Best-selling author, Researcher and Lecturer
For centuries, Western culture has taught us to think of ourselves as individuals. Competition, assumed to be the most fundamental of human urges, forms the basis of our society, our economy, and most of our relationships. But we are living a lie. All the crises we face today, including the financial recession, have occurred precisely because the lives we’ve chosen to lead are based on competition and are not consistent with our truest nature as givers and sharers. Pulling together a vast array of cutting edge scientific discovery, Lynne demonstrates that we are in constant relationship with everything and everyone. All living things succeed and prosper only when they see themselves as part of a greater whole, she says, and fully embrace the space between us; the relationship itself. The Bond.
In addition to providing a new narrative for our lives, Lynne also provides the first roadmap of how to live according to this new scientific story – a prescription for living based on cooperation and partnership. Lynne offers unique information about how to retrain ourselves to see the world from a more holistic perspective, to enjoy more cooperative relationships – even across the deepest divides – to enjoy more united social groups, and to discover a new and authentic purpose. During her talk you will experience the power of the Bond firsthand with a demonstration of powerful techniques that transform a small group of strangers into a super-organism – and a potent healing circle. Her message is inspiring and empowering: by simple changes of perspective and action locally, each of us can become a major game changer, both to both transform our culture and to move out of crisis, individually and collectively.
SAND 2011 is a journey and exploration of the nature of awareness from the perspective of modern science, ancient traditions, philosophy, phenomenology, psychology and direct experience. Hear presentations of world-renowned quantum physicists, scientists, lecturers and authors like John Hagelin, Stanislav Grof, Lynne McTaggart, Fred Alan Wolf, Menas Kafatos, Gangaji, Rupert Spira, David Peat, Dean Radin, Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee, Jeff Foster and many more, over this four-day conference.
The theme which we will be exploring this year is Time. What is time and does it really exist? Linear, nonlinear time, eternal now, infinity… SAND 2011 will be an exploration of the concept and paradox of time from the perspective of modern science, ancient traditions, philosophy, phenomenology, psychology and of course direct experience.
Lynne McTaggart, one of the preeminent spokespersons on consciousness, the new physics and the science of spirituality, is the award-winning journalist and author of six books, including the worldwide bestsellers The Field and The Intention Experiment. As editorial director of What Doctors Don't Tell You (www.wddty.com), she also publishes one of the world's most highly praised health newsletters and runs highly popular health and spirituality teleconferences and workshops.
Lynne is also the architect of the Intention Experiments, a web-based 'global laboratory', involving an international consortium of prestigious scientists and thousands of people in countries around the world testing the power of intention to heal the world.
Single entity that relates space and time in a four-dimensional structure, postulated by Albert Einstein in his theories of relativity. In the Newtonian universe it was supposed that there was no connection between space and time. Space was thought to be a flat, three-dimensional arrangement of all possible point locations, which could be expressed by Cartesian coordinates; time was viewed as an independent one-dimensional concept. Einstein showed that a complete description of relative motion requires equations that include time as well as the three spatial dimensions. He also showed that space-time is curved, which allowed him to account for gravitation in his general theory of relativity.
