Lynne McTaggart, one of the preeminent spokespersons on consciousness, the new physics and the science of spirituality, is the award-winning journalist and author of six books, including the worldwide bestsellers The Field and The Intention Experiment. As editorial director of What Doctors Don't Tell You (www.wddty.com), she also publishes one of the world’s most highly praised health newsletters and runs highly popular health and spirituality teleconferences and workshops.
Lynne is also the architect of the Intention Experiments, a web-based ‘global laboratory’, involving an international consortium of prestigious scientists and thousands of people in countries around the world testing the power of intention to heal the world. Most recently her book The Intention Experiment and its website were prominently featured in the plotline of Dan Brown’s latest blockbuster The Lost Symbol.
Of Lynne's latest book The Bond: Connecting Through the Space Between Us, Deepak Chopra says, "Once in a very great while, a book comes along that shifts our sense of reality, or extols a new way of living. Lynne McTaggart's extraordinary new book, 'The Bond,' does both."
For hundreds of
years our worldview has been shaped by a scientific story describing
isolated beings competing for survival on a lonely planet in an
indifferent universe. Life, as defined by modern science, is random,
predatory, purposeless and solitary. From these paradigms –
the universe as machine, man as survival machine – we have
fashioned our world.
evidence from physics and biology tell a radically different story:
that we exist in a dynamic relationship of connection and constant
influence — that cooperation, even sacrifice, is intrinsic to
the biological makeup of all living things.
is not confined to physics. Extraordinary new discoveries in biology
and the social sciences have profoundly altered our view of the
relationship between living things and their environment.
Frontier biologists, psychologists and sociologists have all
produced evidence demonstrating that individual things are far less
individual than we thought they were.

– a connection so integral and profound that there is no
longer a clear demarcation between the end of one thing and the
beginning of another. The world essentially operates, not through
the activity of individual things, but in the connection between
them — in a sense, within
the space between things.

subatomic particle or full-fledged living thing. It is the

discoveries not only hold vast implications about how we choose to
define ourselves, but also vast implications about how we ought to
live our lives. They suggest that all our societal creations, so
invested as they are with a sense of competition and supremacy of
the individual, run counter to our most fundamental being.
