The Beyond the Brain conference series

Beyond the Brain is the world’s premier conference series exploring research on whether and how consciousness and mind extend beyond the physical brain and body. The conferences were initiated at St John’s College, Cambridge in 1995, by the Scientific & Medical Network (SMN) with the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS). Over the years, we have covered a wide range of topics that cover the frontiers of consciousness research.

This year we are collaborating with the Alef Trust, Watkins Books and The Academy for the Advancement of Postmaterialist Sciences (AAPS) to explore science and spiritual practices, the boundary between neuroscience and mystical experience, transpersonal psychology, psychedelics and the brain, after-death communication, and consciousness in relation to the brain and the universe.
