Beyond the Brain is the world’s premier conference series exploring new research on whether and how consciousness and mind extend beyond the physical brain and body. This year’s event covers the power of intention, transpersonal psychology, consciousness in relation to the brain and the universe, lucid dreaming and out-of-body experiences.

“I regard consciousness as fundamental, matter is derivative from consciousness. We cannot get behind consciousness. There is no matter as such; it exists only by virtue of a force bringing the particle to vibration and holding it together in a minute solar system; we must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent mind. The mind is the matrix of all matter.”
Max Planck, 1918 Nobel Prize in Physics


Monday Workshop: Sacred Acoustics

Transcending the limitations of the human brain, and of the physical-material realm, allows us to recognize the fundamental truth of our underlying nature. Accessing this infinite awareness enables us to integrate the soul’s journey into our lives here on earth. Decisions, directions, choices and outcomes are transformed through this greater awareness. Through meditation, strengthened heart connections and soul perspective, we can learn to live beyond the illusion of the physical world and all its drama, knowing that the answers truly lie within us all.


Tickets to the workshop are not included in the basic conference rate, and are available as part of a conference bundle package or as separate tickets for those unable to attend the conference. If you wish to attend, please make sure you have registered with the appropriate ticket.
