Exploring The Frontiers

Exploring the frontiers of science is our great passion, here at Manchester modern-day Monastery.

We're particularly interested in new scientific research that explores the boundaries between what is considered 'science' and what is considered 'spiritual.' Emerging fields in biology, such as plant consciousness, morphic resonance and epigenetics are at the forefront of exciting, new, overlapping discoveries that create new possibilities for understanding our world, our place in it and our relationship with all that exists. Combined with recent, pioneering work in neuroscience, geometry and quantum physics, we at Manchester Monastery believe that humanity is on the cusp of a huge, collective, paradigm shift.

In our science section, we'll be sharing some of the work that we have found to be both inspiring and enlightening.

We warmly invite you to explore some of this innovative and groundbreaking science.
