Rupert Sheldrake in Conversation
With Lance Butler
Tuesday 20th April 2021. 7.30pm until 9.00pm. £5 online via ZOOM.
Dr Rupert Sheldrake interviewed by Prof. Lance Butler
Rupert Sheldrake is one of the pioneers of the modern movement towards a more fruitful relationship between science and spirituality. He has written extensively in the field of biology but always from a broad holistic position. More recently he has been involved in making explicit the links between mainstream science, spirit and everyday life. His most recent books, Science and Spiritual Practice (2018) and Ways to Go Beyond (2019) are models of this integration. His consistent position is now itself becoming widely recognised as the world tries to look beyond a merely materialist world view.
