Science and Consciousness 2022: Making Wyrd the Norm


  • Have a direct experience of your mind influencing the world around you with technology developed at Princeton University
  • Take part in a Remote Perception experiment where you send and receive information from other people outside of time and space
  • Experience a psychomanteum, used by Nostradamus to travel to the future and Raymond Moody to contact the other side
  • Join a collective experiment in what it would be like to assume our interconnectedness is the norm
  • Meet and engage with scientists and researchers in the domain of consciousness studies
  • Learn how we are fundamentally interconnected and why that is so critical for our times today
  • Enjoy the beautiful and transformative Broughton Sanctuary, with its stunning nature and transformational Avalon spa and retreat centre

Course Description:

Following the success of the inaugural Science and Consciousness event in 2021, it is happening again in 2022, this time with a focus on what it means if we accept that the interconnectedness that this new science is pointing to is real. How does that impact our behaviour and the way we organise ourselves? Wyrd is the Anglo-Saxon concept for the interconnected web of all things, and was very familiar to the people who lived in Yorkshire, the home for the event. So what would it mean if we made Wyrd the norm?

As the latest science is demonstrating and ancient wisdom traditions have long stated, interconnectedness is a fact and we humans are deeply connected to the world around us. Our ability to both understand, experience and engage co-creatively with the rest of the Earth’s expression is critical to our successful navigation of this great transition, with increasing wholeness, vitality and resilience. Bridging the traditionally polarised worlds of consciousness and science is critical if we are going to bring holistic understanding and practice into the mainstream.

The defining challenge that humanity faces is remembering that interconnectedness with each other and the rest of life on Earth. Over a period of 28 years Brenda Dunne and Bob Jahn carried out experiments at Princeton University to explore how we interact non-locally with the world around us – from picking up information to impacting otherwise random events with our intention. They proved beyond statistical doubt that we are indeed interconnected at the informational energetic level, and can interact outside of the standard parameters of time and space. Their findings radically disrupt the absolutism of the mainstream scientific paradigm and illustrate how the teachings of many of the wisdom traditions can now be validated through scientific research.

Broughton Sanctuary now hosts the equipment that was used for that research at Princeton and is making it available for visitors to experience first-hand how their heart and mind directly impact the world around them. Join some of the world’s top scientists, academics and practitioners to share how their work backs up what was discovered at Princeton – that we are fundamentally connected with the world around us.

This conference will include talks and discussions with these leading authorities in the field, as well as experiential exercises using the latest technology and interaction with the beautiful natural surroundings at Broughton. Join us as we tell and experience the story of our interconnectedness, from new science to ancient wisdom – and together build the worldview and practices that will enable us all to thrive into the future.

This course qualifies for 4 credits for enrolled Ubiquity Students.
