Seven Spiritual Practices in a Scientific Age
Out Now in the US & Canada
The e-book and audio book, read by Rupert, are out now in North America. You may also pre-order the paperback, due out in September.
To Go Beyond is to move into a place of bliss, greater understanding, love and deep connectedness, a realm where we finally find life’s meaning, experiences for which all spiritual seekers seek.
In this sequel to Science and Spiritual Practices, Rupert looks at seven spiritual practices that are personally transformative and have scientifically measurable effects. He combines the latest scientific research with his knowledge of mystical traditions around the world and explains why these seven practices work. They give a greater sense of connectedness. They make people happier and healthier. He looks at their effects inside our brains, throughout our bodies, and on our relationships. He asks whether spiritual experiences are essentially illusory, or if they give us direct connections with realms of consciousness greater than our own.
