Emerging Mind: New Discoveries in Consciousnessby Karen Shanor
Synopses & Reviews
Is you big toe capable of thinking? Who's driving your car while you're busy daydreaming? What goes on in your mind while you sleep? Can our thoughts really influence others, or create physical objects? Karen Shanor's The Emerging Mind answers these questions and more.
Drawing on the contributions of Deepak Chopra, Karl Pribram, and others who participated in her acclaimed Smithsonian Institution lecture series, Dr. Shanor delves into such fascinating areas as hypnosis, the development of the "self", multiple personalities, and our many states of consciousness during sex, sports, or while watching television.
Dr. Shanor can help us with some of the problems we face every day, including:
--creating the relationships we truly desire and deserve
--overcoming addictions to alcohol, drugs, or both
--living a complete and fulfilling life
The mind and body are linked in so many strange and powerful ways that a true understanding of one's own mind is difficult at best. The Emerging Mind offers the first step toward that understanding.
Based on the popular Smithsonian Institution lecture series, The Emerging Mind sheds new light on the evolution of the mind and the nature of human consciousness. Dr. Karen Nesbitt Shanor demonstrates how everyday thoughts truly can become things. With never-before-published contributions from outstanding thinkers like Drs. Deepak Chopra, Karl Pribram, Frank Putnam, Jayne Gackenbach, and John Spencer, The Emerging Mind includes valuable information on the study of multiple personality disorders, states of consciousness, hypnosis, dreaming, and the intriguing connection of body and mind.
