Extraordinary Knowing


The Book (from its jacket)

"Hunches, intuition, premonitions, gut instinct--we've all had the experience of knowing something that we couldn't possibly know. We often shrug it off as coincidence, but is it something more? Where does such knowledge come from? Can these experiences be rationally explained?"

"In 1991, when her daughter's rare, handcarved harp was stolen, Lisby Mayer's familiar world of science and rational thinking turned upside down. After police failed to turn up any leads, a friend suggested she call a dowser--a man who specialized in finding lost objects. With nothing to lose--and almost as a joke--Dr. Mayer agreed. Within two days, and without leaving his Arkansas home, the dowser located the exact California street coordinates where the harp was found."

The Class

This website was created to support and supplement the OLLI at Auburn class, Extraordinary Knowing, offered in the 2008 Spring and Fall terms and 2009 Spring term.

Specifically, the class will address the questions:

  • "What is extraordinary knowing? " and
  • "What does extraordinary knowing reveal about Self, Mind, Cosmos and an emerging Worldview?"

Participants will consider and discuss credible, scientific evidence for various modes of extraordinary knowing, including: non-local awareness (i.e., remote viewing, telepathy, out-of-body and near-death experiences, precognition, and past life memories), intention, and remote healing and prayer. They will also have opportunities to discuss their own extraordinary knowing experiences.
