CONSCIOUSNESS STUDIES COURSE OUTLINE
Many people would consider our level of consciousness to be a defining feature of our
species and yet mainstream science does not fully understand what consciousness is or exactly how it comes about.
We will consider the nature of human consciousness from the perspective of some cutting edge 'non reductionist' scientific research.
Course material for discussion will be delivered by YouTube, DVDs, CDs at the beginning of each session and for those interested, associated reading material will be suggested. Each session culminates with a group discussion about the material viewed.
Our sessions will explore some of the latest scientific research into various aspects and anomalies of human consciousness, covering such topics as:
Group members would be encouraged to share relevant personal experiences within a safe environment.
- Evidence that human consciousness is 'more than we think it is' ....as follows:
- Near death experiences.
- Out of body experiences.
- Past life and between lives regression.
- Ghosts and apparitions.
- Angels and poltergeists.
- Remote viewing....telepathy....precognition
- Mediumship and clairvoyance.
- Energetic healing, spontaneous remission of disease,the power of intention, prayer.
- Contemporary mystical experiences (The Alistair Hardy Society)
- Is consciousness generated within the brain or is it transmitted by the brain?
- Does consciousness die with the brain...or can it exist independently of the brain?
- Is there any evidence for an afterlife...if so what could we expect ?
- Is there any correlation concerning the nature of consciousness between science and
philosophical /spiritual traditions.
- Did consciousness arise from matter ....or is consciousness perhaps primary?
- Any other associated topics of interest to the group.
