience, and quantum biology.
Joseph is known for making complex subjects simple and clear— no science back ground required. The program is a wonderful balance of mind, heart; connecting the dots between science and experience.
Sessions
  • Matter is an Illusion
    • Drawing from: Quantum physics, neuroscience, quantum field theory (QFT), and the Higgs Boson
      • Experiential: Multi -level deep relaxation, breath work, and the grace of stillness
  • You have Two Bodies
    • Drawing from: M-theory, nonlocality, brane-worlds, and the holographic universe
      • Experiential: Pranayama and life-force awareness
  • Your Consciousness Creates Matter
    • Drawing from: Quantum biology, placebo theory, and the intelligent observer effect
      • Experiential: Hong Sau technique of meditation and concentration

Who Should Attend

  • Established meditators looking to deepen their practice: this program will reinvigorate your meditation practice through fresh insight into the core scientific and subtle principles of meditation as well as immersive meditation sessions
  • Anyone who wants to connect the dots between science and spirituality: this program will show you that clear support for ageless spiritual truths can be found in the modern discoveries and theories of science. No science background required
