From the Author:
Every thing is both vibration and matter. The latest research in biology and physics shows convincingly that everything is intimately connected through fields of energy that comprise The Great Field. Separation is therefore an illusion.
We experience the Great Field through the latest addition to the brain, through the soul and the heart via intuition, and in those higher states of consciousness sought in most religious traditions. James uses psychology to enrich scientific research that creates a theory that describes how the universe formed itself, and how we are formed in the mistlike energy of our souls.
PRAISE FROM WONDERFUL PEOPLE:
“The soul is one of the most venerable, enduring images of spiritual traditions
worldwide. In The Great Field, John James brings new information to this
ancient concept, and in so doing helps bridge the worlds of modern science
and spirituality, which is one of the most urgent tasks of our time.”
—Larry Dossey, MD Author, The Extraordinary Healing Power of Everyday Things
“The Great Field is a book and topic whose time has come. We need to
explore the nature of life in a way that has never been done before. It is time to
experience and accept what we cannot explain. Read on and open your mind
to the true nature of life and its mystery. Outer space cannot tell us what exists
within us and our inner space and the true nature of The Great Field we are
part of and exist within.”
—Bernie Siegel, MD Author, Love, Medicine & Miracles
“The Great Field is a provocative synthesis of cutting-edge scientific, spiritual,
and therapeutic data supporting the once and future potential of humanity and
our place in the universe. It is an inspiring read that will raise questions for
some and provide answers for others. It is a book for seekers and a book of
hope written from vision and love.”
—Jenny Wade Author, Changes of Mind
“The Great Field brings together fascinating and accurate scientific evidence
on the power of our souls - in a way that is refreshing, new and vital. A
very, very exciting and uplifting book, it gets to the very heart of health and
