Throughout history, mystics have claimed that in non-ordinary states of awareness, they are able to perceive that everything— the entire universe—is deeply interconnected.

Over the last century or so, as scientific ways of understanding reality have advanced, methods have been developed for studying these “mini-mystical” experiences—otherwise known as psychic or psi phenomena—in the laboratory.

Today, there are nearly 20 meta-analyses of different classes of psi experiments, comprising thousands of laboratory studies performed by scores of investigators and published in professional peer-reviewed journals around the world.

In this interactive workshop, Dr. Dean Radin, chief scientist at the Institute of Noetic Sciences, will present findings of the latest scientific research exploring psychic phenomena and the challenges they pose for the materialistic explanation of reality.

There will be time for Q&A and discussion during this exciting and unique opportunity to delve into the deepest mysteries of life.


Registration includes on-demand access to a recording of the workshop, which can be viewed for two weeks following the date it was presented.
