Prof. Amit Goswami, is professor emeritus in the physics department of the University of Oregon. He is a pioneer of the new paradigm of science called science within consciousness. In his book "The Self-Aware Universe", he solved the quantum measurement problem paving the path to a new paradigm of science based on the primacy of consciousness. In his most recent book The Quantum Doctor he integrates conventional and alternative medicine.

Consciousness, Evolution and Transformation
Quantum physics has given us a new science within the primacy of consciousness. An important aspect of this new science is a new theory of creative evolution that explains the famous fossil gaps between fossil lineages as quantum leaps.
In this workshop, physicist Amit Goswami will present the new theory of evolution along with a discussion of our evolutionary future in which the new science converges with the philosophis of Teillard de Chardin and Sri Aurobindo.
A most stubborn obstacle against the evolutionary movement of consciousness is that we have not so far in our history integrated thinking and feeling. The Yoga psychologist Uma Krishnamurthy will discuss and experientially teach techniques of transformation of emotions.
In particular, she will introduce you to Sri Aurobindo?s four great positive emotions and discuss ways to arrive at them.
