Imaginal Inspirations

Imaginal cells are responsible for the metamorphosis of the caterpillar into a butterfly, the Greek symbol for the soul. These cells are dormant in the caterpillar but at a critical point of development they create the new form and structure which becomes the butterfly.


In the podcast series Imaginal Inspirations, David Lorimer talks to transformational authors and scientists about the experiences, people and books that have shaped their life and work.

David Lorimer's guest today is Dr Natalie Dyer, PhD who spoke at the 2021 Beyond the Brain conference on universal love and who is a research scientist studying the therapeutic effects of integrative medicine and spiritual practices, including yoga, meditation, Reiki, psychedelics, and universal love. She completed her doctorate in neuroscience at Queen’s University Ontario and postdoctoral fellowships in psychology at Harvard University and Harvard Medical School. She currently works as a research scientist with Connor Integrative Health Network, and as President of the non-profit organization the Center for Reiki Research. She has published many scientific papers and presented her research to diverse audiences throughout North America and Europe. Together with over 300 other scientists and physicians, Natalie was the first signee of the Manifesto for a Postmaterialist Science, a declaration for science to move beyond the outdated materialist paradigm. Natalie is also an energy medicine practitioner specializing in Reiki and North American, European, and Tibetan shamanic practices.

 

Imaginal Inspirations is hosted by David Lorimer, Programme Director of the Scientific and Medical Network and Chair of the Galileo Commission, an academic movement dedicated to expanding the evidence base of a science of consciousness. Imaginal cells are responsible for the metamorphosis of the caterpillar into a butterfly, which is the Greek symbol for the soul. These cells are dormant in the caterpillar but at a critical point of development they create the new form and structure which becomes the butterfly.
