Welcome to the world of science and spirit
Do spirits exist, and if so, can they play a useful if not essential role in our individual and collective lives?
Are there sources of invisible information and guidance waiting to be tapped and harnessed if we are just willing to listen?
If we, in our essence, are spirits too, can we come to see this possibility when we look at ourselves in the mirror? And can we draw on this great inner potential and power with wisdom and love to change our ways accordingly, before it is too late for humankind?
I believe that science not only can address such questions, but in the process can potentially help increase our ability to receive spiritual information accurately, and we can then act upon it safely and wisely. [from the Preface]
Praise for the work
“Gary Schwartz has been on a remarkable journey throughout his lifetime. His body of work is inspirational to me because his passion to bring science and spirit together is dominated by an empirical doctrine that is unimpeachable. His latest research as recounted in The SacredPromise is likely to impress even the most diehard skeptic. I am proud to recommend this book and to heap as much praise as possible upon my friend, Gary Schwartz.”
“Sacred Promise is elegant, rigorous, and groundbreaking—research
science at its most innovative. Gary Schwartz’s exposition of ideas interfacing
theory, paradigm, method, and anecdotes shows academia at its best.”
—Dr. Lisa Miller, associate professor of psychology at Columbia University,
editor of the Oxford University Press Handbook of Psychology and Spirituality,
and cohost of the TV show Psychic Kids
“Professor Gary Schwartz PH.D’s procedures of experimentation that no honest skeptic could argue with.”
—Deepak Chopra, author of The Third Jesus and Life After Death
“Postmortem survival has long been a taboo topic in scientific circles. Gary
Schwartz had ingenuity and a pioneering spirit to go deeply into this area and
not be afraid of what he found. You’ll be fascinated by this book!”
—Charles T. Tart, PhD, author of Altered States of Consciousness and The End of Materialism
“For more than two decades I have had the privilege of working with Gary Schwartz.
He has amazed me not only with his insights and hard scientific approach, but also his
willingness to explore and then share his findings on very controversial topics. Even if you
do not believe in the premises of The Scared Promise, your intellect and heart will be
teased enough so that you just might open your mind and start to believe that all this,
and more, is possible.”
—Jerry Cohen, CEO, Canyon Ranch
“This book is an absolute must-read for anyone who struggles with faith, love, death,
and aspects of divinity.”
—John Edward, author of Crossing Overand The Infinite Quest
