Larry Dossey’s latest work unflaggingly and convincingly presents the case that we as humans and all of nature are joined in a universal field of interconnected consciousness. Since I read Dossey’s first book, Space Time and Medicine back in the early 80’s, I have been intrigued by his breathtaking ability to portray a fresh view of the universe. In One Mind, that view has both enfolded and unpacked such complex and disparate fields as spirituality, medicine, quantum physics, altered states of consciousness, extrasensory perception, dreams, intuition, emotional resonance, reincarnation, premonition, prayer, healing, psychology, psychic events, and basic sciences. Yet amazingly, he brings all these topics into a unified field.
This book is the capstone of the dozen or so books he has authored. He offers poignantly penned stories, personal experiences, and ignored or unexplained coincidences and mysterious events within the context and framework of a model of our united consciousness. This unity is no mere philosophical or mystical construct. Dossey underpins and buttresses his stories and their often shocking implications with hard, irrefutable science, the research of numerous respected scientists, and data from laboratories around the world. He also weaves into the narrative relevant and powerful quotations from classical and contemporary thinkers, scientists, philosophers, and thought leaders.
