The belief in human immortality is ancient, rooted in human pre-history. In the modern age, however, the belief has fallen on hard times.
Concepts such as the soul, an enduring aspect of who we are, has largely been dismissed in scientific circles, and few scientists are bold enough to publicly profess a belief in the idea, even though they may privately adhere to it.
Yet, the situation is changing. New information suggests that there is an aspect of human consciousness that cannot be explained by the workings of the brain and body, and which may survive physical death. These developments are grounded in actual experiments, not philosophy.
As a result, many sense the emergence of a new picture of consciousness that is compatible with the age-old premise of immortality. Dr. Larry Dossey will discuss the developments, and their implications for science and religion.
Dr. Larry Dossey is an internal medicine physician, former Chief of Staff of Medical City Dallas Hospital, and former co-chairman of the Panel on Mind/Body Interventions, National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, National Institutes of Health. He is executive editor of the peer-previewed journal Explore: The Journal of Science and Healing. He is the author of twelve books on the role of consciousness and spirituality in health, which have been translated into languages around the world. His most recent book is ONE MIND: How Our Individual Mind Is Part of a Greater Consciousness and Why It Matters. He lectures around the world.
