About Us

The Scientific & Medical Network

The Scientific & Medical Network

The Network is devoted to the emergence of a more enlightened world – a world in which the wisdom of spirituality and the thoughtfulness of philosophy balance the power of science and technology.

We recognise that our world is still plagued by deep problems and enduring conflicts. Many of these are caused by dogmatic, superstitious or ill-informed worldviews. However, we believe that individuals and societies can transform themselves.  The key is learning to integrate evidence-based science, born of rational philosophy, with the love and inner peace cultivated by spiritual practice. The Network is a worldwide community of professionals dedicated to this transformative task.

We invite you to join us in co-creating a paradigm shift to bring truth, beauty, health and well-being into harmony, and so help heal our fractured culture.  Membership is open to all who are sympathetic to our mission, aims and values.

Beyond the Brain

The interdisciplinary Beyond the Brain conferences were initiated with Willis Harman and Edgar Mitchell of the Institute of Noetic Sciences at St John’s College, Cambridge in 1995. Over the years we have covered a wide range of topics and this year we are taking a different approach by inviting four partners to join us and making the conference non-residential in London. On Friday evening, however, we will be holding the UK premiere of Member Amit Biswas’ award-winning film The Bridge.

Each partner has taken responsibility for one session covering their particular area of consciousness research. All our speakers are at their respective cutting edges and are constantly devising new and innovative research strategies to probe the nature of consciousness.

Attendees will have their minds stretched and their hearts warmed at this exciting landmark event and be able to network with like-minded people. This landmark conference is not to be missed, and we greatly look forward to your participation!
