Review:

"The book is excellent - informative, easy to read, well-researched and organized, and most of all it has a wonderful spiritual atmosphere, the breath of Infinity behind every page."

"The authors range widely through contemporary thinking in consciousness studies, philosophy of science and psi research, providing provocative challenges to traditional thinking at every step."

"The book is excellent -- informative, easy to read, well researched and organized, and most of all it has a wonderful spiritual atmosphere. I can feel the breath of Infinity behind every page." --Michael Miovic, M.D., attending psychiatrist at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute, Boston--Michael Miovic, M.D.

"The book is excellent informative, easy to read, well researched and organized, and most of all it has a wonderful spiritual atmosphere. I can feel the breath of Infinity behind every page." Michael Miovic, M.D., attending psychiatrist at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute, Boston--Michael Miovic, M.D.

"For the reader who is sincerely interested in knowing about the positive, transformative changes and states of consciousness that are possible to be experienced by right personal endeavor, this book will be extremely helpful."
From the Foreword by Roy Eugene Davis, direct disciple of Paramahansa Yogananda and Director of The Center for Spiritual Awareness, Lakemont, GA --Sanford Lakoff

"This book tackles in an elegant yet incisive manner one of the necessities of our time - the synthesis of science and spirituality. Bringing to bear the insights of Indian philosopher-sage Aurobindo Ghose, it helps us understand our experiences from a spiritual perspective. It offers optimism about our world's future which is needed in this time of transformation. Read it."
Elmer Green, Ph.D., Psychophysicist and Biofeedback Pioneer --Sanford Lakoff

"Developing a global consensus about the nature and evolution of consciousness provides a major challenge for 21st Century thought. Nothing could be more important for an understanding of human nature. Drawing largely on the integral yoga philosophy and psychology of Sri Aurobindo, the authors provide an in-depth account that sheds a very different light on the view currently prevalent in the West. Fascinating and provocative."
Max Velmans, Ph.D., Cognitive Psychologist, author of "Understanding Consciousness" and science editor of "The Blackwell Companion to Consciousness."
--Sanford Lakoff

"Don Salmon and Jan Maslow liberate us from the limited prison of ego psychology and awaken us to the realm of real consciousness, the true consciousness that lies at the root of all of life. Here is a map to help us escape the confines of our contemporary culture, a way to understand what it really means to be fully alive to our infinite nature. Here are signposts for individual and collective transformation: read them!"
Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee, Sufi teacher and author of "Awakening the World: A Global Dimension to Spiritual Life" --Sanford Lakoff

"What a beautiful and hopeful book Don Salmon and Jan Maslow have given us! In an age of oppression and anxiety they offer us a path of hope and redemption. But don't think this is another book on how to relax and breathe properly under stress, though such books surely have their place. It is rather a deeply intelligent and compassionate exploration of the profound evolutionary possibilities of the human soul and spirit." Allan Combs, Ph.D., Psychologist and author of "The Radiance of Being" --Sanford Lakoff

"The human future depends on a spreading awakening to a spiritual reality that Western cultures have been prone to deny. Salmon and Maslow bring together ancient Eastern spiritual teachings with the most advanced of Western science to help us penetrate the illusions of culture, helping us not only to understand the nature of spirituality, but even more, to experience it. A profoundly important book." David C. Korten, Ph.D., board chair YES! magazine and author "The Great Turning: From Empire to Earth Community" --Sanford Lakoff
