Books By Rupert Sheldrake

  1. How Animals Talk

    How Animals Talk

    By William J. Long

    Exploring animal telepathy and communication, William J. Long theorizes that animals are much more intelligent, emotional, and moral than we have thought, and share with us an innate ability to sense the presence of other living beings. Long’s findings on the impact of our presence on animal life--and the cost incurred in separating ourselves from them--is more relevant today than ever before.
  2. Chaos, Creativity, and Cosmic Consciousness

    Chaos, Creativity, and Cosmic Consciousness

    By Rupert Sheldrake
    By Terence McKenna

    In this book, Sheldrake, Abraham, and McKenna discuss questions that lie at the intersection of physical and metaphysical reality, opening windows into what Jean Houston calls "the dreamscapes of our everyday waking life."
  3. Morphic Resonance

    Morphic Resonance

    By Rupert Sheldrake

    In this updated edition of A New Science of Life, Rupert Sheldrake presents further evidence for his controversial theory of morphic resonance--the observation that past behavior influences present organisms, unconfined by time and space.
  4. The Presence of the Past

    The Presence of the Past

    By Rupert Sheldrake

    Rupert Sheldrake lays out new evidence in support of his theory of morphic resonance, which proposes that all self-organizing systems inherit a collective memory and that evolution is an interplay of habit and creativity rather than merely “survival of the fittest.”
  5. The Rebirth of Nature

    The Rebirth of Nature

    By Rupert Sheldrake

    Rupert Sheldrake, one of the world's preeminent biologists, has revolutionized scientific thinking with his vision of a living, developing universe. In The Rebirth of Nature Sheldrake transports us to the threshold of a new paradigm in which traditional wisdom, intuitive experience, and scientific insight can co-exist and be mutually enriching.
  6. Science and Psychic Phenomena

    Science and Psychic Phenomena

    By Chris Carter

    Parapsychology is routinely attacked in the mainstream because its very existence challenges doctrinaire materialism. Chris Carter calls us to disregard this church of skepticism and to reach our own conclusions by looking at the vast body of psi evidence.

  7. The Sense of Being Stared At

    The Sense of Being Stared At

    By Rupert Sheldrake

    Rupert Sheldrake proves that our minds and intentions extend into our surroundings with invisible connections that link us to each other and the world. His 25 years of research into telepathy, the power of staring, remote viewing, precognition, and animal premonitions draws on case histories, questionnaire responses, and the results of experiments carried out with more than 20,000 people.
  8. Seven Experiments That Could Change the World
    Examines the realities of unexplainable natural phenomenon and provides explanations that push the boundaries of science.
