Product Details


“Experiencing anew the wonder of someone discovering for the first time that the world is not as it seems is a real treasure. [Mayer’s] challenge to traditional scientists to take these realms seriously is equally refreshing.”—Shift, the Magazine of the Institute of Noetic Sciences

“Logic meets ESP in a risky, profound, convincing new book. Extraordinary Knowing offers a revolutionary new way of understanding the world”—O, The Oprah Magazine

“A remarkable journey of discovery, bringing together personal experiences and scientific experiments, and uncovering and dissolving taboos. Mayer has a unique ability to combine scholarship and sophistication with freshness and curiosity.”—Rupert Sheldrake, Ph.D., author of The Presence of the Past and The Sense of Being Stared At

“This important, paradigm-shifting book beautifully weaves stories of extraordinary knowing with a challenge to science as we know it: to help us honor and understand the true nature of these experiences.”—Andrew Newberg, M.D., author of Why God Won’t Go Away

“An enthralling account, amazing and convincing. Mayer’s work holds the promise of enabling a new level of dialogue between realms of science and spirit.”—Huston Smith, Ph.D., author of The World’s Religions

Extraordinary Knowing breaks the seal on the stronghold of the cool, logical intellect. Inside, we find exciting and irrefutable evidence that what we call ‘reality’ is far more magical and exciting than we’ve ever dreamed. What a fabulous book!”—Christiane Northrup, M.D., author of Mother-Daughter Wisdom, The Wisdom of Menopause, and Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom

“A fascinating exploration of the mind and of what it might be to be human.  Mayer opens up intriguing new vistas for thinking about our deeper connectedness.”—Adam Phillips, author of Going Sane and Side Effects

“A book to rejoice in. Mayer opens thrilling new possibilities for science and its applications.”—Larry Dossey, M.D., author of Healing Words

“A fascinating look at the power of non-local awareness to transcend the limits of the linear mind. Dr. Mayer writes with a sense of awe and fierce intelligence.”—Judith Orloff, MD., author, Positive Energy

“Marvelous…the most exciting and important work I’ve seen in a long time. Mayer has courage as well as brilliance.”—Louis Sander, M.D., Professor Emeritus, Boston University School of Medicine
