Consciousness beyond the Brain

Certificate Course organized by the ECR-Institute (Berlin) and hosted by the Dev Sanskriti University (Haridvar)

This webinar will discuss existential questions of consciousness that arise when one allows for the possibility that consciousness exists beyond matter and the brain. What scientific evidence is there for this and what is the significance of these findings for human life?
The lectures will take place mainly on Thursday afternoon 5pm to 6.30 pm CET. Participants will be awarded a certificate by the Dev Sanskrity University, Haridwar (India). All lectures will be held in English language.
