In this lecture, Rupert Sheldrake will show how science itself is now transcending the materialist philosophy and pointing toward a new sense of a living world. The cosmos is no longer like a machine running down; it is more like a developing organism with an inherent memory, and so is our planet, Gaia.
These paradigm shifts in the sciences shed a new light on spiritual practices like meditation, rituals, pilgrimage and visiting holy places.
