Imagine a united consciousness,an awareness of which all of our minds are a part-and a potential way out ofthe division, greed, and destruction that threaten to engulf our world.
In the twentieth century we wereintroduced to several subdivisions of the mind: the conscious, unconscious,subconscious, preconscious, and so on. But what we didn't know was that therewas another level of consciousness, an all-encompassing, infinite dimension ofshared intelligence: the One Mind. This universal consciousness connects all ofus through space and time. Even now, as you read these words, you areparticipating in the One Mind.
Emerging studies have shown that theOne Mind isn't just an idea; it's a reality. In this book, Larry Dossey sharescompelling research that supports the One Mind concept. These cases includeexperiences of
shared thoughts, emotions, and physical sensations with a distant individual; communication between humans and sentient nonhumans, such as pets; large groups of animals-flocks, schools, herds-behaving in highly coordinated ways; acquisition of previously unknown knowledge from a person who has died; hidden or lost objects found through mental means alone; and direct contact with a transcendent domain through near-death experiences.Through engaging stories, fascinatingcase studies, and brilliant insights from great thinkers throughout history, One Mind explores the outer reaches of humanconsciousness. In it you will discover a new way to interpret the greatmysteries of our experience and learn how to develop the empathy necessary toengender more love, peace, and collective awareness. The result is a rich newunderstanding of what it means to be human and a renewed hope that we cansuccessfully confront the challenges we face at this crossroads in humanhistory.
With One Mind Dosseyshows that we are not alone, that we are all one.
