Yes – it’s that time of year again folks. What time is it? Time for the Science and Nonduality Conference in California (starting this week). SAND is one of the best yearly gatherings and this will mark its sixth year. This years theme is “The Nature of Perception” — an exploration of the phenomena of perception from the perspective of modern science, ancient traditions, philosophy, phenomenology and direct experience.
- At SAND13 there will be two days of pre-conference workshops: Wednesday Oct. 23rd & Thursday Oct. 24th.
- Each pre-conference workshop will last four hours & led by an individual presenter.
- The main conference will start on Thursday Oct. 24th at 7pm & will continue until Sunday Oct. 27th 6pm.
- There will be a closing dinner with some of the speakers, organizers & the participants Sunday evening.
What is SAND all about?
The Science and Nonduality conference is a place where preeminent scientists, philosophers, teachers, artists and a large, international community gather to explore and advance the new paradigm emerging in spirituality, that is both grounded in cutting-edge science and consistent with the ancient wisdom of nonduality — the deep understanding of the interconnectedness of life. SAND honors and nurtures the exploration and experience of nonduality as a pathway to greater wisdom and well being in the context of the unique challenges of the 21st century
Ultimately, SAND is a playground where people come together to explore and share insights or simply reflect on what is emerging in consciousness. Knowing defines life, not-knowing reminds us of the mystery and perfection of each and every moment. At SAND, you are invited to stop resisting what is happening right now and surrender to the not-knowingness. Let life and this amazing mystery unfold!
*Science and Nonduality is now a non for profit organization and your support goes directly towards continuing the development and expansion of the SAND community and vision.
