When Everything is Consciousness (Week 2) [ONLINE]

Bernardo Kastrup – 4 Week Exploration: When Everything is Consciousness
Bernardo is a true pioneer and a brilliant thinker” – Tomas
We’re excited to have Bernardo Kastrup returning for a deep dive into the implications, ramifications and incredible insights that emerge from the revolutionary idea that ‘everything is consciousness.’
This is a unique chance to engage with the West’s most prominent champion of this liberating view. As this understanding begins to filter through our psyches, some of life’s most fundamental questions become newly fascinating and freshly invigorating:
* What does this mean for our personal relationships, our dreams and our place in the natural world?
* How might we now understand death, trauma, health and sickness?
* What are the implications of psychedelic, out-of-body, mystical and near-death experiences?
How can this philosophy impart deep meaning and joy to how we live our day to day lives?
There will be time for discussion, comments and questions, with Bernardo catering the content to our evolving curiosity and understanding of the material.
We gather on zoom over four Tuesday evenings in a row, between 7pm and 8.30pm UK time, starting Tuesday 10th of November.
Joining this course includes free access to recordings of Course #1 ‘Breaking the Delusion of Materialism’. To get the most out of attending, please watch at least the first video from the first course, where you will be taken through the comprehensive scientific, philosophical and psychological evidence for this incredible philosophy.
Bernardo Kastrup’s work has been leading the modern renaissance of the philosophical position, ‘metaphysical idealism’ that reality is essentially mental, an appearance in ‘mind.’ Bernardo has a Ph.D. in philosophy (ontology, philosophy of mind) and another Ph.D. in computer engineering (reconfigurable computing, artificial intelligence). As a scientist, Bernardo has worked for the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) and the Philips Research Laboratories (where the ‘Casimir Effect‘ of Quantum Field Theory was discovered). Formulated in detail in many academic papers and books, his ideas have been featured on Scientific American, the Institute of Art and Ideas, the Blog of the American Philosophical Association and Big Think, among others. Bernardo’s most recent book is The Idea of the World: A multi-disciplinary argument for the mental nature of reality.
