One Mind: How Our Individual Mind Is Part of a Greater Consciousness and Why It Matters

By: Larry Dossey, MD

In One Mind, Dr. Larry Dossey 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 has drawn 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.”

"For 30 years Larry Dossey has led us toward a larger, more generous vision of medicine and healing.

Inspiring, reassuring, and deeply helpful."
