The Center for Spirituality, Science and Medicine presents "The Physics and Biology of Consciousness," with instructor Leanna Standish, PhD, ND, LAc, FABMO. This course will describe what we currently know (scientifically) about the nature of human consciousness. Data from physics, biology, neuroscience and medicine will be presented and discussed.
The Center for Spirituality, Science and Medicine was created in November 2009 to support Bastyr University's commitment to a multidisciplinary exploration of the deep questions at the heart of spiritual and scientific inquiry.
As an expression of Bastyr's mission and vision, the Center hosts courses and conversations devoted to illuminating the interfaces, connections and congruence between spirituality, science, nature and medicine.
The Center shares resources in this field and develops collaborative relationships with other organizations and people who work at the frontiers of this exploration. The primary ambition of the Center is to contribute to the cultivation of wisdom and wholeness in the practice of medicine.
