About The Heart-Mind Matrix

Activating the compassionate intelligence of the heart to reconnect to the universe and our spiritual future

• Shows how the heart is connected to our prefrontal cortex and offers a balancing counterweight to the calculating intellect of the lower brain

• Explains how we are stuck in reactive behavior loops resulting from the loss of the nurturing culture of our ancestors

• Reveals how the Heart-Mind Matrix connects us to the universe and is the engine of spiritual evolution

Expanding the revolutionary theories of mind explored in the bestselling The Crack in the Cosmic Egg and The Biology of Transcendence, Joseph Chilton Pearce explains how the heart provides the balancing intelligence to the brain’s calculating intellect, an innate system of emotional-mental coherence lost generations ago through a breakdown of the nurturing culture of our ancestors. By severing ourselves from our heart intelligence, we are left with our selfish, survival-oriented reptilian brains, which create and reinforce “strange loops” between potential and actual reality, leading to our modern world’s endless cycle of self-inflicted disasters and societal crises. Pearce explains that in order to break these cycles and transcend a life focused solely on surviving the results of our own reactive patterns, we must reconnect with the compassionate intelligence of the heart.

Offering a rich variety of evidence, Pearce explores neurological research, lost and enduring nurturing cultures, personal experiences, and accounts from the lives and writings of modern sages such as Jane Goodall, Maria Montessori, and Rudolf Steiner. He shows that by activating the original matrix of the Heart-Mind--the engine of our spiritual evolution and our innate connection to the universe--we can teach our brains new ways to think, amend our destructive behavior loops, and enter into a future of peace, spiritual connection, and conscious evolution.

Praise for The Heart-Mind Matrix

“Of the hundreds of books about evolution I have read, some of which I’ve written myself, this book best captures the sense of what evolution is. It takes you into a realm of celestial playfulness to provide a sense of its living presence, of what it feels like. It is like the difference between looking at evolution through a microscope, or laid out in charts on a wall, and feeling yourself within it, part of it--and able to do something about it.”
David Loye, author of Darwin’s Lost Theory and Darwin’s Second Revolution

“In 20 years of personal experience I have found Joe Pearce to be original, provocative, challenging, insightful, courageous, painfully honest, humble, and generous beyond reason--which places him in my book right alongside David Bohm, Ashley Montagu, Krishnamurti, Socrates, and other world teachers.”
Michael Mendizza, coauthor of Magical Parent, Magical Child

“The startling arc of Joe Pearce’s vision has proved true time and again. We ignore him at our own peril.”
Lee Nichol, editor of The Essential David Bohm

“Pearce explores neurological research, lost and enduring nurturing cultures, personal experiences, and accounts from the lives and writings of modern sages such as Jane Goodall, Maria Montessori, and Rudolf Steiner. He shows that by activating the original matrix of the Heart-Mind--the engine of our spiritual evolution and our innate connection to the universe--we can teach our brains new ways to think, amend our destructive behavior loops, and enter into a future of peace, spiritual connection, and conscious evolution.”
Branches of Light, October 2012

“This is a spiritual treatise of great insight, which incorporates the world of materialistic science. Pearce speaks with equal authority when he is talking about the teachings of Jesus as when he is describing Roger Sperry’s theory of the mind emerging from its matrix/brain and turning back on itself to change that matrix. Pearce is first and foremost a child advocate. It has led him to a profound understanding of the ways in which nurturing our children is also advancing the human species.”
Anna Jedrziewski, Inannaworks, October 2012

“We can live by our minds, and our hearts. The Heart-Mind Matrix: How the Heart Can Teach the Mind New Ways to Think is a spirituality guide from Joseph Chilton Pearce as he presents a new age spiritual guide to living our lives and finding greater understanding of ourselves. Key concepts include exploring where we came from, and discerning a better place for ourselves and our descendants in the future. The Heart-Mind Matrix shows plenty to ponder on spiritual evolution, highly recommended.”
Midwest Book Review, November 2012

“Joseph Chilton Pearce has long been one of my great heroes, and this most recent book, produced in his mid eighties, displays an intelligence at the height of its capacities, with wide-ranging knowledge and depth of wisdom approached by few others. For those who hear the call to greater understanding of self and world, this book can be both an inspiration and a guide.”
Metaguide, January 2013

“Joseph Chilton Pearce recalls and distills teachings of his many mentors and cohorts over his long career...The resultant synthesis bears the imprint of spirituality, field physics, evolutionism and eureka-genius creativity; as well as nurturant natural sexuality, child bearing and rearing, and more – but stands righteously proud in its own right: the evolutionary blue-print of possibility.”
