Dr Rupert Sheldrake – The Mind Beyond the Brain: Measurable Effects of Attention and Intention at a Distance via ZOOM

8 September, 2020.7:30 pm-9:00 pm

Dr Rupert Sheldrake discusses the mind beyond the brain at the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Centre

Tuesday Talks

The Mind Beyond the Brain: Measurable Effects of Attention and Intention at a Distance

Tuesday 8th September 2020. 7.30pm until 9.00pm. £5 via Zoom.


We have been brought up to believe that minds are located inside heads.  But there are good reasons for thinking that this view is much too limited.  People can influence others at a distance just by looking at them, even if they look from behind and if all sensory clues are eliminated.  Animals can be affected by human looks, and vice versa.  People’s intentions can also be detected telepathically by animals from miles away.  Recent tests have also shown that some people can tell who is calling them before they pick up the phone.  Our minds seem to extend out beyond our brains both through attention and intention.


Please join us at 7.30PM on Tuesday the 8th of September via ZOOM. Purchase a ticket below and you will receive an email with access. Save money by purchasing an autumn season pass here and get access to our full autumn programme.
