Reconnecting to the Source
RECONNECTING TO THE SOURCE: The New Science of Spiritual Experience, How It Can Change You, and How It Can Transform the World (St. Martin’s Essentials; March 24, 2020) is a powerful new book by ERVIN LASZLO on the science of spiritual experience as a way to our collective salvation. An internationally celebrated figure in the fields of new science, consciousness, and spirituality, Dr. Laszlo presents with this book a groundbreaking message of both theoretical and practical importance.
On the level of concept and theory, it revitalizes living spiritually in the modern world and demonstrates that the so-called “spiritual experience” is a not only real but conveys to the deepest dimensions of our consciousness. And on the practical level, the message delivered is the experience of utmost importance in our rudderless and rapidly changing world. It is a wellspring of natural guidance, a kind of cosmic GPS that may prove to be humanity’s salvation, for it shows that we don’t have to be devout followers of spiritual and religious doctrines to reconnect with the universe.
Reconnecting includes new, never before published contributions from such well-known, high-integrity writers and public figures as Jane Goodall, Barbara Marx Hubbard, Ahi-Gang Sha, and more. Each of these distinguished authors has written about a spiritual experience of their own, wherein they share moments in their lives that are outside the boundaries of the usual and reflect on the significance. Laszlo’s commentaries will challenge you to explore your own boundaries and will forever alter your worldview. Gregg Braden, Larry Dossey, M.D., Christopher Bache, Ph.D., Pier Mario Biava, M.D., David Lorimer, and many more have written strong praise for Reconnecting to the Source.
In addition to his Foreword for this book, Deepak Chopra—himself a world-class mind-body-spirit sage of significant repute—offered this encomium for Laszlo’s magnum opus: The great value of this book is not just its impassioned call to improve everyday life, or its argument for seeing reality as it really is. Both aims are very important, but overriding them is a revolution in what it means to be human. On that basis, Laszlo has hit upon the ultimate salvation of everyone on the planet, in every generation for whom being human is the prime reason for our existence.
