The Mystery Behind the Brain
How much do we know about the brain? Is it a portal to the soul, the seat of our consciousness, the source of our intellect or just a very complex computing machine? How does it work and what is its true purpose and potential?
This talk will give an overview of what modern science has discovered so far, but also what ancient philosophies have to teach us about our little grey matter.

The Cosmovision of Shamanism
- Istvan Orban
Shamanism is an ancient and almost universal tradition among societies that live close to nature, and many seekers in the Western world feel that there is a lot that can be learnt from this natural form of practical wisdom.
Using Mircea Eliades seminal work on Shamanism as a starting point, this talk will look at the universal aspects of this inner path, such as the concepts of initiation, death and rebirth, and renewal of the individual and society through deep inner transformation.
