Join Dean Radin for a retreat in the Bahamas with the Sivananda Ashram. Ancient Yogic texts such as Patanjali's Yoga Sutras, describe extraordinary mental powers, or siddhis, associated with advanced meditative practice, such as telepathy, precognition, clairvoyance, and psychokinesis. These phenomena do not fit easily into the modern scientific worldview, and as such, are often dismissed as fantasy. However, for over a century, scientists have been testing the siddhis and have reached scientific proof of their existence.
Dean Radin, PhD, is Senior Scientist at the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) and Adjunct Faculty in the Department of Psychology at Sonoma State University. Experimentally probing the far reaches of human consciousness for decades, principally hypnosis and psychic (or "psi") phenomena, he has concluded that some psychic abilities are genuine, and as such, there are important aspects of the prevailing scientific worldview that are seriously incomplete.
