Mystics and Scientists The convergence of science and spirituality

Broadcast on August 29, 2017

We're honored to present this VIDEO recording from the Technology, Consciousness & the Future gathering in March 2015 – hosted by the Contemplative Alliance, a program of the Global Peace Initiative of Women.

Sufi teacher and author Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee opened this dialogue by sharing insights from his experience of the inner dimension "Plane of the Self" — a state of consciousness where everything is connected by light and everything is made of pure light. On this plane, there is no time... no past and no future. Everything is present. While in this state, Llewellyn saw how the internet has the ability to come alive as a network of human consciousness — where people can experience the Plane of the Self without spending years in meditation. The internet has not reached this state yet.  In order to access these technologies, people must have the right consciousness.

During this mind-blowing video recording, you'll discover:

  • That when we hold the core values of inclusivity and being of service to humanity, our consciousness can be aligned with these technologies & receive them as gifts from the inner world
  • How there is a dangerous dark side in the use of technology
  • Spiritual practices that teach us how to acknowledge & transform the darkness
