2013 celebrates the 40th Anniversary of both the Scientific and Medical Network and our sister organisation, the Institute of Noetic Sciences. This biennial conference is also the tenth in the series, inaugurated with IONS President Willis Harman and Founder Edgar Mitchell in Cambridge in 1995. So it seems appropriate to come together again to explore a theme of mutual concern, Shifting Consciousness: Mind, Self and Brain in the 21st Century. Former IONS President Dr. Marilyn Schlitz is making a special trip to attend and present the research behind her new film, Death Makes Life Possible, which we will watch on Saturday evening. Dr. Mario Beauregard is coming from Canada to present a new model of consciousness that overcomes the shortcomings of conventional models that ignore the wider reaches and deeper aspects of human experience. Dr. Andrew Powell brings a lifetime of professional experience to show how we can acquire a more mature psychological outlook, while the priest and broadcaster Rev. Peter Owen Jones will share his thoughts on the future of well being. Dr. Dean Radin will join us by Skype to present his latest research on parallels between photons and humans, and Dr. Kate Anthony will bring us right up to date on trends affecting self and identity in the social media. This landmark conference is not to be missed, and we greatly look forward to your participation!

The Scientific and Medical Network was founded in George Blaker, Dr. Patrick Shackleton, Dr. Peter Leggett, and Sir Kelvin Spencer. The founders believed that neither orthodox religion nor conventional science was sufficient to answer pressing questions about human existence and the cosmos, and that new ways of thinking were needed. The Network provides interdisciplinary education exploring the frontiers of science, consciousness, and spirituality. It draws on a worldwide community of scientists, doctors, psychologists, engineers, philosophers, and theologians to provide events, publications, and courses that link insights from the spiritual traditions and the arts, with the study and application of science and medicine.
The Network assumes that there are many ways of knowing the world and ourselves, of which science is just one, albeit one highly effective and reliable, way of gaining knowledge. In order to do justice to the full spectrum of human experience and the complexity of the cosmos, it encourages dialogue and interaction between the spiritual, the scientific, the philosophical, and the arts in open-minded enquiry.
