Recording from a 2023 Community Conversation hosted by SAND Founders Zaya and Maurizio Benazzo. Mauro Zappaterra shares cutting-edge insights about the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) — a clear fluid that bathes our entire central nervous (CNS) system. Our CNS is entirely buoyant in this fluid, which is 99% water. Water has been shown to exhibit much more complex properties than we used to think. Could water hold memory or transmit energy? And therefore could the CSF be a conduit or bridge from physical form to Source energy and consciousness?

Mauro Zappaterra obtained his MD and PhD from Harvard Medical School. He is board-certified in physical medicine and rehabilitation with a focus on optimizing human performance, increasing awareness and decreasing suffering. He has been practicing mindfulness since 1998, and teaching mindfulness to patients with chronic pain since 2018, as he is the Director of Multidisciplinary Care at Synovation Medical Group. He has led the Awakening Awareness Program for the Emerging Sciences Foundation which can be found on YouTube. He has published numerous scientific papers and medical book chapters on the cerebrospinal fluid, disability, and pain management. He has also published “I Am”, “All One”, and “All Love” which are three books exploring topics of awareness, primarily for kids, but really for people of all ages. He has also published “Close Your Eyes, What Do You See?” with his son, which is a story about imagination and intention. He continues to create programs to help patients with chronic pain and investigate the cerebrospinal fluid and integrate new research to evolve the hypothesis of The Cerebrospinal fluid and I Am.

Science and Nonduality is a community inspired by timeless wisdom, informed by cutting-edge science, and grounded in direct experience. We come together in an open-hearted exploration while celebrating our humanity.
