Opening Ceremonies & Keynote: A New Science of Life - 40 Years Later: A Conversation with Rupert Sheldrake

In this far-reaching keynote conversation with Robert Schwarz, Rupert Sheldrake will describe the concept of morphic resonance and its implications for energy psychology and other healing modalities. You will also learn about the changes in science since he first introduced this seminal concept in 1981, including the waning credibility of mechanistic materialism, which is important news for our field. You will discover fascinating paradigm changes that are on the horizon. Rupert will also explore the importance of consciousness studies, wider views of consciousness, and the role of consciousness in healing.



  1. Delineate at least 3 of the main concepts of morphic resonance.
  2. Describe at least 2 studies that support the hypothesis of morphic resonance.
  3. Identify at least 3 specific scientific findings that challenge the veracity of mechanistic materialism.
