Dr Rupert Sheldrake.UK. 'Research on the Unexplained Powers of Animals'.

I am delighted after many years of inviting Dr Rupert Sheldrake to speak with us, that he has finally agreed in our ninth year and the conference is humbled that he is our Keynote Speaker presenting 'Research on the Unexplained Powers of Animals'.

Dr Rupert Sheldrake is an eminent biologist well known for his hypothesis on morphic resonance and author of more than ninety technical papers and nine books, including Dogs That Know When Their Owners Are Coming Home. 

As a Fellow of Clare College, Cambridge, he was Director of Studies in Cell Biology, and was also a Research Fellow of the Royal Society. He worked in Hyderabad, India, as Principal Plant Physiologist at the International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT), and also lived for two years in the Ashram of Fr Bede Griffiths in Tamil Nadu. From 2005-2010, he was Director of the Perrott-Warrick Project for the study of unexplained human and animal abilities, funded by Trinity College, Cambridge.

He is currently a Fellow of the Institute of Noetic Sciences in Petaluma, California and of Schumacher College in Dartington,Devon. He lives in London and is married to Jill Purce, with whom he has two sons.

His web site is full of fascinating studies, interviews & blogs


Dr. Sheldrake has many scientific papers on animal powers that you may wish to browse through here.

Dr Sheldrake would most like to speak to you on his Keynote presentation about Research and particularly about encouraging everyone to do research with animals. Rupert and his wife did the research on dogs when they know when their guardians are coming home.

Even though there was widespread interest in this subject, he doesn't believe anyone has followed it up.For example, no one has done an experiment with cats knowing when their guardians are coming home and filming the experiment. So with this in mind, his presentation topic is 'Research on the Unexplained Powers of Animals'.
