Science as a Spiritual Practice, Julia Mossbridge

Video with

As a scientist compelled to investigate time and consciousness, I have learned that what attracts me to science as a discipline is what attracts many mystical seekers to their paths. In this talk, I will discuss the process of surrendering and not knowing the answer, posing a question, listening to the answer, and shifting our behavior in response to the answer as the basic process of science — and the parallels to spiritual practice will be made clear. In addition, I will ask for a discussion of ways in which we can shift science education toward teaching science as a spiritual practice, and I hope we will all come away with useful insights about this shift.
