Alternative science guru Bruce Lipton is the most recognisable face of a growing movement in the world of spiritual theory, epigenetics. Defined by a central theory that suggests genes can be altered by environmental factors beyond what modern science believes possible, Bruce propagates the idea that you can ‘reprogram your genes’ - put simply, it all comes down to mind over matter. Bruce Lipton has appeared as a guest on high profile radio shows like the Joe Rogan Experience podcast, and regularly travels around the world to deliver lectures on this new breed of experimental biology. In 2005, he published ‘The Biology of Belief’ a self-published introduction to epigenetics, which snagged an award for the ‘Best Science Book’ from USA Book News. In Zagreb, the two-day lecture series will present a range of thoughts and ideas around his theory that ‘civilisation is on the threshold of a major evolutionary event, the emergence of a new giant super-organism called humanity.’ Lipton’s concepts are a reaction to global crises in health and psychology, in order to ‘create a genuine revolution in thought and understanding.’ The illustrated series of lectures takes place at The Student Centre, University of Zagreb, with radical seminar topics such as ‘New Physics: Good Vibes - Bad Vibes’ and ‘The Matrix… For Real’. Tickets range from €190 (early bird) to €550 (VIP). Book your place here.
Over 100 images taken during Croatia's War Of Independence are presented in Up Close and Personal: War in Croatia, the first official exhibition at the new Image Of War Photography Museum. The exhibition holds not only the work of professional Croatian, Serb and world-renowned photographers such as Peter Turnley, Dragoljub Zamurović, Ron Haviv, Christopher Morris, Romeo Ibrišević and Matko Biljak, but also photos donated by the public. Alongside the photographs are the testimonies of those who were caught up in the conflict. The exhibition depicts not only the actual conflict and those who took part, but also the aftermath and the people who existed within that environment. Photographs of disturbed and injured participants in the war stand next to those of the distraught and grieving, plus those of children who make a playground in the scorched earth, destruction and rubble.
