There are those moments — lots of them when we are children and less as we age — when we get totally absorbed in what we are doing and lose track of everything else. Time seems to fly by or stand still. We’re not aware of feeling hungry. We can barely tell if other people are talking to us. And we really seem to have no purpose at that instant other than doing the task for its own sake. These are very special moments of total absorption called flow states. Science has begun to look carefully at these very special moments where we are “in the zone,” where we enter into a state of focus and all sense of self-awareness drifts way. Dr. Hamilton will discuss the neuroscience of flow states and what each of us can do to foster more of them to come into our lives.

Dr. Allan Hamilton holds four professorships at the University of Arizona—Neurosurgery, Radiation Oncology, Psychology and Electrical and Computer Engineering. He is the author of The Scalpel and The Soul — Encounters with Surgery, the Supernatural and the Healing Power of Love (2008), and Zen Mind, Zen Horse — the Science and Spirituality of Working with Horses (2011).

How would you like to be a “fly on the wall” and listen in on a conversation between two of the three “most spiritually influential people alive” (Watkins Mind Body Spirit, 2012)?  In this dialogue, they delve into everything from ancient spiritual texts to contemporary pop culture, tackling questions we all wrestle with: Who am I? What is real? What is the meaning of life? Their talk and responses to questions from the audience present at the taping, offer rich philosophical insights which are at the same time practical and accessible, and filled with warmth and gentle humor. As Wayne explains, when we “create a world of extraordinary people who look beyond what they were programmed to become, we impact the entire consciousness of this planet.”  See a preview HERE

Wayne W. Dyer, Ph.D., is the internationally renowned speaker and author of more than 30 books on self-development. He has appeared on thousands of television and radio shows. His doctorate, in educational counseling, is from Wayne State University, Detroit.

Eckhart Tolle, born in Germany, educated at the Universities of London and Cambridge, wrote the NY Times #1 bestseller The Power of Now, and its highly acclaimed follow-up A New Earth, both widely  regarded as among the most influential spiritual books of our time.
