Belief, Health, Psychology, Science, Thought Comments Off on April 8, 2015 – How Our Thoughts Undermine Our Health


Join us Wednesday April 8,  2015 at 6:30 PM for “Thinking Our Way to Sickness, Pain and Death: How Our Thoughts Undermine Our Health”
Presented by Professor Keith Lyle.

Many people view sickness, pain, and death as inevitable biological phenomena that occur quite independently of what we might think about them.  But psychological research challenges that notion and reveals surprising links between mind and health.  In this talk, Professor Lyle will describe those links and discuss the many ways our health might benefit from the proper mindset.

Keith received his PhD in Psychology from Yale University in 2005.  He’s currently an Associate Professor of Psychological and Brain Processes at the University of Louisville, where he teaches courses on Cognitive Neuroscience, Cognitive Processes, and Human Memory. His research interests include memory enhancement and eyewitness memory.  He also studies personality, with an emphasis on authoritarianism and mental flexibility.

Keith joined LES back in 2011 for a fascinating presentation and discussion. At that time, he shared with us the results of some precognition experiments he had conducted at U of L’s psych lab, based on the experiments designed by Daryl J. Bem – Psychology Professor Emeritus at Cornell University. Professor Bem reported in late 2010 that his experiments had scientifically proven for the first time the existence of precognition. More recently Keith has become interested in studying the connection of how our thoughts directly impact our health,  and will share with us some of the conclusions being reached by both himself and other researchers in this field. He will also share some information on the  correct mindset that may benefit our health.

Please join LES as we welcome Professor Keith Lyle for another fascinating presentation and discussion.


All sincere seekers are welcome.  $10 for pay-as-you-go attendees; No charge for LES pre-pay Members.

April 10, 2012 – “The Power of Thought”

Consciousness, Thought Comments Off on April 10, 2012 – “The Power of Thought”

Join us on Tuesday April 10, 2012 for our discussion group topic, “The Power of Thought presented by Rory Colgan.

Rory’s main thesis is that the Nature of Life is extremes, opposites, and the interplay between apparent differences for the benefit of sentient consciousness.

This shows up in quantum physics, atomic physics, and our daily interactions in human existence.  In the ups and downs of the human mind, magic happens. It is only useful in the sense that it is harnessed for power, vitality, creativity, and ultimately Enlightenment. Rory will focus on TRUTH, INTELLIGENCE, the parallels between “human problems” and failure to use The Power of Thought.

Through timeless wisdom of the ancients, to the New Age movement many of us believe or know that the mind functions off of thought. So what is thought?  A form of light.  What does that mean?  Where does it come from?  How is thought indestructible?  How is thought permeable?  What is the metaphysical nature of thought and how can we trace it into the physical?   How can we objectively observe the structure of thought?  How do we create thought?

Join us Tuesday April 10 for The Power of Thought!  All sincere seekers are welcome.  A $5 donation is suggested.
