Science of the Mind provides a forum for those interested in the foundations of awareness: the structure of the brain, the brain/mind connection, awareness, consciousness, cognition, language, memory, learning, interior experience, altered states, and illusion. Where does "brain" end and "mind" begin? How can we understand consciousness and self-awareness? Our discussions may also touch on practices such as meditation and yoga, although the focus of the group is not metaphysics. Join other "curious scientists" to unravel the mysteries of the mind and make new friends over a great cup of coffee or glass of wine.
Our Seattle area gatherings include: public events, lectures, special talks, film viewings, book group discussions, and other events throughout the year. Meetups occur in various venues, like the UW, Seattle Town Hall, public libraries, private homes, as well as at cafes and restaurants for any desired pre or post-event discussions. The group is not related to Ernest Holmes or "Science of Mind."
Anyone is welcomed to suggest a meetup idea or topic pertaining to scientific or philosophical topics related to the mind, with or without an event date and location. RSVP for events you would like to attend and 'RSVP' your interest to support topics that might not yet have a date/location. In between meetups, feel free to contact any of the organizers listed with your thoughts or begin a conversation on the Discussion Board.
