Embodiment: How The Outside World Affects The Inside, Elissa Epel

Published on Feb 3, 2014

If holding a warm mug can make you perceive someone as warmer, what else might be
affecting our mental and physical state that we are not aware of?

There is a growing field of empirically validated demonstrations of embodiment, broadly defined here as the way the world affects us, and our biological functioning,

I will describe examples of embodiment at different levels, including how perceptions and cognitions affect physiology, the mind body connection, and how relationships between people, shape physiology. There will be an interactive discussion of possible mechanisms.

Fearless Science, Cassandra Vieten

Published on Feb 6, 2014

The frontier of science is the investigation of consciousness–in particular, the nonlocal,causal, and nondual aspects of consciousness. This cutting edge of science, far from being fringe, is investigating the most centrally important questions of our time. And yet, these controversial topics are often challenged as being “unscientific” by the mainstream scientific community. In fact, there are no unscientific topics. The scientific endeavor should not be held back by limitations in our imagination and ingenuity. A scientist, and CEO and President of the Institute of Noetic Sciences, Cassandra Vieten will discuss the frontiers of scientific investigation of nonduality and consciousness.

President of the Institute of Noetic Sciences
Cassandra Vieten, PhD, is a licensed clinical psychologist, President of the Institute of Noetic Sciences, Scientist at California Pacific Medical Center Research Institute, and Faculty Member/Psychologist at California Pacific Medical Center, Department of Psychiatry. She received her PhD in clinical psychology at the California Institute of Integral Studies. She completed her pre- and post-doctoral research training at UCSF, working primarily on the biological and psychological underpinnings of addiction and alcoholism. Cassandra is co-author of Living Deeply: The Art and Science of Transformation in Everyday Life and author of Mindful Motherhood: Practical Tools for Staying Sane During Pregnancy and Your Child’s First Year.

The More Beautiful World Our Hearts Know Is Possible (Sacred Activism) by Charles Eisenstein [Updated Feb 11, 2014]

Pub Date: Nov 5 2013

In a time of social and ecological crisis, what can we as individuals do to make the world a better place? This inspirational and thought-provoking book serves as an empowering antidote to the cynicism, frustration, paralysis, and overwhelm so many of us are feeling, replacing it with a grounding reminder of what’s true: we are all connected, and our small, personal choices bear unsuspected transformational power. By fully embracing and practicing this principle of interconnectedness—called interbeing—we become more effective agents of change and have a stronger positive influence on the world.

Throughout the book, Eisenstein relates real-life stories showing how small, individual acts of courage, kindness, and self-trust can change our culture’s guiding narrative of separation, which, he shows, has generated the present planetary crisis. He brings to conscious awareness a deep wisdom we all innately know: until we get our selves in order, any action we take—no matter how good our intentions—will ultimately be wrongheaded and wronghearted. Above all, Eisenstein invites us to embrace a radically different understanding of cause and effect, sounding a clarion call to surrender our old worldview of separation, so that we can finally create the more beautiful world our hearts know is possible.

With chapters covering separation, interbeing, despair, hope, pain, pleasure, consciousness, and many more, the book invites us to let the old Story of Separation fall away so that we can stand firmly in a Story of Interbeing.
