Pari Center Online Series

November 4 – 19, 2023

9:00am PST | 12:00pm EST | 5:00pm GMT  |  6:00pm CET

6-two-hour sessions every Saturday and Sunday

All sessions are live and you will be sent the RECORDING.

Across the broad span of wisdom traditions, one encounter is of key significance: some direct access or contact with the ground of being.

Even in this secular age, dominated as we are by the materialistic, reductionist paradigm of western science, these transcendent experiences still occur, even amongst members of the scientific community.

While this experience is always inexpressible in detail, it commonly involves an overwhelming feeling of wholeness, a blurring of the line between subject and object, a melting away of divisions and an immersion in a state of participatory  consciousness.

If the underlying ground of reality is an inexpressible whole, beyond aspects and distinctions, we might expect some echo of this to emerge in our scientific investigations. David Bohm certainly had this intuition, which coloured his approach to quantum theory especially and science and philosophy more generally.

In this series of workshops, we will investigate the extent to which modern science has encountered aspects of wholeness, non-local consciousness and the subject-object distinction. We will also consider what a post-reductionist science might look like, drawing on the experiences of indigenous cultures.

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.
