Buddha and the Quantum, Samuel Avery
Buddha and the Quantum
By: Samuel Avery
Our Price: $12.95
Members Price: $11.66

This is the only book on the market that explains physics and the everyday world in terms of consciousness alone. Space and time and the physical world they define are a structure of consciousness. We can understand the motion of the planets only by putting the sun at their center; similarly, we can understand modern physics only if we put space and time within consciousness.

By: deCharms

Our Price: $19.95
Sale Price: $19.96
Members Price: $17.96

For over a decade, a small group of scientists and philosophers-members of the Mind and Life Institute-have met regularly to explore the intersection between science and the spirit.

How do our philosophical assumptions influence science and the ethics we bring to biotechnology? And how does an ancient spiritual tradition throw new light on these questions? more info

Mind Beyond Brain Buddhism, Science, and the Paranormal, David E. Presti
Mind Beyond Brain Buddhism, Science, and the Paranormal
By: David E. Presti
Our Price: $30.00

Among the most profound questions we confront are the nature of what and who we are as conscious beings, and how the human mind relates to the rest of what we consider reality. For millennia, philosophers, scientists, and religious thinkers have attempted answers, perhaps none more meaningful today than those offered by neuroscience and by Buddhism. The encounter between these two worldviews has spurred ongoing conversations about what science and Buddhism can teach each other about mind and reality.
