Hyatt Regency La Jolla Room: Mykonos A

Faculty will share the evidence and practice surrounding the role of consciousness in the healing process, and how expanding our understandings of the role of consciousness in healing is creating paradigm shifts in areas within science, medicine, and technology. Participants will explore the trajectory of this paradigm shift via discussion of scientific evidence from disciplines including psychoneuroimmunology, placebo, and bioelectromagnetics, as well as from the broader discipline of biofield science. Practical and experiential consciousness-based learning will also be shared through meditative and biofield sensing and balancing exercises. The audience will be invited to share their experiences and perspectives on how exploring consciousness both intellectually and experientially may lead to improved wellness on personal as well as planetary levels.

This is a pre-conference workshop. You can join on-site at no additional cost. For questions, please contact
