Science confirms what Edgar Cayce knew— that our consciousness continues on after the death of our physical body, that thoughts are indeed things, that we can be precognitive of the future, and that we are individuals yet one with the whole.

Remote viewing researcher Stephan A. Schwartz, Dr. Larry Dossey, Dean Radin, PhD*, Mark Thurston, PhD, and others will explore these concepts and the science that confirms their reality—and what it means for the future of humankind. Looking toward that future, Dr. Schwartz will be conducting a remote viewing session with the audience in search of their vision of what life on Earth will be like in 2060, particularly in terms of what impact climate change may have on our population and cultures.

In spite of science’s amazing technological advances, we have barely begun to explore the deepest mystery of life—the fact that consciousness itself exists.
If you have ever wondered whether consciousness is generated by the brain or if it is a fundamental property of the universe, you will want to join us as we probe this uncharted territory of the human mind.

Explore new possibilities, break through the illusion of time, and understand the meaning of a truly interconnected, unlimited universal mind. Hear the latest scientific research and findings and understand what this means for you as part of a larger global consciousness.
Additional presenters to be announced.
