Brain and Consciousness


Register Now $225


Are we primarily matter, or are we primarily consciousness? Is the body a machine that creates a conscious experience, or is conscious experience the result of the interaction of a field of consciousness with brain functioning?

This course explores concepts of mind and brain in science; identifies paradigms governing research into this area; and compares the understanding of mind, consciousness and the body in modern science and Maharishi Vedic Science. Recent research during Transcendental Meditation practice is reviewed in detail.
