Our ideas about what we are and what we are capable of lag far behind what the science of the last hundred years has shown us. We are vibrational fields in a sea of vibrational fields, open to all potential. We are dynamic, learning beings with unavoidable power to influence one another and the surrounding world. The time has come to integrate these discoveries into our lives and the ways we raise and educate our children.Carla Hannaford, bestselling author of Smart Moves draws on science, our heritage of human wisdom, and her own experience as a biologist, parent and educator to advance an empowering new view of reality. Playing in the Unified Field offers inspiration, models and practical advice for raising our families with coherence, presence, love, and trust in their capacity to learn and grow.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Library Journal
In this scientific self-help, educator and biologist Hannaford (Smart Moves: Why Learning Is Not All In Your Head) uses research into atoms, photons, and earth fields to illuminate the capacity for and importance of living in the moment. She also explores the power of chronic stress to limit us, the overuse of prescription drugs for depression, and the proven effectiveness of therapies like exercise, community, and listening to music. Every chapter is heavy on science theory, propelled by Hannaford's sure voice and enthusiasm, and all focused toward revealing the everyday reality of human consciousness and relationships. Science, it turns out, can turn some of our most basic ideas on their heads and provide the basis for seemingly extra-sensory phenomena; for instance, the electromagnetic fields generated by the heart and brain extend outside the body, and can influence the mental and emotional states of those around us. Hannaford explains how scientific research continues to expand upon, rather than circumsribe, the potential of human consciousness, broadening horizons for all kinds of human experience.
