Join 2 renowned authors for an evening of conversation, readings and author Q & A to celebrate the publication of Dark Pool of Light: Reality and Consciousness: Volume Three.
In books such as Embyogenesis and Embryos, Galaxies, and Sentient Beings, Richard Grossinger brought together the subjects of biological embryology and consciousness as an embodied experience ("The embryo is the universe writing itself on its own body"). In Dark Pool of Light, a three volume series, Grossinger weaves neuroscience-based behaviorism and the phenomenology of "being" and reality together with psychological and psychospiritual views of "that single thing which is most difficult to understand or vindicate: our own existence." All three volumes of the book will be available at the talk and signing.
