Peter Russell (born May 7, 1946) is a British author and meditation teacher focusing on consciousness and spirituality. He studied Theoretical Physics, Experimental Psychology, and Computer Science at Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge. He has been both celebrated and criticized for his unification of science and spirituality. He is of the Non-dualism school of modern spirituality.
The TM Technique: A Skeptics Guide
Part One introduces Transcendental Meditation, its origins; how it works -producing a state of profound rest, exactly opposite to the accumulation of stress and tension; and its implications for health, clarity of mind and creativity. The second part looks at the higher states of consciousness to which TM can lead. Part Three considers the implication for society as a whole.
The Upanishads: A New Translation
A new translation with Alistair Shearer of selections from the nine principal Upanishads—one of the cornerstones of Indian philosophy. Passed down by word of mouth for five thousand years, they teach of an absolute and unified field of intelligence that underlies and permeates all creation. This divine ground is our own nature, and to bring our lives into conscious harmony with it is the ultimate purpose of human existence. The Upanishads make the mind soar and the heart sing, and point the soul to freedom.
- The Brain Book
"Within our heads lies one of the most complex systems in the known universe..." This handbook for brain users sets out the brain's structure and development; examines its function and potential, discussing memory, imagery, mnemonics, the holographic theory of mind, reading and note-taking. Of special interest to anyone wishing to expand their appreciation of the brain, and a great help for improving reading and study skills.
Originally published in UK as The Awakening Earth
In 1982, he published The Global Brain. Furthering the "Gaia hypothesis," he points to the fragile regulating system that exists between all living and non-living things with the aim of showing people that recognizing the interconnectedness of all things, helps us to become more conscious of our daily actions and ultimately discover a more peaceful way to live with ourselves, each other and the planet. Well ahead of the internet and information and communications technologies' boom, Russell observed "if Earth is a collective, self-regulating living organism, what then is the potential of humanity as seen through the eyes of the planet?"
- The Creative Manager (with Roger Evans)
The unprecedented pace of change demands that we draw upon our creative resources as never before. This book explores what it really takes to be creative in the face of complex new challenges. It is about drawing upon the well of creativity within each of us, and using it to empower ourselves. Because the principles it deals with are common to each of us, it offers information and inspiration to everyone.
In 1998, he published his bestseller Waking Up in Time: Finding Inner Peace in Times of Accelerating Change. In it, he describes a way to wake up to the mounting planetary crisis while deepening our connection to an inner tranquility.
The three authors consider the roles of art, science, education, goals and values, world views, religion, spirituality and, above all, consciousness - for the state of our consciousness is the key issue underlying virtually all others.
"An extraordinary discussion among three of the very finest minds of our time, spirited in its exchange, compassionate in its embrace, brilliant in its clarion call to awaken conscience and consciousness" -- Ken Wilber
- From Science to God: A Physicist's Journey into the Mystery of Consciousness
From Science to God is the story of Peter Russell’s lifelong exploration into the nature of consciousness. Blending physics, psychology, and philosophy, he leads us to a new worldview in which consciousness is as fundamental to the cosmos as space, time, and matter. Integrating a deep knowledge of science with his own experiences of meditation, Russell arrives at a universe similar to that described by many mystics—one in which science and spirit no longer conflict. The bridge between them, he shows, is light. From Science to God invites us to cross that bridge to a radically different, and ultimately healing, view of ourselves and the universe—one in which God takes on new meaning, and spiritual practice a deeper significance.
