The 42nd Annual SSF-IIIHS Int’l Conference
The World’s Longest Running Science and Spirituality Summit

Frequently Asked Questions


What is unique about the conference? What type of topics will be presented?

Our conference is one of the few international events that addresses the integration of science and spirituality. Many attendees tell us that the event is life-changing because of the scope, universality and depth of significant topics covered. Some presenters will cover already known topics in the alternative, holistic or spiritual fields, while others will offer cutting-edge information that few people have heard about. The purpose of the conference is not just to provide attendees with new information, but to offer a space for integration so that real personal change is possible.


What is the main language of the conference? Do people speak English in Montréal?

All parts of the conference program and events will be presented in English, with many sessions being translated simultaneously into Spanish and French. Consult the official program for more details. Montréal is a French city where the majority of people understand and speak English. The city was first settled by the French, and one can hear people speak French throughout the city, which gives it a very European feel. However, English-speaking visitors have no problems visiting Montréal because it is a truly international city, being host to many world events.


Is the conference intended only for advanced spiritual seekers and top-level scientific researchers?

Our conference welcomes people from all backgrounds and levels of development. Our unique ten-day program is so rich and varied in content that both the curious novice and the expert metaphysician or researcher can find topics of great interest.


Does your program only include intellectual presentations and lectures? Do I have to pay for the mini-concerts and activities between workshops and lecture sessions?

We offer a balanced and holistic program, which includes many lectures, hands-on workshops, musical presentations, silence or guided meditations, classes, spirit contact demonstrations sessions and joyful events. The Conference is a fun international networking opportunity where attendees meet and share common interests. Session prices include preludes and postludes. Only presentations identified as “OPTIONS” entail additional charges. Note that there is a $20 surcharge for non-current SSF-IIIHS members (2016–2017). For non-members who plan to attend only one session, the surcharge will be waived.


Do I have to be an SSF member to attend the conference?

The conference is open to the general public. Anyone can join us at this unique event.


Are you part of a religious group?

We are a non-denominational organization comprised of people from different spiritual and philosophical convictions. Religious, non-religious and agnostic people alike have been enjoying our conferences for years. We share common values as well as universal, spiritual and humanistic ideals in open-mindedness, diversity, respect and unity. Our programs are sure to offer many topics of interest to all, irrespective of their model of the world.


What happens once the conference ends? Will I be left alone in my personal quest for knowledge, wisdom, well-being or wholeness?

Our staff and volunteers work hard to offer other unique programs and courses throughout the year, in Montréal and in other locations. For those interested in the integration of science and spirituality, our seasonal programs include spiritual sessions, gatherings and workshops on Metaphysics, new Paradigms of consciousness, personal and intuitive development, health and wellness, shamanism, yoga, energy healing, meditation, etc. For more information, please visit our main website.
