Can a consciousness-based approach to life heal social divisions and promote life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness?
We live in a time when societies are overrun with division and strife. Developing higher states of consciousness not only helps individuals, but it benefits society as a whole. Peer-reviewed research has shown that a non-ideological, consciousness-based approach to life can heal social divisions. Apart from the practical benefits of improving cooperation and reducing fatalities, this research demonstrates that consciousness has field-like qualities and is primary to matter.
Join us for a fascinating ConnectIONS Live webinar on January 20th, at 11 AM PST, when Barry Spivack will be talking about this thrilling research. As he sees it, the values of freedom, happiness and truth have their source in the least excited state of human consciousness. With the development of higher states of consciousness, or what is sometimes called self-realization, these values will be enhanced both in individual and public life.
