Consciousness & Meditation: A Deep Dive With Rupert Sheldrake, Matthew Fox, & Vuyi Qubeka
A Deep Dive into Consciousness & Meditation with Rupert Sheldrake (scientist, biologist and author best known for his hypothesis of morphic resonance), Matthew Fox (spiritual theologian, an Episcopal priest and an activist for gender justice and eco-justice), Vuyi Qubeka (multidimensional storyteller, sangoma (healer) and artist), Satish Kumar (peace activist, pilgrim and author) & Sam Gandy (Psychedelic researcher, Beckley Foundation and Imperial College London)
If we haven’t cultivated mindfulness in our attention, how do we ever expect to break out of the cycle of crises response? Meditative practices are instrumental to catalysing transformative and harmonious change on both a personal and collective level. Through deepening our awareness we can ensure we do not recreate the same structures that got us into this mess in the first place. Through mindfulness and meditation we can deepen our ecological connection and cultivate the clarity we need to navigate these times of uncertainty and change.
For month 7 we are exploring consciousness, the science of spiritual practices and meditation.

“Matthew Fox might well be the most creative, the most comprehensive, surely the most challenging religious-spiritual teacher in America . He has the scholarship, the imagination, the courage, the writing skill to fulfill this role at a time when the more official Christian theological traditions are having difficulty in establishing any vital contact with either the spiritual possibilities of the present or with their own most creative spiritual traditions of the past….He has, it seems, created a new mythic context for leading us out of our contemporary religious and spiritual confusion into a new clarity of mind and peace of soul, by affirming rather than abandoning any of our traditional beliefs.” Thomas Berry
