Whether or not we're aware of it, all of us seek the experience of transcendence in our everyday lives. Call it the ''zone,'' ''the flow,'' or ''peak experiences,'' but we are all in search of it—in our relationships, professional careers, and even in competition.
According to Merriam Webster, ''transcendence'' is defined as ''going beyond, or surpassing, ordinary human limitations.''
The desire for transcendence is nothing new; in fact, it is ancient. But the quest for it today seems more intensified, even more frenetic, than ever. It forms the basis of leadership training, athletic fitness programs, and self-development courses of all kinds.
To the skeptic or the outsider, what is transcendence? What is the experience like? What are the practical benefits for top leaders, such as Ray Dalio and Martin Scorsese? Most importantly, what does science say about transcendence?
Dr. Tony Nader is a Harvard and MIT-trained medical doctor and neuroscientist who has spent 40 years researching the neuroscience of transcendence—its subjective experience and its objective benefits. Dr. Nader also oversees the nonprofit Transcendental Meditation® (TM®) organization in 100 countries, where he works with the private sector as well as with governmental organizations and NGOs to oversee the implementation of meditation programs in business, the military, education, and health organizations worldwide.
In this talk, Dr. Nader will present:
1. Neurophysiological research that reveals a fourth major state of consciousness gained during the TM technique and its impact on optimizing brain and cognitive functioning; reducing stress, anxiety, heart disease, and stroke; and improving health and resilience.
2. His new book, One Unbounded Ocean of Consciousness (Penguin Random House, April 2021), which reveals a unique, new picture of the world that is rooted in and informed by a field of consciousness, which Dr. Nader posits is supported by discoveries from both modern science and ancient wisdom traditions.
*Note: This webinar will be recorded and made available to all registrants.
More about Dr. Nader
Tony Nader, MD, PhD is a globally recognized expert in consciousness and human development.
Dr. Nader was trained at Harvard and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. His medical training included internal medicine, psychiatry, and neurology; and he holds a PhD in neuroscience. He was assistant director of clinical research at MIT and a clinical research fellow at Massachusetts General Hospital, conducting research in neurochemistry and neuroendocrinology on the relationships among diet, age, behavior, mood, seasonal influences, and hormonal activity; and on the role of neurotransmitter precursors in medicine.
Dr. Nader is the successor to Maharishi Mahesh Yogi as head of the Transcendental Meditation organization globally. He has spoken at many conferences, including at Stanford on the topic, ''Hacking Consciousness,'' and recently was the keynote speaker for a conference at the House of Commons of the British Parliament.
The latest of Dr. Nader's five books is the best-seller, One Unbounded Ocean of Consciousness: Simple Answers to the Big Questions in Life, in which he comprehensively examines what consciousness is, why it is primary, and what researchers in neuroscience and the science of mind call the ''hard problem'': the how and why of qualia or phenomenal experience.
