Invited Presenters among other:Prof. Amit Goswami, is professor emeritus in the physics department of the University of Oregon. He is a pioneer of the new paradigm of science called science within consciousness. In his book "The Self-Aware Universe", he solved the quantum measurement problem paving the path to a new paradigm of science based on the primacy of consciousness. In his most recent book The Quantum Doctor he integrates conventional and alternative medicine.

Consciousness: The New Paradigm
A fundamental problem of quantum physics is the quantum measurement problem: how quantum possibilities become actual events of our experience. I show that a proper resolution
of this problem leads to a paradigm shift in science from the primacy of matter to the primacy
of consciouness. after a brief examination of the experimental data in support of the new paradigm
workshop 1 ½ hour
Quantum activism: using the transformative aspects of quantum physics for self and society
Quantum physics is paving for us the way to a new science based on the primacy of consciousness. In the new science, material interactions (upward causation) produce quantum possibilities and conscious choise (downward causation) reduce the possibilities to actual events of conscious experience.
Downward causation comes with three signatures: nonlocality, discontinuity and tangled hierarchy. Only through understanding and practice of these three signature aspects, can we reclaim our ability for downward causation. This leads us to a new kind of activism ? quantum activism which consist of using these quantum aspects to transform ourselves and our societies. I will touch upon right thinking, right living, right action, and right livelihood for a quantum activist. The workshop is both intellectual and experiential.
