Rupert Sheldrake sheds new light on these spiritual practices

According to Rupert Sheldrake’s hypothesis of morphic resonance, organisms and societies are organized by morphic fields which contain an inherent memory, given by a process called morphic resonance from previous similar systems. All species have collective memories. These principles apply to the resonant patterns set up by chanting mantras, and by taking part in rituals and festivals, which set up resonant connections across time and across generations. Rupert will show how morphic resonance sheds a new light on these spiritual practices, as well as on myths and archetypes.
