David Bohm’s work has been highly influential in the world of physics, but his philosophical ideas crossed multiple disciplines with a holistic approach. This sequence of presentations will follow some of these ideas, and explore new threads of inquiry inspired by Bohm:
How can artistic expression and philosophical inquiry complement one another? What is the role of imagination in exploring the polarity between participatory consciousness and literal thought? What can we learn from Indigenous cultures about enfoldment and unfoldment in the natural order? Can Bohm’s insight into participatory understanding, along with Buddhist principles, point the way through our collective human sorrow to what may lie beyond? What does the lineage of those who influenced Bohm’s dialogue tell us about the transmission and evolution of participative consciousness in today’s world?
Each of these questions will be addressed in this six-part sequence of presentations. We hope you can join us as we attempt to stand on Bohm’s shoulders and peer into the future.
All sessions will be in ’roundtable’ format, with each having a core group of guest presenters in conversation and dialogue. In most case, the presentations will be followed 30 minutes of discussion and Q & A with all those attending the session. In total, we have more than 25 guest presenters bringing their insights to ‘Beyond Bohm, Part 2.’
