Dr David Hamilton is the bestselling author of 7 books published by Hay House, and offer talks and workshops that use science to inspire, fusing science, the mind, and spiritual wisdom
Description: 

Some spiritual teachings suggest that everything is an illusion and that there are no absolute truths. Einstein presented a similar idea with Relativity, that even the fabric of reality is not as we think it is and changes depending on our perspective.

This idea is also shared by quantum theory. Similarly, a growing popular idea in neuroscience is that the world as we see it is created by our brain structure and does not in any way resemble actual reality.

David will present these ideas and teach some meditations to help us experience a greater perspective of reality and a greater sense of our own spiritual selves. There will also be group discussions as we explore what these developments in science and spirituality teach us about ourselves and the world.
 

About the speaker, Dr David Hamilton

About David:

I have a first class honors degree in chemistry, specializing in biological and medicinal chemistry. After completing my PhD, I worked for 4 years in the pharmaceutical industry developing drugs for cardiovascular disease and cancer. During this time I also served as an athletics coach and manager of one of the UK’s largest athletics clubs, leading them to three successive UK finals. Upon leaving the pharmaceutical industry, I co-founded the international relief charity Spirit Aid Foundation and served as a director for 2 years.

While writing my first book, I taught chemistry and ecology (and one math class) at James Watt College of Further and Higher Education and tutored chemistry at Glasgow University.

I’m now a bestselling author of 7 books published by Hay House, and offer talks and workshops that use science to inspire, fusing science, the mind, and spiritual wisdom. I also write a regular blog on my website as well as one for the Huffington Post.

I have been featured in numerous publications, including ELLE, RED Magazine, Psychologies, YOU Magazine, Good Housekeeping (both UK & US), and several newspapers.

You might wonder how I got into writing on the subjects I do. Well, I was fascinated by the placebo effect, how people improve through believing they are receiving a drug. Working in drug development exposed me to the placebo effect so I began to study mind-body interactions in my spare time. I decided to leave the pharmaceutical industry after 4 years because I wanted to write and speak about the mind, our abilities, and help people to believe in themselves more. And I also wanted to write and speak about kindness and spread the idea that a small group of people with compassion and kindness in their hearts can change the world.
