San Diego, CA (PRWEB) January 24, 2012
Deepak Chopra and friends are bringing together leaders from the often disparate realms of science and spirituality for three days of conversation on science and consciousness. The event will explore responsible leadership, environmental sustainability, peace and justice, world transformation, social and economic challenges, and more. The event will end with a summarization of the problems and explorations of creative solutions.
Presented by the Chopra Foundation, this Third Annual International Sages and Scientists Symposium, being held from March 3 to 5, 2012 at La Costa Resort and Spa in Carlsbad, California, will address some of the most urgent questions facing our future evolution, including:
- Are we in the midst of a major paradigm shift in science?
- Is there an ultimate reality?
- Does consciousness conceive, govern, construct and become the physical universe?
- Is the universe becoming self aware in the human nervous system?
- Is the next stage of human development conscious evolution?
- Do we have the ability to influence the future evolution of the cosmos?
- How does our understanding of consciousness as pure potentiality enhance our capacity for intuition, creativity, conscious choice making, healing, and the awakening of dormant potentials such as non-local communication and non-local sensory experience?
- How does our understanding of consciousness also enhance our capacity for total well being—physical, emotional, spiritual, social, community, financial and ecological)?
“If you find the above questions intriguing, you are most welcome to join me and my colleagues in deep dialogue about our emerging future,” said Deepak Chopra, founder of the Chopra Foundation. “Everything will be examined from the perspectives of both sages and scientists with the shared goal of finding common ground.
