An Evening with Dr. Amit Goswami, author of “Quantum Creativity”
March 25, 2014 @ 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Purchase your tickets in advance below or at Pilgrim’s Way for $12 or at the door for $15.
In this mind-expanding work, physicist Amit Goswami, Ph.D., explores the world of human creativity-the ultimate source of joy and fulfillment-through the lens of quantum physics, and offers up a unique way to nurture and enhance your own creativity.
According to quantum physics, reality occurs on two levels: possibility and actuality. Goswami uses this same duality to explore what he calls “quantum thinking,” which focuses on two levels of thinking-the conscious mind of actuality and the unconscious mind of possibility. He then poses questions that probe the wellspring of creation that exists in each of us. What is creativity? Can anyone be creative? What kinds of creativity are there? And through this inquiry, he lays out a guidebook for understanding the power of the mind to access creativity in a whole new way.
Combining the art of creativity with the objectivity of science, Quantum Creativity uses empirical data to support this new method of thinking and outlines how to harness our innate abilities in order to live more creatively. In short, Goswami teaches you how to think quantum to be creative.
Amit Goswami, Ph.D., is a retired professor from the theoretical physics department of the University of Oregon in Eugene, where he had served since 1968. He is a pioneer of the new paradigm known as “science within consciousness.” The author of textbook, Quantum Mechanics, and other popular titles, including The Self-Aware Universe, The Visionary Window, Physics of the Soul, The Quantum Doctor, God Is Not Dead, and How Quantum Activism Can Save Civilization, Dr. Goswami also appeared in such films as What the Bleep Do We Know!?, Down the Rabbit Hole, The Dalai Lama Renaissance, and the award-winning documentary The Quantum Activist.

*Proceeds of this event will go to benefit the Philip Glass Center’s Days and Nights Festival. “The Glass Center will be our home – a place where artists, scientists, and conservationists will come to learn and work together to produce a culture of renewal for our time. This work will become a forum, which will contribute to the public good and finally, stand as a true cultural center for today and the future.” – Philip Glass
