The Mystery of Consciousness and Why it Matters by Dr. Christian Schriner, Minister Emeritus, Mission Peak Unitarian Universalist
In addition to having earned his Doctorate in Religion from the Claremont School of Theology, Dr. Schriner earned an M.S. in Family Counseling from the University of LaVerne and worked for more than 25 years as a psychotherapist. He is the author of six books, including Your Living Mind: The Mystery of Consciousness and Why It Matters to You: and Bridging the God Gap: Finding Common Ground Among Believers, Athesists and Agnostics.
Dr. Schriner, an active blogger, has presented papers at many conferences. The Journal of Consciousness Studies has recently accepted one of his papers on the question of how conscious experiences, including sensory experiences, could occur within a brain. We will have a discussion following this interesting presentation, so come armed with your questions!
