The Methods of Science?

Presented by Marty Laubach.

We like to think that spiritual experiences are more than a flight of fantasy, and can tell us something about ourselves and even about the world we live in. Sometimes the experience is so intense that we look for "real world" validation; but when we do, we are either told that we are delusional or we are given some explanation that leaves us with a taste of pseudoscience and psychobabble. This workshop will touch on this idea of validation and the challenge of Crowley's credo "the method of science, the aim of religion," and will explore what science can and can't tell us about spiritual experiences.
