Right now, tens of billions of neurons are working together in your brain so that you can read these words.

How does this happen?

For the longest time, consciousness was life’s greatest mystery; something we thought we’d never understand.

Now, recent advances in neuroscience, psychology and psychiatry are beginning to shed some light on the inner workings of this mystery, and the findings are nothing less than astounding.

In this series of talks, we’ll explore the fascinating science of consciousness; how it works, why it matters, and how understanding it, can improve your everyday experience of reality.

You’ll learn:

- Neuroscience, perception and hallucination; the latest cutting edge research in the neuroscience of consciousness, how consciousness emerges from the brain, and how changes to our brain can result in bizarre experiences of consciousness - Professor Anil Seth PhD

- Matter and consciousness; the relationship between matter and consciousness - are they two things, or one? How necessary are brains to consciousness? And why do we have consciousness at all? - Dr Iain McGilchrist, PhD (via exclusive live video link)

- Panpsychism and consciousness; the growing evidence for a ‘conscious universe’, how the world ‘out there’, including our planet, sun and solar system, may be associated with some form of mind and self organising system - Dr Rupert Sheldrake, PhD

You’ll learn how these insights can deepen your own understanding of the world we live in, and enhance your everyday perception of reality.
