Soul/Spirit
Recovering the Soul  

- Larry Dossey, MD

1989

In this thoughtful and thought-provoking book, Larry Dossey provides an alternative view of human consciousness--a theory of mind and being independent of matter, time, and space. As a physician, Dossey has often confronted events and miraculous cures in his patients that cannot be explained by conventional science. Drawing from the latest scientific research, Dr. Dossey synthesizes the ideas of eminent scientists such as Schrödinger, Einstein, Gödel, and Margenau, with the time-honored knowledge of visionaries and mystics to present convincing evidence for a nonlocal, holistic view of mind and reality that can explain transcendental experiences. In short, he provides new proof of the existence of the soul.

Natural Grace highly recommended

- Matthew Fox & Rupert Sheldrake

1997

The chasm between science and religion has been a source of intellectual and spiritual tension for centuries, but in these groundbreaking dialogues here is a remarkable consonance between these once opposing camps. In Natural Grace, Rupert Sheldrake and Matthew Fox show that not only is the synthesis of science and spirituality possible, but it is unavoidable when one considers the extraordinary insights they have both come upon in their work.  Sheldrake, who has changed the face of modern science with his revolutionary theory of morphic resonance, and Fox, whose work in creation spirituality has had a significant impact on people's sense of spirit, balance each other with their unique yet highly complementary points of view. In these inspired dialogues a variety of ancient topics--including ritual, prayer, and the soul--are freed from the past and given new power for the future in the liberated universe Fox and Sheldrake show us.

The End of Suffering highly recommended

- Russell Targ & J. J. Hurtak

2006

The hopeful teaching of this book is that while everybody suffers, most of this suffering is unnecessary--it can be overcome. The legacy of Aristotle is that we think that things must be either true or untrue. Thus we tend to think in terms of polarities; good or evil, right or wrong, Democrat or Republican. This friend-or-foe approach may seem to make life easier, but Russell Targ and J. J. Hurtak assert that this worldview only increases our experience of suffering.

In an effort to overcome the polarity of opposites and the accompanying suffering, the authors combine the wisdom of the East with the findings of quantum physics, and uncover a middle ground that shows opposing sides have only the meaning we give them.

Buddha taught us to live a helpful and compassionate life and to surrender our ego to the peace of spaciousness. The middle path of Buddhism shows that things may also be neither true nor not true, or both true and untrue. Remarkably, recent discoveries in modern physics echo these ancient teachings.

This inspiring book puts these perceived opposites--Buddhism and physics--together and shows, step-by-step, how we can learn to surrender the story of who we think we are and experience an end to our suffering.

Soul Moments highly recommended

- Phil Cousineau

1997

Phil Cousineau has put together a fascinating collection of...intriguing stories [ of synchronicity] from well-know authors such as Houston Smith and Larry Dossey, as well as people from many other walks of life. Borrowing examples from literature, poetry, myths, and movies such as Casablanca, Cousineau shows that synchronicity is an unfolding, a sudden connection to our soul and destiny. Recognizing these soul moments help us follow the thread of our lives and sense the invisible bonds that connect us.
