INTERNATIONAL FORUM ON CONSCIOUSNESS
Conscious Evolution: Awakening Through Our Senses
May 18-19, 2017
Coordinated by Promega Corporation and the BTC Institute, the International Consciousness Forum offers a lively two days of information-sharing and discussion regarding important - and often challenging - topics. For the past seven years, the Forum has focused on exploring dimensions of consciousness.
This has involved looking into various realms, pushing the envelope at times, while remaining centered on engaging our audience and our speakers. We have been guided through consciousness topics, including creativity, near death, entheogens, intelligence in nature, and business evolution.
As we continue to examine the facets of consciousness, in 2017 we will explore our interpretation of the world through our senses. How might altering our awareness of sensory inputs create a change in our perception of reality and expand consciousness in positive directions for ourselves and others?
Conscious Evolution: Awakening Through Our Senses is an invitation to hear state-of-the-art presentations AND to engage in direct sensory experience – for example, through virtual reality, movement, sound and visuals, as well as the tastes and aromas provided by an outstanding culinary team.
