CONVERSATIONS WITH REMARKABLE MINDS

Skepticism and scientism's attack on body, brain, health and spirit

Dr. Rupert Sheldrake is a British biochemist and plant physiologist who has experimented with innovative field theory in plants and animals, including humans, to account for the causative formation of the deeper structures of biological development and collective consciousness.  His research has included efforts to reach a greater understanding of memory, perception, cognition and the debate over consciousness.  Over the past several decades Rupert developed his theory of morphic resonance and morphogenic fields.  Dr. Sheldrake has written extensively on morphogenic theory since the publication “A New Science in Life “in 1981.  His book “Science Set Free” is a thorough critique of the flaws in the dominant mechanistic scientific model. And his most recent book is "Science and Spiritual Practice: Transformative Experiences and Their Effects on Our Bodies, Brains and Health."  His website is Sheldrake.org
