Greetings from the Scientific and Medical Network!
As both Cygnus and SMN share a vision of inspiring their members to enhance their lives and know that spirituality can contribute to a meaningful life, we decided to collaborate so that Cygnus members could benefit from conferences and events organised by the SMN. So by way of collaboration we are delighted to bring you a special limited offer on an exciting conference about Harmony where you can listen to some inspiring talks, take part in an experiential music workshop and come together with like-minded people in a spirit of exploration and dialogue.
The annual ‘Mystics and Scientists’ Conference has been running every year since 1978 and is the premier UK event bringing science and spirituality together.
Inspired by the work of HRH The Prince of Wales (whose work will be presented by his co-author Ian Skelly), we are looking this year at the importance of harmony as an underlying organising principle, with contributions on elephants and bees from conservationist Lucy King, mindful living from Earth pilgrim Satish Kumar, linking our inner and outer lives from violinists Paul and Chika Robertson, harmonious landscape design from architect Charles Jencks and the music of the spheres from cosmologist Jean-Philippe Uzan. We will meet in the friendly, luxurious surroundings of Horsley Park near Guildford – do join us!

About the Scientific and Medical Network
The Scientific and Medical Network (founded in 1973) provides interdisciplinary education exploring the frontiers of science, consciousness and spirituality. It assumes that there are many ways of knowing the world and ourselves, of which science is just one. In order to do justice to the full spectrum of human experience and the complexity of the cosmos, it encourages dialogue and interaction between the spiritual, the scientific, the philosophical and the arts in open-minded enquiry.
Members have the benefit of a high quality magazine packed with reviews and features, access to a unique and extensive archive of past talks and seminars, contact with a network of like-minded people from all over the world and priority discount booking for our events.
