Please feel free to write me at firstname.lastname@example.org with suggestions as to why the premise of this essay is wrong:
PREMISE: There are no scientific findings which preclude considering consciousness as a causal factor in the universe. Nor are there findings in any area of science – including quantum physics, parapsychology or near-death experience research – which require the consideration of consciousness as a causal factor (both of these statements are in regard to current scientific methodology).
Our book, “Yoga Psychology and the Transformation of Consciousness: Seeing Through the Eyes of Infinity“, is available on Amazon.
There’s a 45 minute CD that comes along with the book. We made the CD for two main reasons. One was to help those who do not have a meditation practice develop one. The first 5 tracks of the CD are brief guided meditations accompanied by music. These include basic breathing exercises, relaxation and concentration practices, and meditations for refining awareness. They are basic meditative practices that can provide a solid foundation for whatever kind of meditation practice you may eventually wish to pursue.
The second reason we created the CD was to provide a contemplative, experiential version of the main themes of the book, including the ultimate causes of suffering, the means for developing a more enduring sense of joy, meaning and purpose, and the relationship between spirituality and social change.
