Course Description

This course consists of a 14-lesson course taught by Tony Nader, MD, PhD, in which he unfolds the details of his 65-page paper “Consciousness Is All There Is: A Mathematical Approach with Applications” which was inspired by Maharishi. This paper was published in the Journal of Mathematics and Consciousness and is breaking new ground in mathematics. Dr. Nader discusses how heretofore unsolved problems can be resolved with this new paradigm.

Each lesson includes a 45-minute video by Dr. Tony Nader with questions and answers and discussion led by Professor Cathy Gorini.

There are also six workshop classes which were held by Dr. Gorini which you can view and have an opportunity to do activities that Dr. Nader developed for this course.

No previous courses in mathematics are required to take this course.
