The Meditative Brain, a Challenge to the Digital Revolution
Director: Dr José Foglia MD
"The Meditating Brain, a Challenge of the Digital Revolution" is a seminar about our nervous system, how our brain processes information and creates our reality. We attempt to bridge science and philosophy, and some of the subjects studied by Theosophy in interactive discussions.
GENERAL INFO ABOUT THE SCHOOL OF THE WISDOM
The School of the Wisdom aims at bringing each student to survey life ‘from the centre’, which is intuitive awareness. An intense sense of Life must always accompany every true student. There can be no Wisdom without an ever-increasing sense of Wonder.
Essential in the progress towards Wisdom is a growing intimacy with all aspects of Nature. The message which each tree, flower, animal, meadow, sea, sky, and cloud has, must be listened to and understood.
