The Health Edge: Consciousness, Reality and Health

The brain is not the source of consciousness. Consciousness is the source of the brain.

In this episode of The Health Edge John and Mark share some thoughts of the emerging research in consciousness, unified field theory, reality and how it shapes our experiences of life. They share some reflections on consciousness and health based on theĀ cutting-edge work of Amit Goswami PhD, Nassim Haramein PhD, and Rupert Sheldrake PhD.
