Event (arranged by myself) tomorrow with Chris French, Andy Lewis, etc. - see some of you there I hope

CFI UK and Conway Hall present

HEALING POWERS OF THE MIND?

Chris French, Andy Lewis, Mike Heap, Serena Roney-Dougal

Do some people have the power to heal others by psychic means? Would medicine benefit by being more aware of our “spiritual” dimension? Where do psychic and spiritual approaches to medicine end and quackery begin? Does hypnosis work, and if so, how? Does meditation offer real benefits – and if so, what are they?

Thanks for this event, Stephen. Excellent talks by Chris French, Mike Heap and Andy Lewis. Obviously Serena Roney-Dougal wasn't quite on the same wavelength as the humanists in the room, but it was still fascinating to hear about her life with the monks!

Following Andy's talk, I've blogged about Steinerism, which is a worrying development in the free school initiative.
