In this follow-up to Science and Spiritual Practices, Rupert Sheldrake looks at seven more spiritual techniques, to explore whether their effects only take place “within” the brain, or whether they do in fact involve connecting with a greater consciousness. These practices include prayer, psychedelics, fasting and the spiritual side of sports. Dr Sheldrake is in an almost unique position of being a scientist and author of more than 85 technical papers, who is also sympathetic to spiritual practices. Consequently this meticulously annotated book is an invaluable resource for those of us who want to stand up with more confidence for what we have experienced and what we believe in.
