To go beyond is to move into a higher state of consciousness, to 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. Dr Rupert Sheldrake, writing as both a scientist and a
spiritual explorer, looks at seven spiritual practices that are personally
transformative and have scientifically measurable effects. He combines the
latest scientific research with his extensive knowledge of mystical
traditions around the world to show how we may tune into more-than-human
realms of consciousness through psychedelics, such as ayahuasca, and by
taking cannabis. He also shows how everyday activities can have mystical
dimensions, including sports and learning from animals. He discusses
traditional religious practices such as fasting, prayer, and the
celebration of festivals and holy days. Why do these practices work? Are
their effects all inside brains and essentially illusory? Or can we really
make contact with forms of consciousness greater than our own? We are in
the midst of a spiritual revival. This book is an essential guide.
