Product description


"Joseph Chilton Pearce has profoundly altered my view of religion and culture and has left me with both the understanding and the tools to go beyond limitations to the joy of love and all its possibilities."--Carla Hannaford, Ph.D., author of Smart Moves: Why Learning Is Not All in Your Head and Awakening th

"Rarely does a single book encompass such far reaching vistas and disturbing revelations as The Biology of Transcendence."--Robert Simmon, The Metaphysical Guide to Tucson Gem & Mineral Shows 2004

"Revolutionary significance for anyone...seeking clues on how to develop the magnificent but frustrated potential that is ourbirthright."--Charles Eisenstein, Progressive Health, Summer 2004

..".a survey of spiritual transcendence so linked to science that it earns a place of respect in the spheres of science, health, and metaphysics."--The Midwest Book Review

"This book must be read by anyone wanting a better future for the world."--Dr. Roger Taylor, Caduceus, April 2007

." . . an engaging blend of scientific research and personal accounts of altered states, [this book] outlines the anatomy of levels of consciousness."--Fran Shaw, Parabola, Fall, 2003

"This is a masterpiece of science and spirit, love over law, and the stunning biological truth of the capacity for transcendence that the universe has placed within us. There is much in this work that could solve the problems of history. Here, in brilliant and incisive words is the foundation for a new mind and a new world."--Jean Houston, author of A Passion for the Possible and Jump Time

"The Biology of Transcendence will transform your worldview and change forever your understanding of our past, present, and future. Riveting, insightful, and penetrating, Pearce has laid out one of the most startling and powerful visions of our future. . . . You won't be able to put this book down, and when you've read it, you won't be able to stop talking about it with everybody you know."--Thom Hartmann, author of The Last Hours of Ancient Sunlight

"I've spent over thirty years pioneering wellness programs, always trying to grasp why it is such a struggle for people to attain and maintain the well-being that is their birthright. In the last decade I finally came to appreciate what Pearce discovered long ago: that the heart and key to wellness lies in how we nurture our young--enabling them to thrive, rather than merely survive."--John W. Travis, M.D., M.P.H., author of Simply Well and Wellness Workbook
