Apollo 14 Astronaut Dr. Edgar D. Mitchell
Headlines Consciousness Conference at A.R.E. Headquarters
in Virginia Beach

Edgar D.Mitchell ScDVirginia Beach, Va. – On January 31, 1971, Apollo 14 lifted off from Cape Kennedy, and three days later Edgar Mitchell and Alan Shepard walked on the surface of the moon. As amazing as this feat was, for Mitchell, the most extraordinary journey was yet to come. As he plunged toward earth through the vastness of space, Mitchell became engulfed by “a sense of universal connectedness”—a profound sense that he and the beings on the planet below were connected as part of a deliberate design—and that the cosmos itself was somehow conscious. The experience changed Mitchell’s life in ways he could never have anticipated, and he has devoted the past 40 years to studying human consciousness and psychic and paranormal phenomena in the search for a common ground between science and spirit. He is bringing that message to Edgar Cayce’s A.R.E. for the new Breakthroughs to a New Consciousness: Science, Spirituality, and the Limitless Mind Conference from March 27-29, 2015.

Dr. Edgar D. Mitchell, the sixth man to walk on the moon with the Apollo 14 mission, had a life- changing experience that later lead him to found the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS), which sponsors research into the nature of consciousness. Dr. Mitchell’s extraordinary career includes degrees from several universities, including a ScD from Embry-Riddle University. The recipient of many awards and honors including the Presidential Medal of Freedom, he was a nominee for the Nobel Peace Prize in 2005. He is the author of Psychic Exploration and The Way of the Explorer, as well as dozens of articles in both professional and popular periodicals.
