Lifting the Veil: The Convergence of Science, Spirituality and Technology

What inspires our biggest innovations and transformations?  Could these AH-HA! moments have anything to do with the science of psychic phenomena?

Join us to explore the convergence between science, spirituality, and technology. We’ll consider this space’s immense potential for paradigm-shifting discoveries and transformative technologies.

Cassandra Vieten, PhD, a scientist and President of the Institute of the Noetic Sciences (IONS), leads us in a deep dive into the research on humankind’s most extraordinary experiences, breakthroughs, and capacities.

Her talk also examines some of the ways that we can use technology and our own thought process to make these AH-HA! moments more commonplace. And expands our inquiry to the edge and dig into IONS’ research into the science of what connects us and what that may mean for empirically verifying psychic phenomena.
