Overview

In One Mind, New York Times best-selling author Larry Dossey, M.D., proposes an inspiring view of consciousness that may reshape our destiny. Dossey’s premise is that all individual minds are part of an infinite, collective dimension of consciousness he calls the One Mind. This state—which we can all access—explains phenomena as diverse as epiphanies, creative breakthroughs, premonitions of danger or disaster, near-death experiences, communication with other species and with the dead, reincarnation, the movement of herds, flocks, and schools, and remote healing.
Dossey presents his theory in easily digestible, bite-sized vignettes. Through engaging stories, fascinating research, and brilliant insights from great thinkers throughout history, readers will explore the outer reaches of human consciousness, discover a new way to interpret the great mysteries of our experience, and learn how to develop the empathy necessary to engender more love, peace, and collective awareness. The result is a rich new understanding of what it means to be human and a renewed hope that we can successfully confront the challenges we face at this crossroads in human history.
Even before publication One Mind drew praise from the finest minds of our time. It has been heralded as “landmark,” “a brilliant synthesis,” a “magnum opus,” a “feast” of ideas, “compelling,” “gripping,” and “a major shift in our understanding of consciousness.”

The content of One Mind is excellent which I've grown to expect from the author, Larry Dossey. Unfortunately the E- Book format is terrible. It looks like an after-thought rather than an intention. I fault the Publisher , not the author.

Exploring Holistic Consciousness Dr. Larry Dossey's new book, ONE MIND, presents us with a concept of unified consciousness on a level beyond anything we can comfortably label, categorize, or fully define. Dossey brilliantly tackles such a big topic from a number of different perspectives, so much like the parable of the blind men and the elephant, readers can glean fresh insights as to the entirety of ONE MIND a little at a time.  I appreciate inclusion in the Introduction to ONE MIND of a short list of what we'd expect to witness if such a thing as ONE MIND exists. Dossey explains we would expect people could share thoughts and feelings at a distance with other people and with pets, and that some people could demonstrate detailed knowledge known by someone who has died. We'd expect to witness coordinated movements of animals, people finding lost objects, and people experiencing a sense of direct contact with a transcendent domain. As it turns out, all these things actually do happen, as Dossey further describes in an abundance of fascinating case histories and real life examples.  What I love best about ONE MIND is the sense of joyful peace I feel in my mind and heart while reading it, as a sense of being at one with ONE MIND washes over me. This book is one best savored as one would enjoy a fine gourmet meal, but rather than delighting in visual presentation, fragrance, texture, taste and sound--relishing each new facet of oneness described.  I love all of Dr. Dossey's books, and this one is no exception, even though it differs from many of his previous works by virtue of tackling a subject that cannot be concretely contained. There is a quintessential mystery in the very topic of ONE MIND that defies precise definition or containment within any human labels. ONE MIND will be treasured by those who embrace holistic experience, and who have a sense of reverence for what may ever be just beyond human comprehension to fully grasp. Readers possessing reverence for nature's wonders will best appreciate the call to awakening ONE MIND represents.  Highly recommended!
