Book Description

1 Mar 2004
How can I get a better life? After I heal something, why am I not satisfied? What is the point of spiritual practice? Why do some people cruise effortlessly throughout their days while others struggle? This volume, the first in a series, presents what we consider the best of this new generation of techniques for acquiring peak states of consciousness, along with a unifying model that ties biology, psychology, therapy and spirituality into a single whole. A groundswell in new ways to approach therapy, psychology, spirituality, shamanism, quality of life and mental health is happening worldwide. Until now, most of the new breakthroughs have been done in isolation. In this book, many of the key technique creators share their work with each other for the first time - and give you a glimpse of the excitement and camaraderie of working in a field that changes daily, with new discoveries, syntheses and controversy. This book gives laymen and professionals an experience of what cutting-edge research in the fundamental questions of mankind feels like. The contributors for this volume are: The Inner Peace Process - Grant McFetridge The 15 Minute Miracle - Jacquelyn Aldana Biocybernaut Brainwave Training - Dr. James Hardt Resolving Dualism with PEAT - Zivorad Slavinski

5.0 out of 5 stars The real stuff 11 July 2005
By Spiritual Finder - Published on Amazon.com
I've looked at many books on how to transform your life. Most focus on the old paradigm of "work at it until you get it" with regards to transformation.

This book takes a novel approach - we have these peak states and capabilities inherent in us as our birthright and simply need to find ways to access them.

This book is not for those who want to stay comfortable - it will expose you to theories and concepts which stretch your mind and beliefs. If you are willing to go on a exploration of the more exotic parts of life, then try out the work presented in this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Finally one that lives up to its billing 10 Dec 2006
By MF - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've purchased many books on the mind, spirit, human potential, etc. Finally, here is one that lays out a model and then tries to work from it to logical conclusions. The main author makes no claim to perfection - he strikes me a a guy who is doing the best he can and just wants something that works. Most others I've read were either wedded to their pet theory and would ignore reality if they clashed (most religious type practices) or else they were very general or personal without detailed working guides (such as some of the fascinating writings of Robert Anton Wilson).

My interpretation of this work is that the techiniques aim to heal what their theory says are the traumas that block "optimal functioning" (my words) of the "self". I'll let the book speak for itself, but it is unique (in my experience) and refreshing.

I didn't give it 5 stars only because it seems some of the core meat will be in Volumbe 2. Granted, this Volume 1 does have a number of techniques and does explicity state it is a book on both theory and applications. The techniques are user friendly and I am excited about Volume 2 whenever it will be issued.

If you are serious about wanting to "upgrade" your "self" I strongly and highly recommend this work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Borderline Science for Serious Students 31 May 2007
By Enrico Biasiolo - Published on Amazon.com
this is not the usual cock and bull book. i never rated a book before because they were not worth the effort.

this is the product of a scientific approach and research on peak states of consciousness. It proposes an interesting realistic model for health and quality of life. this book is packed with knowledge derived from experiments and research.

i lived in a peak state myself for a while and now thanks to this book i can see my life from a different perspective. at the time i though mine was a god-given experience and in the same way god did take it from me. NOPE. this book showed how actually i got into, it, how i lost is, and more importantly how i can claim it back, something that i have been trying to do all my life.

you should definitely buy this book if you think you know waht a peak state or peak experience is. i actually recommend this book to anyone, even though i know it amy be difficult for people who do not know what they talk about unless they suspend their disbelief.


well worth your bucks.

This book is great. Challenged all that I thought I knew about states of consciousness. Fresh perspective with a firm foundation to go further in explaining, understanding and controlling states of consciousness.
