We wish everyone a light-filled, inspiring New Year,
with new visions and initiatives to bring hope, joy and love!

The One Spirit Alliance works to promote and provide a forum for spiritually-minded people, organisations and networks to foster connection and collaboration between them.

Our vision

The One Spirit Alliance is founded on a recognition of the One Spirit that underpins all life.  This One Spirit inspires a shared consciousness that takes us beyond all established boundaries. It is underpinned by values and principles that ignite our love for each other and foster care and appreciation of our planetary home and its place in the cosmos. This awareness has grown out of meditation, individual and collective spiritual experience and new approaches to science which have lead to a realisation of the greater whole.

The vision of One Spirit Alliance is to facilitate the coming together of the diverse spiritual paths which draw on a variety of faith, ethical and ecological traditions as well as new explorations. By engaging in conscious conversations and shared silence we can discover the unity that lies at the heart of all paths that seek a harmonious way of life. We believe in the principle of one global family. For more on the background of OSA, click on <About OSA>.

My dear, In the midst of hate, I found there was, within me, an invincible love. In the midst of tears, I found there was, within me, an invincible smile. In the midst of chaos, I found there was, within me, an invincible calm. I realized, through it all, that… In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer. And that makes me happy. For it says that no matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me, there’s something stronger – something better, pushing right back.
Truly yours, Albert Camus

Until this ‘die and be born again’ is yours, you are but a sorry tenant in a gloomy world.
Goethe

“…When people have light in themselves, it will shine out from them.
Then we get to know each other as we walk together in the darkness,
without needing to pass our hands over each other’s faces,
or to intrude into each other’s hearts.”
Albert Schweitzer

“I am not a mechanism, an assembly of various sections.
And it is not because the mechanism is working wrongly, that I am ill.
I am ill because of wounds to the soul, to the deep emotional self,
and the wounds to the soul take a long, long time, only time can help
and patience, and a certain difficult repentance
long difficult repentance, realization of life’s mistake, and the freeing oneself
from the endless repetition of the mistake
which mankind at large has chosen to sanctify.”
DH Lawrence

“Praise and blame, gain and loss, pleasure and sorrow come and go like the wind.
To be happy, rest like a giant tree in the midst of them all.”
Buddha

I am not I.
I am this one
walking beside me whom I do not see,
whom at times I manage to visit,
and whom at other times I forget;
who remains calm and silent while I talk,
and forgives, gently, when I hate,
who walks where I am not,
who will remain standing when I die.

by Juan Ramon Jimenez

The soul’s creative power
Out of the core of heart is striving
To kindle in the human life
For righteous acts, the godly forces,
So it may mold itself
In human love and also human deeds.
Soul Calendar verse for the third week of January
It is, within this winter gloom,
The strong endeavour of the soul
To manifest her innate power;
To lead it into darknesses
And feel a premonition
Through warmth of heart,
     of senses revelation.

‘The Time is Now’ – a reflection by Janice Dolley

It seems that a great shift of the ages is underway and I’m hoping that some of us who have been sensing this and working towards it in different ways can share our insights on both what is happening and what might be ahead.

Here are some of mine. They come from several sources such as my own inner knowing and meditative awareness, several teachings from higher sources through certain people who act as channels and which reach me on the Internet and extra-terrestrial sources passed on by centres of receptivity. So I make no claim that anyone of them are ‘the truth’ but as they all share many similar messages this resumé might assist your own insights.  We aren’t passive observers or recipients of what is underway but are conscious co-creators of a much needed transition to a new world.  Some of us follow one particular teaching or other and some of us are more eclectic and gather from different sources.  My own are underpinned by my Christian background  which, interpreted in a new way, could be perceiving this as the long awaited birth of ‘Christ Conscious’ within humanity. However there are several possible perceptions and interpretations.

The wisdom in festival dates

The festivals around the Winter Solstice, Christmas and the New Year carry particular significance in many cultures. The date for Christmas has undergone changes since the time of Jesus’ birth. In its current position (for most countries) on December 25th, it lies several days after the Winter Solstice, the time when people of all cultures and religions over millennia have celebrated the ‘rebirth’ of the sun. In a way, it is an obvious and significant place for it to stand. But it also stands in relation to the date when New Year was often celebrated earlier, at the Spring Equinox time, Easter time, or at the Annunciation on 25th March, 9 months ahead of Christmas. Purely from the experience of the seasons it has significance: spring is the time when new life begins, and we celebrate as it were a second birth or the beginning of a new cycle at Christmas, thus bringing together the earth’s seasonal cycle with the mother’s nine month cycle fro inception until birth.

In some areas of the world, Christmas is still celebrated on another day, one which used to be more important in the  early centuries of the western orthodox church: the 6th of January, or Epiphany. It is still important in the eastern orthodox church. Some regions celebrate Christmas on 7th January.

Why? Though we know it more popularly as Three Kings Day, and there are many interpretations on deeper meanings behind the three kings, it is also the day of the baptism of Jesus, which was and still is by some celebrated as the birth of Christ, i.e. when the Christ descended into Jesus, in the picture of the dove descending from above at the baptism. It is thus a very spiritual and esoteric event and symbol; yet as the centuries and millennium became more and more materialistically inclined, it was too difficult of a concept for many to grasp and relate to. Except primarily for the Eastern Orthodox church, a decision to shift the celebrated date to  Christmas allowed a more experiential relationship to a new child born, coming shortly after the solstice: an outwardly visible event of the sun regaining its force. Following just after Adam and Eve Day on December 24th, the emphasis is on the innocent and pure child, before the fall as it were, before the temptation of the purely material pleasures of the physical world. Lived into, it could become a symbol for the birth of an inner child that can show us the way to our higher self…

Thus there was created a period from the innocent Jesus child’s birth to the Christ birth: the twelve days of Christmas and the twelve Holy Nights. This period is a journey, portrayed for instance in the very old Scandinavian ‘Dream Song of Olaf Asteson’, where Olaf awakens on the 13th day after a long spiritual experience – awakens to proclaim the birth of Christ on Epiphany, the 6th January.  Such ‘journeys’ can be worked on in our own inner imagination and meditations: the picture of the innocent infant child, as a small radiating flame needing nurturing, bringing hope; through a period of growth to realise a conscious birth or rebirth of spirit, where the flame can radiate and shine to all around, in our thoughts, words and deeds.

Standing approximately in the middle of these 12 days is New Year’s Eve. As with the Roman god, Janus, we look back and we look forward: a time of decision where we summon the will to move forward to a conscious spiritual rebirth. Another aspect: New Year’s day was ‘an octave’ or exactly one week away from Christmas day – as we’re all familiar with (if Christmas is on a Tuesday, we know that New Year’s day will also be).

The principle of ‘Octaves‘ began fairly early in Christian calendars as something that surrounded festival days, used more earlier, now less. This also wasn’t something arbitrary – the principle of the Octave has rhythms, again, as a basis: the rhythm of the week takes you through seven days of different experiences, each day of the week perceived in relation to another quality, governed by the planets. On the eighth day you don’t simply return home: through the experience, like the seven colours of the rainbow, you have magnified the original and arrive at a higher level. One can muse on the number relationships in music and a similar octave principle there. Truly, as Pythagoras expounded and demonstrated, number principles permeate the whole universe!

Naturally there are still many other ‘New Year’ dates around the world. Some, mainly in the East, are based on a lunar calendar:  The Chinese New Year begins on the first new moon between 21 January and 20 February – the period one full month after the winter equinox. The name given to the year follows the cycle of the 12 Chinese zodiac. The Chinese New Year 2020 began on January 25th. The 2021 New Year begins on February 12th and is Year of the Ox, the second of the 12 constellations. In the 2022 it is the year of the Tiger, beginning on February 1st.

Whatever the older tradition, we need to resist the modern materialist temptation to think of them as set arbitrarily, or formed ‘merely’ according to religious beliefs or superstitions. Many are based on seasonal, planetary and zodiacal rhythms, weaving together in many wonderful ways. Relating in real ways to the earthly and cosmic rhythms surrounding us used to be very important and is something we have largely lost. But it can become more significant again for us if we renew this in a conscious way. Nurturing these and other rhythms brings an inner strength and resilience…


There be no secrets!

It seems part of our time that many things come out in the open that people or groups, for reasons of ego or greed, have tried to keep secret. Especially starting with the Brexit debates and now to a heightened level through the time of the Covid ‘pandemic’, we have the feeling but also direct knowledge from many incidences that truth and falsehood are juggled about as playthings, almost — with seemingly little consideration of ethics or inner conscience as to which of the two to use when: they are used to achieve certain ends, whichever works best! This is especially so with political parties, but it also applies increasingly to multi-national corporations which sometimes seem to have as much power as national governments if not more. Power, greed, selfishness – part of the mix of our times, in the interest of which controls and coercion are used to discourage public debate.

There is, though, a parallel stream to this, one which gains strength the more the untruths are bandied about: the conviction that there is an eternal truth, a light that shines through all, which the darkness and the lies do not comprehend, as the light and truth is so much greater and all-comprehensive. Moreover, the strength of the light means that the darkness, lies and deceits cannot rule in the end… READ MORE


BE THE OPEN DOOR FOR THE REMAINING SHIFTS IN 2021

by Patricia Cota-Robles
www.eraofpeace.org

The Company of Heaven never gives us information that may cause concern or fear just for the sake of exposing possible events. The only time the Beings of Light ever reveal information to us that may seem challenging or even ominous is if we have the awareness and the ability to rise above it and to actually help minimize the adverse effects of the situation. This is one of those times.

With the monumental shifts of energy, vibration and consciousness that have taken place within the Earthly experiences of Humanity, the Elemental Kingdom and Mother Earth so far in 2021, the way has been paved for a greatly accelerated purging of our obsolete paradigms. The Beings of Light said this specifically involves the dismantling, the crumbling away and the dissolving of myriad social structures that have manipulated, controlled and suppressed the masses of Humanity for aeons of time…

A focus on Love as a task for human beings and the earth evolution ~

Christ and Love

“Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love.”  (First letter of Paul, 1 Corinthians 13:13)

“A new task and aim I give you: Love one another! As I have loved you, so you should love one another.”(Words of Christ, John 13:34)

“Let us love one another, for love is of God, and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. Anyone who does not love has not recognised God, for God is love.”(1 John 4: 7-8)

THE HYMN TO LOVE

Yet I will show the way which is greater than all others.
If I speak out of the Spirit with the tongues of men and of angels: if I am without love, then my speaking remains as sounding brass or tinkling cymbal. And if i had the gift of prophecy and could speak of all mysteries and could impart all knowledge and, further, had the power of faith which removes mountains; if I am without love, then I am nothing. And if I were to give away everything that is mine, and lastly were to give away even my body for burning, if I am without love, then all is in vain.

Love makes the soul great
Love fills the soul with healing goodness
Love does not know envy,
It knows no boasting,
It does not allow a falseness,
Love does not harm that which is decent,
It drives out self-seeking,
Love does not allow the inner balance to be lost,
It does not bear a grudge,
It does not rejoice over injustice,
It rejoices only in the truth.
Love bears all things,
Is always prepared to have faithful trust,
It may hope for everything and is all-patient.
If love is truly present, it cannot be lost…

   We find permanence which bears all future within it in the exalted triad:
In faith,
In hope,
And in love.
But the greatest of these is love.

(1 Corinthians 13:1-8,13 — J Madsen translation, The New Testament, Floris Books)

Buddha and love – a meditative exercise

When your mind is filled with love, send it in one direction, then a second, a third, and a fourth, then above, and then below. Identify with everything, without hatred, resentment, anger, or enmity. This mind of love is very wide. It grows immeasurably and eventually is able to embrace the whole world. Practise the same way with your mind filled with compassion, then joy, then equanimity. (Madhyama Agama, Sutra 86)

The Greek words for love

The ancient Greek language and the philosophers of ancient Greece recognised eight words for love, reflecting different forms in which it may express itself.

Plato’s dialogue, has love as its topic; Platonic love is a familiar concept, where love is no longer love of the body and its physical beauty but love of the spirit, of the divine, in other human beings. In the speech of Socrates, he speaks of the “ladder of love“: ‘The Ladder of Love is a metaphor that relates each step toward Being as consecutive rungs of a ladder. Each step closer to the truth further distances love from beauty of the body toward love that is more focused on wisdom and the essence of beauty.’ (Wikipedia) Each step of the ladder uses a different word to define it.

‘We have found a path’

I have looked into the deepest depths of man,
I know the world to its foundation stones.
Its meaning, I have learned, is Love alone,
And I am here to love and ever love again.

Christian Morgenstern

Inspiring short texts on Love

from three of Rudolf Steiner’s lectures

“What love is, is something so complex, that no human being should have the pride or audacity to ‘define’ love or to claim to see through it without further ado. Love is complicated. We perceive it, but no definition can possibly express love. There is one picture, a simple sense picture: imagine a glass of water that, the more you pour out from it, the fuller it becomes – that gives us an impression of one of love’s qualities.” (R. Steiner in Spiritual Beings in the Heavenly Bodies and in the Kingdoms of Nature‘, lecture in Helsingfors, 5 April 1912)

“What then is essential for love? What is essential in order that one person love another? It is this – that he be in possession of his full self-consciousness, that he be wholly independent. No one can love another in the full sense of the word if this love be not a free gift of one person to another…
Christ is the bringer of the impulse of freedom from the law, that good may be done, not because of the compulsion of any law, but as an indwelling impulse of love within the soul. This impulse will still need the remainder of the Earth evolution for its full development.” (R. Steiner in ‘The Gospel of John’, lecture in Hamburg, 1908).

“Love is higher than opinion. If people love one another, the most varied opinions can be reconciled… this is one of the most important tasks for humankind today and in the future: that we learn to live together and understand one another. If this human fellowship is not achieved, all talk of esoteric development is empty.” (R. Steiner)

Further texts on love ~

In the realm of the heart of the sun which is Christ,
each person bears the other person’s burden.  True
community is revealed where sin is replaced by forgiveness 
and love.  Forgiveness is not just getting rid of something,
it is also something positive, a gift.  Only those can for-give
who possess inner riches, who can turn evil into good 
through love.
Rudolf Frieling

Egotism erects its center in itself; love places it out of itself in the axis of the universal whole. Love aims at unity, egotism at solitude. Love is the citizen ruler of a flourishing republic, egotism is a despot in a devastated creation. Egotism sows for gratitude, love for the ungrateful. Love gives, egotism lends; and love does this before the throne of judicial truth, indifferent if for the enjoyment of the following moment, or with the view to a martyr’s crown–indifferent whether the reward is in this life or in the next.
Friedrich Schiller

Where there is love and wisdom, there is neither fear nor ignorance.
Francis of Assisi

Ajra Pogacnik through Ana Pogacnik, in their new book,
Being Human in the Now

Obviously the greatest strength we humans can develop is the power of the heart – and thus love! There is nothing more beautiful than to sense pure heart-love. This is the driving force and also the power that moves all of us the most. It is true bliss when I can experience the purity of love – in the etheric sphere the most beautiful coloured patterns, like mandalas, unfold out of her waves, which shine incredibly far.

The space which emerges from this is a pure channel, which opens and offers itself to the spirit world so that the spirit world may work through it.
It is very noticeable when a human being experiences this, and it is unspeakably beautiful and strong when several people experience this in a group. The impact, the waves, the light are unbelievable. We eminently underestimate the power of the heart.

The love of the heart is truly the power to open all doors – even if this is not always visible on the physical level. I can assure you that no deed, no work, no intention, no action that originates and happens from out of true heart’s power will remain without an effect – the impulse of the heart is too powerful that its impact could stay invisible.
(In the words of Ajra, who passed over the threshold 10 years ago, through her sister, Ana.

Corona and the Human Heart:
Illuminating riddles of immunity, conscience and common sense

by Michaela Glöckler, MD, foreword by Branko Furst, MD.
InterActions, September 2021

Dr Glöckler gives new inspiring perspectives on the significant role of the human heart in the development of the immune system, from early embryological growth through to adulthood, and the importance this understanding has for the Covid crisis. The heart is intrinsically involved in the interplay between inner and outer, the dynamic boundary between self and the environment. At the same time it is the centre and life-blood of the human organism, just as the sun is for the living earth. In exploring the wide fields of the heart’s functions, Dr Glöckler sheds light on how immunity is integrally connected with the heart and the inner sense of self. If we disempower the individual through anxieties and fears, or through dependence on outer authority, we reduce the confidence and strength of self; this in turn leads to a significantly reduced ability of the immune system to fend itself against outer influences, such as viruses and other pathogenetic influences.

The author leads us on a path showing how by strengthening our inner spiritual life – our inner sun – we will be strengthening our health and immunity, as well as illuminating riddles of conscience and common sense.

“When people follow their conscience and have the courage to speak the truth, even when it is unpopular, without the fear of stigmatisation or exclusion, not only is the immune system strengthened but also people’s trust in the future.”  M. Glöckler


Newly published!

An extremely interesting book on the Covid-19 crisis has just been published, May 2021, What Covid-19 Can Teach Us: Meeting the virus with fear or informed common sense?, by Dr Thomas Hardtmuth, a German doctor and specialist.
It is often difficult to find articles let alone books on the topic which are taking a holistic evidence-based perspective. This is one of them. It considers the whole human being in body, soul and spirit and how the interplay of all these together contribute to our health or illness. But it also considers health and illness and the Corona virus in the broad consideration of ecology: how modern society in its materialistic paradigm is destroying the health of the environment just as we are destroying our own health, making us prone to both acute and chronic illnesses.

Hardtmuth’s book contains a wealth of information on many facets of the current crisis, including:
– viruses in evolution and health as well as illness
– the immune system and its resilience
– the PCR tests
– risks and benefits of vaccination
– fear’s negative effect on immunity
It’s well worth the read!

Mistaking the Problems for the Solutions: Reversing the Fatal Flaw Behind Our Proliferating Crises

by Kavita Byrd, 26 May 2021

Have you noticed how, since the beginning of this pandemic, we’ve been told over and over that this measure or that proffered by those mandating the pandemic agendas would save us — lockdowns, masks, social distancing, and now, of course, mass vaccinations — but that in fact, each time, the opposite has been true? It’s gotten progressively worse, with new mutations, the promise of endless “top-up” boosters, censorship of adverse effects as well as of natural solutions, and now, with vaccine passports, ever-tightening control and surveillance over every aspect of our movements and our lives…

The fact is that, unawares, we’ve been ushered, step by step, into a new perpetual pandemic order, not our salvation from it and a return to normal, as we believed we were promised. It’s time to wake up, take stock of where we’re heading, and decide if this is what we really want.

The problem is that we have our analysis of the situation, and therefore the solutions, backwards…

And what we have gotten backwards, in the simplest terms, is this: the relationship of nature to man-made agendas, and which are really on our side. Man-made agendas for the private profit of the few have overridden our natural connections with the Earth that have sustained us for millennia, and if we do not recognize and reverse this, we will not survive…”

Kavita Byrd has just published a new book, a compilation of 25 articles she wrote from lockdown in rural India during the first momentous year of the coronavirus pandemic: Chronicle of a Tectonic Year – Point of No Return, Or Returning to Our True Wholeness? Tracing the pivotal arc of events unfolding during this world-changing time, and responding to them in real-time, Kavita brings a spiritual and holistic perspective to how we can meet our crises with grace, wisdom, love and vision, co-creating a new regenerative world of interconnection, justice, thriving, wholeness and communion…

Alternative medical paths – also for Covid?

Many who explore spiritual paths are also interested in ‘alternative’ paths for health and healing, with the primary emphasis on how to maintain health in a holistic way, taking into consideration body, soul and spirit. This rather than the predominant focus of current mainstream allopathic medicine on illnesses, microbes, etc and how we can ‘fight’ them with medicine, usually from pharmaceuticals. The first approach is broadly termed ‘salutogenesis’, the second is ‘pathogenesis’.

Lockdown policies
Click on the picture above for more information

In the current Covid-19 pandemic, one can be excused for thinking from the mass media publicity that the only approach to fighting and overcoming it is through mass inoculation with vaccines, produced at breakneck speed by many pharmaceuticals – the second approach of pathogenesis. There are alternatives, though, based on more holistic approaches to health and healing. There is, as a for instance, a wonderfully encouraging report from a clinic in Germany about the success of homeopathic prophylaxis as well as treatment of Covid world-wide. Click here to view the PDF article from the Haus am Stalten Klinik, translated. The trials have been not just with scores or thousands but with millions of people, from India to Hong Kong to Cuba and more. But to accept this requires an entirely different thinking, one that accepts that there are life-forces at work for keeping us healthy, for growth, for preservation of life.

Little is spoken anymore (in that mass media) about how, from a position of health and holistic views one can protect oneself. Boris Johnson admitted, when he contracted the virus, that it was largely due to his being overweight. Over 60% of the UK population are classed as overweight, including 1 in 4 as obese…  click here for more (article by Richard Brinton)


“The Coronation”

A long read by Charles Eisenstein, full of insights and information on the Corona crisis, woven into an inspiring narrative.

Eisenstein’s wrote this essay March 2020 at the start of the Corona crisis, but his insights are as relevant now as they were then. The Corona pandemic raises many question for the individual and for humanity, including the ‘threat’ of death seen from a materialistic side, which can be transformed through inner work to see death as part of life and  greater spiritual processes. A needed step which the pandemic has prodded us to realise in creative ways in order to combat the otherwise isolation of ‘lockdowns’ and social distancing is the human being’s intrinsic need for community and the transforming effect it can have for our inner soul life. Woven into the narrative is consideration of the physical and scientific details surrounding the pandemic, and how through these alone, with often conflicting elements, it is impossible to arrive at a true understanding of the pandemic’s significance. We are called upon to take broader perspectives. Click here for the website link on Charles Eisenstein’s website, which includes translations in other languages and download possibilities.

Spirituality in Education – countering materialistic trends

(Click on the heading above for a compilation of articles on education, including a video on celebrating 100 years Waldorf Education.)

A very relevant quote from Rudolf Steiner about trust and love – and the importance of this in education…

“It is a question of seeking those forces by which man’s evolution can progress; this is necessary if man is to develop ethical individualism, which holds the community together and fills it with real life.
Such a force is trust — trust between one human being and another. Just as in our inner being we must call upon love for an ethical future, so we must call upon trust in relation to men’s intercourse with each other. We must meet the human being so that we feel him to be a world-riddle, a walking world-riddle. Then we shall learn in the presence of every human being to unfold feelings which draw forth trust from the depths of our soul. Trust in an absolutely real sense, individual, unique trust, is hardest to wring from the human soul. But without a system of education, a cultural pedagogy, which is directed towards trust, civilization can progress no further. In future mankind will have to realize this necessity to build up trust in social life; they will also have to experience the tragedy when this trust cannot develop in the proper way in the human soul.”

Drawing Stability and Nourishment from Within

    Northeastern Alumni

634 subscribers

In a world where very little can be truly relied on, it’s hard to know where to turn for a sense of solid ground beneath our feet. Perhaps the ‘new normal’ is to accept that the ground we stand on constantly shifts as we learn new ways to keep our balance. With practice, we can learn to draw on stability from within ourselves, and through inner strength become our own still point in a turning world, finding the nourishment needed to ensure we have the stamina to keep moving towards our goals.

This session will feature an interactive panel of Raja Yoga Meditation practitioners who will discuss how to find inner strength and stability balancing your personal and professional lives and lead a short meditation at the end of the event.

…from the Nature Spirits  and the need for humans to act!

(A short extract from the book, Nature Spirits and What they Say: Interviews with Verena Stael von Holstein, new edition Nov 2019, Floris Books)

WW (the interviewer): Can you describe what the most urgent tasks for humans in the immediate future will be?
The High One (an elemental)Act!
WW: There are lots of things one can do. Can you be a bit more specific?
The High One: Do what your heart tells you!
WW: That says something different to each human.
The High One: Humans have to begin to perceive the elemental beings and the spirit beings and act with them in the same direction. Otherwise the earth will disintegrate… Humans have to learn what beauty is. They have to learn not to just simply act and produce any kind of objects, but that everything has to be beautifully formed.
WW: What’s most important for the personal development of humans in the immediate future?
The High One: Raise your children in beauty and they’ll find their way in life

For any member of the public looking for something in this direction, it can be a help and guidance. For the sceptical materialists, it is evidence of a different widespread spiritual orientation – that is rapidly gaining ground!

Science and Spiritual Practices  by Rupert Sheldrake

This book, first published in 2017 in hardback edition, is now out in softback! Well known for his book, The Science Delusion, Sheldrake takes the topic further in this new book, Science and Spiritual Practices, exploring how spiritual practices are now being investigated scientifically by many.

Rupert Sheldrake summarizes the latest scientific research on what happens when we take part in spiritual practices, and suggests ways that readers can explore these fields for themselves. For those who are religious, Science and Spiritual Practices will illuminate the evolutionary origins of their own traditions and give a new appreciation of their power. For the non-religious, this book will show how the core practices of spirituality are accessible to all, even if they do not subscribe to a religious belief system.

The Biology of Belief


Some 10 years ago, Bruce Lipton came out with his groundbreaking book, The Biology of Belief. As with Rupert Sheldrake’s books (see above) or Eben Alexander’s book, Proof of Heaven, it especially shook scientists, as here were scientists themselves, not just some spiritually minded mystics, challenging materialistic views of the prevailing science of today and showing how we can apply scientific thoughts and methods to spiritual matters.

New clips keep appearing of Bruce Lipton on the themes of his book, delightful and provocative on various themes. This clipping here appeared on YouTube recently. Enjoy!
