Doctor Ph.D. Degree - Arts & Humanities
Spiritual Science via distance learning
This Doctor Ph.D. Degree of spiritual science offers a spiritual view of reality that transcends both conventional science and religion. Science has had little success in explaining such areas as human consciousness, the connection between the mind and the body, the origins of life, altruism and ‘anomalous’ phenomena such as near-death experiences, psychic phenomena and spiritual experiences. Spiritual Science explains how the standard materialist model of reality developed, and turned into a belief system. This belief system can only function by denying (or explaining away) a whole range of phenomena that are part of human experience. There is no conflict between Science and Spirituality. All true spirituality is scientific and all true science is spiritual.
