9781594770791: Radical Knowing: Understanding Consciousness through Relationship (Radical Consciousness Trilogy)

A radical reassessment of what we mean by "consciousness" and how we experience it in relation to others

· Shows the importance of integrating different ways of knowing--such as feeling and intuition, reason and the senses--in our approach to life

· Discusses the technique of Bohmian Dialogue where you can learn not only to "feel your thinking," but also to experience true communion with others

In Radical Knowing Christian de Quincey makes a provocative claim: We are not who we think we are. Instead, we are what we feel. Giving disciplined attention to feelings reveals the most fundamental fact of life and reality: We are our relationships. Most of us think we are individuals first and foremost who then come together to form relationships. De Quincey turns this "obvious fact" on its head and shows that relationship comes first, and that our individual sense of self--our "private" consciousness--actually arises from shared consciousness. This shared, collective consciousness is at the heart of indigenous ways of life and their worldviews.

De Quincey explains that participating in shared consciousness literally builds the fabric of reality, and that understanding this process is key to unlocking our potential for higher consciousness and spiritual evolution. He presents the technique of Bohmian Dialogue, developed by groundbreaking quantum physicist David Bohm, as one method for experiencing this powerful process. He also explores the mystery of synchronicity, offering a new understanding of the relationship between matter and mind and the underlying nature of reality.

From the Back Cover:

PSYCHOLOGY / SELF-HELP

“The first book from a philosopher to address consciousness from such a multi-dimensional point of view.”
--Amit Goswami, Ph.D., author of The Self-Aware Universe

“A better understanding of the nature of consciousness may be the best, and perhaps the only, way we can move out of the morass of crisis, chaos, and violence in these troubled times. We need to feel our way (rather than just ‘know our way’) to a more sustainable and peaceful world. Anyone who wants to be part of the solution rather than part of today’s problem should read this gem of a book.”
--Ervin Laszlo, author of Science and the Akashic Field

“Christian de Quincey takes us right to the metaphysical heart of relationship, and, in doing so, pushes back the frontiers of consciousness.”
--Gay Hendricks, Ph.D., author of Conscious Loving and Lasting Love
