A wonderful comprehensive perspective on how what appears obvious is ignored if not consistent with societal "norms". Compelling examples of connections between us, appealing to one's scientific and spiritual point of view. Persuasive vignettes and theories, making even dogmatic individuals with at least a sprinkling of curiosity think twice about what this all means.

Dr. Dossey makes very compelling argument about the inter-connectedness of all things. Many documented examples of "unexplained" communication between beings, both human and non. I listened to this book on audible, and I must say I prefer to listen to novels versus fact recitation, but I was able to do other things while listening. Listening to the reading of facts and anecdotes can be dry, but the subject matter was fascinating.

The plural of anecdote is not evidence and the author would do well to remember this. He presents a very shallow exploration of the subject and it is far from convincing. It quickly becomes clear that the author has made up his mind regarding the validity of his premise and is attempting to shoe-horn the facts to fit his cherry-picked data.
For instance, he scoffs at the idea of coincidence, despite us knowing that coincidence is a fundamental and unavoidable aspect of existence. He seemingly has never heard of confirmation bias either, or if he has he chooses to brush it aside. He also glosses over and indeed completely ignores evidence that does not suit his findings, a case in point when he claims that the efficacy of prayer in healing has been proven, despite the fact that the overwhelming evidence such as the STEP study in 2006 show that it has no effect whatsoever. This pattern is repeated throughout the book.
I guess if you already 'know' the truth and you're determined to pick out the bits of data that support your position whilst ignoring the bulk that don't then this is the book for you.

The concept of One Mind is mind-boggling. What a wonderful idea. What an all-encompassing solution to all that baffles us. What a pity that Science refuses to listen to all the evidence.
Dr Dossey presents his case totally. I really enjoy the idea that all knowledge exists in a timeless realm and our brains are filters that keep out all that seems unnecessary, threatening, dangerous or not in our best interests for survival on all levels. Thus, the stance of Science is understood as are all levels of experience and development.
