    Inhaltsangabe

    By the author of The Science Delusion, a detailed account of how science can authenticate spirituality.

    To go beyond is to move into a higher state of consciousness, to a place of bliss, greater understanding, love, and deep connectedness, a realm where we finally find life's meaning - experiences for which all spiritual seekers seek. Dr Rupert Sheldrake, writing as both a scientist and a spiritual explorer, looks at seven spiritual practices that are personally transformative and have scientifically measurable effects.

    He combines the latest scientific research with his extensive knowledge of mystical traditions around the world to show how we may tune in to more-than-human realms of consciousness through psychedelics, such as ayahuasca, and by taking cannabis. He also shows how everyday activities can have mystical dimensions, including sports and learning from animals. He discusses traditional religious practices such as fasting, prayer and the celebration of festivals and holy days.

    Why do these practices work? Are their effects all inside brains and essentially illusory? Or can we really make contact with forms of consciousness greater than our own?

    We are in the midst of a spiritual revival. This book is an essential guide.

    Rupert Sheldrake, a scientist worthy of the term

    Having followed Rupert Sheldrake's amazing and profound path through science and further explorations, with long-term experiments and inspiring discourse between likeminds who dare ask questions, enquiring beyond the established school of thought, I could listen to him for hours, feeling taught in the best way - enlightened.

    It's painful to see history repeated again and again, also in Sheldrake's case: that the ones who seek to learn and think out of the box do not find the acknowledgement and appreciation they deserve in their lifetime.
    I predict that, while Dawkins' world perception fades away as limited, even flawed, in a foreseeable future, people like Rupert Sheldrake will be ranking high in times to come, then being called 'innovative' and 'ingenious' or 'gifted', unlike what TED censorship or the biased Wikipedia posse may mark them today...

    This book is just another fine example how capable Sheldrake's mind is to connect the disciplines of scientific thinking and spiritual thriving.
