Beyond the Mind-Body Problem http://www.mindbodysymposium.com/

Ahead of our re-broadcast of the program on Stress and the Balance Within this week, our guest Dr. Esther Sternberg will be participating in an international symposium (co-organized with the United Nations) on the mind-body connection. It’s pretty interesting that an international body like the UN takes part in the scientific conversation around what human consciousness is about:
The Human Consciousness Project will conduct the world’s first large-scale multicenter studies at major U.S. and European medical centers on the relationship between mind and brain during clinical death. The results of these studies may not only revolutionize the medical care of critically ill patients and the scientific study of the mind and brain, but may also bear profound universal implications for our understanding of death and what happens when we die.
