Special Forum 13th November
The Subtle Connections between living beings

Rupert Sheldrake the great researcher of the morphic fields was one of our guests to be a speaker at this Online Seminar but due to his schedule and the intense work for the new book he is writing he will not be able to participate. But as a researcher and enthusiast of the dialogues about the subtle connections between all living beings and all natural phenomena he kindly provided us with some audios of his classes for translation in Portuguese for this event. Dr. Carla Soares was the one we have chosen to bring Sheldrake's content to our Special Forum since she is also a student of these connections.
