Beyond Bohm 2024

Saturday July 13 – Sunday August 25, 2024

The Beyond Bohm 2024 series is oriented toward sharing unique and unusual perspectives that complement and amplify the work of David Bohm. Now in our fourth year, we are continuing that tradition with an array of new faces and presenters that we are especially excited about.

Part 1

Our first weekend begins with some “basics”: a roundtable discussion of a foundational Bohm text, Thought as a System. We are pleased to welcome members of the David Bohm Society into this discussion. The following day, we will hear from Dr. Elizabeth Henderson, whose 40 years of work in education suggest multiple perspectives for establishing wholeness in human beings, from their earliest years. Dr. Henderson uses autoethnography to help illustrate the possibilities and tensions facing practitioners as they try to help children build their interior worlds.

Our second weekend opens by taking us directly into the “deep time” geology of Dr. Marcia Bjornerud. Here we are asked to sense Earth through the fourth dimension of time, as a living, moving, process-oriented phenomenon. The next day, abstract artist Pam Harris shares with us the nature of her experience in contemplating scientific and philosophical questions, and how that experience translates to canvas.

Our third weekend continues the thread of artistic and scientific complementarity. Artist-engineer Cheryl Brant walks us through the unfolding of her own 40-year artistic process, and its culmination in questions of consciousness and the living world. Finally, closing out the series, Melissa Nelson (Turtle Mountain Chippewa / Métis) and friends will share indigenous perspectives on a variety of culturally-oriented issues and concerns. 

Part 2

After an introduction to Bohm’s physics, we will explore the relations between Russellian monism, William James’s radical empiricism and Bohm’s implicate order; some traditional and recent (e.g., Johanna Seibt’s) work on process philosophy and how it connects with Bohm’s ideas; the idea of quantum properties of matter as potentialities in Bohm’s early thought; the influence of Hegel on Bohm’s ideas about fragmentation and wholeness; and whether Bohm’s notion of active information is a candidate for a unifying notion
of information.

Every session will have openings for question / answer and discussion with presenters.

Tickets are available for the whole series, for three presentations of your choice, or for single presentations.
