Quantum Buddhism: Theosophical Parallels Between Buddhism & Quantum Physics

Can we ever close the gap between science and spirituality? It was obvious that H.P. Blavatsky thought we could when she created the Theosophical Society to promote a synthesis between science, spirituality and philosophy. Over the past 20 years I have studied Eastern spiritual philosophies (Hinduism and Buddhism) and quantum physics, I’ve become convinced that we can indeed close that long-standing gap between science and spirituality with the discoveries of modern quantum physicists.

We will explore consciousness, mind and how mind creates matter; how all phenomena are created in the mind by the mind through the lenses of Buddhist philosophy and quantum physics, and why this matters, if we are to live a fearless and happy life.

Clare Goldsberry is a life-long student of religion and spiritual traditions. When she discovered Buddhism in 1994, she began to understand the meaning of life, why we are manifest in this time and space, and how phenomena exist. She joined The Theosophical Society in 1997 after discovering its connection with Buddhist philosophy. At that point she was introduced to the importance of science in the Buddhist (and ultimately the Hindu) tradition. Clare has been a professional freelance writer most of her adult life and has published seven books. Her latest book, published by Monkfish Book Publishing, is The Illusion of Life and Death: Mind, Consciousness, and Eternal Being. More of her writing can be found on her website, claregoldsberry.com.
