Professor Davor Džalto called to give lecture at 2017 Science and Non-Duality conference
Science and Nonduality provides a forum where preeminent scientists, philosophers, teachers, artists and a large, international community gather to explore and advance the new paradigm emerging in spirituality, that is both grounded in cutting-edge science and consistent with the ancient wisdom of nonduality — the deep understanding of the interconnectedness of life.
Ultimately, SAND is a playground where people come together to explore and share insights or simply reflect on what is emerging in consciousness. Knowing defines life, not-knowing reminds us of the mystery and perfection of each and every moment. At SAND, you are invited to stop resisting what is happening right now and surrender to the not-knowingness. Let life and this amazing mystery unfold!
Professor Džalto is one of 13 academic speakers invited to lecture at SAND17 Italy, the annual SAND retreat, to be held in Titignano Castle, Italy between the 8th and 14th August 2017.
The conference is open for registration and is described thus:
Join Science and Nonduality Conference (SAND) for a 6-day immersive experience where leading scientists, spiritual teachers and artists gather to explore a new understanding of who we really are, both as individuals and as a society.
At SAND we explore a new relationship to spirituality, free from religious dogma, based on timeless wisdom traditions, informed by cutting-edge science, and grounded in our own direct experience. Join us for 6 days gathering which includes science talks, satsang, excellent speakers from multidisciplinary perspectives, dance, concerts, experiential workshops and an Italian cuisine fit for royalty.
