Event description

Description

Don't miss this chance to spend an evening with Fritjof Capra, author of the Tao of Physics, as he discusses the nature of experience in relation to conversations he had with the infamous "anti-psychiatrist" R.D. Laing. Dr. Capra is currently retired and no longer gives public lectures aside from the one rare exception of this event, so don't miss it!

On December 9th we have the pleasure of hosting Dr. Fritjof Capra, prominent author, physicist, and systems theorist at Monument, a beautiful and spacious venue in downtown San Francisco.

During the 1980s, many of Fritjof Capra’s discussions with R.D. Laing centered on the nature of experience and the challenges of formulating a science of experience. In this lecture Fritjof will show to what extent Laing’s prescient ideas are being realized by cognitive scientists today who are developing a science of mind and consciousness that, for the first time, unifies mind, matter, and life.

This event is a fundraiser for Gnosis Retreat Center, a non-profit organization that aims to provide a safe space for people with altered experiences of reality.

The event will include a donation based bar and a raffle with prizes such as signed copies of The Tao of Physics and Lunch with Fritjof!

Fritjof Capra, Ph.D., physicist and systems theorist, is the author of several international bestsellers, including The Tao of Physics (1975), The Web of Life (1996), and The Hidden Connections (2002). He is coauthor, with Pier Luigi Luisi, of the multidisciplinary textbook, The Systems View of Life (Cambridge University Press, 2014). Fritjof’s new online course (www.capracourse.net) is based on his textbook.
