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, this year we explore the newest emerging technologies for looking into the phenomenon of consciousness, e.g., sleep, wakefulness, altered states, focused attention, and coma. How might our ability to better measure consciousness create opportunities to improve human function, resolve disease states, and keep the brain/mind healthier throughout all stages of life?

The registration fee is $265.  For an additional $90, you can join a presenter’s table (8-10 participants) for dinner at the Feynman center on Thursday evening of the forum. Please use the link in the header above to register and complete payment. If you’re already registered AND just need to pay, please use our general payment form.
