Now in its third year, Beyond Bohm aims to use multiple aspects of David Bohm’s work as jumping-off points for ongoing inquiry and experiential probings. We are especially happy with this year’s offerings, and are honored to have more than 30 guest participants for Part 1 (July 16 – 30).
Our first weekend will open up significant new territory while exploring perennial questions regarding meaning, consciousness, dialogue, and the nature of experience. While organicism, panpsychism, and temporal flux are marbled throughout the work of David Bohm, further perspectives – particularly those of Henri Bergson and Alfred North Whitehead – are brought to bear in our opening session. The following day, Dr. Rupert Sheldrake brings his own unique perspective to some of these process-oriented questions, asking, “Is the Sun Conscious?”
Our second weekend puts forth multiple perspectives regarding Bohm’s proposals about holoflux and holomovement. These concepts – and what they imply – are foundational for any experiential sense of Bohm’s overall metaphysics. The various perspectives shared across two sessions draw from years of experimentation with the relevance of this aspect of Bohm’s work, within the actual movement of daily life.
Our third weekend is a bounty of dialogue. The group of ten women partaking in the Saturday session collectively bring hundreds of years of experience with various dialogical modes. The following day, Blackfoot elder Leroy Little Bear and multiple guests will once again share with us Leroy’s unique approach to dialogue, rooted in indigenous world views and sensibilities.

All sessions will last for approximately 2 hours, and will be held over zoom.us. The session structure may vary from speaker to speaker, but in general participants will have the opportunity to ask questions of the presenter and in some cases there will be breakaway discussion groups.
Each session will be hosted by a member of the Pari Center Team, to ensure that the call is running smoothly and assist anyone experiencing technical problems.
During the presentations, we ask participants to turn off their microphone to ensure better quality audio. For this reason, the host may mute a participant’s audio. This is not to silence a participant’s voice, but to ensure an overall good audio quality. If a participant would like to ask a question or make a contribution to the discussion, they can use the ‘raise your hand’ tool in the chat, and then are welcome to turn on their microphone.
We invite all participants to turn on their video camera, as we believe that seeing everyone creates an inclusive educational environment. However, if any participant is uncomfortable, they are free to turn off the camera.
All sessions will be recorded. The recordings will not include the possible breakout-room discussions, but only the speaker’s presentation, follow-up discussions and Q&A. If a participant does not feel comfortable being recorded, we invite that participant to turn off their video and audio throughout the session. These recordings are available to anyone who has purchased a ticket for an attended session, or for a session they have paid for but were unable to attend.
