Science, Ecology & Spiritual Practices

July 27-31, 2022 (PDT)

People who have regular spiritual practices tend to live healthier, longer, more content lives. Science sheds new light on many spiritual practices, including pilgrimages, reconnecting with the living world, meditation, chanting, prayer, and rites of passage. Explore the entanglements between science and spirituality in a beautiful, wild setting.

In this program, we spend part of our time outdoors – in the garden, seashore and forest – connecting with the world around us and bringing together ideas with direct intuitive experience. We explore scientific and spiritual traditions through discussion, play, singing, listening, looking, thinking, and celebration. We reflect on our connections with our ancestors, human and non-human, and with the collective memory on which we all draw.

IONS Fellow Dr. Rupert Sheldrake will show how his hypothesis of morphic resonance enables us to understand rituals and provides a new interpretation of memory and the survival of bodily death. Merlin will explore the ways that a deeper understanding of symbiotic relationships – between ourselves, fungi, plants, bacteria, and others – can change our understanding the planet on which we live, and the ways that we think, feel, and behave. Cosmo Sheldrake will lead us in singing and musical celebration.
