Welcome to Beyond the Brain 2022

This is the 17th event in the world’s premier conference series exploring new research on whether and how consciousness and mind extend beyond the physical brain and body.

Consciousness is one of the hottest topics in science, which is why we established the interdisciplinary Beyond the Brain conference series with Willis Harman and Edgar Mitchell of the Institute of Noetic Sciences at St John’s College, Cambridge in 1995. The conferences all explore the frontiers of consciousness research beyond the limits of scientific materialism.

We are hosting this year’s event in partnership with two other organisations active in the field: the Institute of Noetic Sciences, and the Alef Trust, with whom we collaborate on their MSc in Transpersonal Psychology and Consciousness Studies.

Our speakers are all at the cutting edges of their fields and will be discussing innovative research strategies to probe the nature of consciousness. You will gain a vital overview and a deeper understanding of how consciousness research is expanding the horizons of science. This mind-stretching conference is not to be missed, and we greatly look forward to your participation!
