Publisher's Summary

Can yoga and meditation unleash our inherent supernormal mental powers, such as telepathy, clairvoyance, and precognition? Is it really possible to perceive another person's thoughts and intentions? Influence objects with our minds? Envision future events? And is it possible that some of the superpowers described in ancient legends, science fiction, and comic books are actually real, and patiently waiting for us behind the scenes? Are we now poised for an evolutionary trigger to pull the switch and release our full potentials?
Dean Radin, Chief Scientist at the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) and best-selling author of The Conscious Universe, presents persuasive new experimental evidence for the existence of such phenomena. He takes us on a thrilling scientific journey and challenges outdated assumptions that these abilities are mere superstition. Focusing on Patanjali's mysterious Yoga Sutras - 2,000 year-old meditation practices believed to release our extraordinary powers - Radin offers powerful evidence confirming that sometimes fact is much stranger, spookier, and more wonderful than the wildest fiction.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

great balance of science and wisdom traditions

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes to any friend who has had questions about parapsychology or the 'side' effects (Siddhi's) from long time meditation.

Any additional comments?

This book is a wonderful balanced perspective on the study of exceptional human abilities. Radin offers an amazing integration of eastern wisdom philosophy and religious perspectives along with solid scientific perspectives. He also gives the reader a clear picture of why these topics have been taboo for so many years in the west. Thus the reader/listener can follow not only the traditional teachings but why science ignored these topics for so long and how far science has come in validating some of the topics. As with his You Tube talks his approach is solid and accessible. But here the reader gets far more detail for anyone thinking deeply about these topics is important. I'm a long time experimental psychologist doing research on dreams and more recently virtual worlds and felt so very informed and updated by this read. I highly recommend the book.

Good, Real Magic may be better.

I preferred Real Magic, but this one is okay too. I am a PHD student so I was really interested in the scientific studies, but they are a bit hard to understand in audio form and would probably be better read in text if you care for the details. I hit the back button a lot because I really wanted to get it. If you just want the gist of things then by all means the audio version should be fine.
