Infinite Potential: A Filmmaker’s Journey into the World of David Bohm

July 12 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm CEST
Online
29€ – 279€

with Paul Howard  July 12 at 18:00 (CEST) for a 2-hour live session  Having just completed a film on David Bohm’s life, his incredible work in physics, philosophy and the nature of consciousness, the question that Paul asked himself was, how come I never before heard about this extraordinary man and his work? He was the man Einstein called his ‘spiritual son’ and the Dalai Lama his ‘science guru,’ so why is it that the world hardly knows his name? Paul…

David Bohm in the 1940s: Science, Scientific Style and Political Engagement

July 18 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm CEST
Online
29€ – 279€

with Olival Freire Jr.  July 18 at 18:00 (CEST) for a 2-hour live session  When David Bohm arrived in California in the early 1940s for graduate studies he had already consolidated two intellectual trends which would characterize his whole life. He knew what kind of physics he enjoyed working on; while he was attracted to theoretical physics and had exhibited skills in mathematics, he had no patience for the solving problem style of physics he had found at Caltech. Instead…

Quantum Trajectories and the Nature of Wholeness in David Bohm’s Quantum Theory

How does the Classical World Emerge from the Implicate Order?

July 25 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm CEST
Online
29€ – 279€

with Basil Hiley  July 25 at 18:00 (CEST) for a 2-hour live session  Experimental evidence clearly shows classical physics is wrong.  Sure, it works at the classical level, but there is some deeper order necessary to understand the new physics. Nevertheless this deeper process must approximate to the macroscopic world we experience.  David Bohm suggested that the algebraic quantum formalism should be understood in terms of the implicate order. For him this was the order that we directly perceive and from…

Laozi and the Implicate Order: Wholeness in Daoism and Quantum Physics

July 26 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm CEST
Online
29€ – 279€

with Shantena Augusto Sabbadini  July 26 at 18:00 (CEST) for a 2-hour live session  Bohm's notion of implicate order resonates with the Eastern notion of Dao. Dao is the invisible current that brings the 'ten thousand things' to manifestation, but it is also described as the attractor that calls them back to return to their root, to no-thingness, to the unmanifest. And ultimately these two states, the manifest, the explicate, that which can be named, and the unmanifest, the implicate,…

Recovering Coherency in Politics and Society through Dialogue

August 2 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm CEST
Online
29€ – 279€

with Glenn Parry  August 2 at 18:00 (CEST) for a 2-hour live session  The main reason we are divided in politics is not only polarization between parties, or fragmentation within the parties, but because of how we think. We tend to think in partial fragments, not in contextual wholes. David Bohm was keenly aware of this. Bohm was also aware that this lack of coherency was not necessarily the case in Indigenous cultures that have a history of shared meaning…

Insight and Illusion in Bohmian Psychology

August 8 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm CEST
Online
29€ – 279€

with David Moody  August 8 at 18:00 (CEST) for a 2-hour live session  David Bohm is known primarily for his work in physics and cosmology, but his contributions to the field of psychology were equally profound and significant. His understanding of the nature and dynamic structure of consciousness, and their relevance to the ordinary affairs of daily life, had several sources. His views were shaped in part by his experience with members of the scientific community and his disillusionment with…

Online
29€ – 279€

with Beth Macy  August 15 at 9:00am PDT  | 12:00pm EDT  |  6:00pm CEST  for a 2-hour live session  How is it that one of the world’s most gifted and innovative theoretical physicists would stray from his primary calling of uncovering the secrets of the universe?  What so captivated his interest that, with that same intense creativity brought to his science, he would divert his exploration to uncovering the basis of human thought and the roots of social discord?  Using David Bohm’s own words and those of his associates,…
