One Mind

Hay House


In the 20th century, we were introduced to several subdivisions of the mind: the conscious, unconscious, subconscious, preconscious, and so on. But what we didn’t know was that there was another level of consciousness, an all-encompassing, infinite dimension of shared intelligence: the One Mind. This universal consciousness connects all of us through space and time. Through engaging stories, fascinating case studies, and insights from great thinkers throughout history, One Mind explores the outer reaches of human consciousness.

Andrew Newberg

Why God Won't Go Away

Ballantine/Random House


Newberg and d’Auili’s groundbreaking book uses brain science to understand the biology of belief. “The first work to explicitly probe the biology of religious experience,” according to Publisher’s Weekly, Why God Won’t Go Away blends cutting edge science with illuminating insights into the nature of consciousness and spirituality. A book for believers and non-believers alike, “Newberg’s reverential attitude toward the great unknown is reminiscent of Einstein’s,” says Larry Dossey.

What is Zen?

Shambhala

An accessible and enjoyable introduction to Zen Buddhist practice, the Q&A format features the esteemed Zen teacher Norman Fischer and his old friend and teaching colleague Susan Moon (both of them in the lineage of Shunryu Suzuki). Together, they playfully give a good basic education in Zen--not only the history, theory, and practice but also the contemporary issues, such as gender inequality, sexual ethics, and the tension between Asian traditions and the modern American reality.

Alan Morinis

Everyday Holiness

Shambhala


Alan Morinis, founder and director of the Mussar Institute, recreates his teachings of a little known Jewish traditional practice in Everyday Holiness: The Jewish Spiritual Path of Mussar. With accessible prose, Morinis encourages readers to become mensches or “extraordinary ordinary people.” Spirituality and Health says, “You don’t have to be Jewish to appreciate this way of refining and elevating your inner life and outward actions. Everyday Holiness is an exceptional resource, illuminating how true spiritual transformation can take place in our lives one day at a time.” 

Jane Barnes

Falling in Love with Joseph Smith

Tarcher/Penguin Group


When award-winning documentary film writer Jane Barnes was working on the PBS special series "The Mormons," she was surprised to find herself passionately drawn to Joseph Smith.   Barnes’s unlikely path helps her gain a newfound respect for the innovative American spirit that lies at the heart of Mormonism—and for a religion that is, in many ways, still coming into its own.  Kirkus calls it "a searching, intelligent spiritual memoir" and the author has been interviewed on Leonard Lopate.
