Living The Field

I have signed up for an intensive online workshop that Lynne McTaggert has put together that covers a variety of topics she has researched for her books. She's authored The Field and The Intention Experiment, both bestsellers. I did a book review on The Intention Experiment, and I just ordered The Field. Her research into quantum physics is extensive.

She states that the condensed lessons are a bridge between new science and Spirit. Of course, that is subjective. One has to go with what resonates and feels right. But so far I have found Lesson #1 interesting and well-written. Although I don't necessarily advocate her beliefs, I find her writing impressive and her sources compelling.

You can also get it in audio book.

For $4 per month you get one lesson. Each of these lessons are extensive. I find that I read parts at a time, as the material is dense. Often I need to go back and reread. I can see why you only get one lesson per month. I thought the fee nominal considering the content. If you are interested, here are the first three lessons:

Lesson 1:  
- The Secrets of Healing (part 1): how to begin
- How bio-resonance works
- Using sound as a healing therapy
- The truth about the pineal gland
- A healer reveals how she heals
- Using intention to shape the future
- Learning how to channel

Lesson 2
- Everything you wanted to know about the Zero Point Field - by the pioneering scientist who helped discover it
- The Secrets of Healing (part 2): using the pulse
- How the Vedas provide the secret key to healing sounds
- Tuning in to the Earth's magnetic field
- What makes an intention strong?
 - Finding your own sacred space
- Is consciousness eternal?

Lesson 3
- The science behind altering mass
- How our molecules 'talk' to each other
- The Secrets of Healing (part 3): Using the breath
- Medical breakthroughs from behind the Iron Curtain
- The ancient sounds used for healing
- Using the earth's rhythms to tune in
- How we affect machines
- The power of the collective intention
- Near-Death Experiences: what they can teach us

You can sign up here. If you do, please let me know what you think.

Oh wow, this sounds great. I'll look into it. Thanks for posting, Nancy! Love her books and the outline you provides sounds intriguing.

Brian Miller said... what would you say you have gotten out of it?

Nancy said...

Trish & Rob - Let me know what you think.

Brian - I'm still on the first lesson, so mostly she has talked about quantum physics, and some of the discoveries scientists have made recently. I guess I will have to answer your question a little further along, as I get further into the lessons. I try to keep an open mind, but also don't automatically believe everything I read.

Marguerite said...

Sounds very interesting! Thanks for the review. I will look forward to learning more about her work. Have a great week!

That sounds fab... Looking forward to hearing your updates.

Deborah said...

Nancy, this is the sort of thing I initially find quite interesting, but what usually happens is that my 'old' belief system gets in the way. At some point there will be something I can't accept, and then I throw the baby out with the bathwater, so to speak. I will, though, be quite interested to hear what you get from it.

Hilary said...

I'll be interested in hearing more from you as your lessons progress.

Judy said...

I find myself interested in those type of topics.... but wonder if I could actually absorb it ?

I am new to your blog and I like finding out about new books and new ideas! Thanks.

Nancy said...

Marguerite - I'll keep you updated.

Eternally - Will do.

Deborah - I'm a bit of a sceptic, as well. Lynn McTaggert is very adept at using science and scientists her sources, which of course, legitimizes much of what she has to say. I guess you just have to take what feels right to you and pass on the stuff that doesn't. That's usually how I do it.

Hilary - Yes, that's a great idea, I'll do regular updates.

Judy - First of all hi, and welcome! You would be surprised at what you can absorb, when you read something a couple of times. And that is only for the physics part of it. Let's face it, not many of us read that stuff on a daily basis. But this particular lesson group is not all about physics - by looking at the synopsis it is going to delve into all sorts of things.

The Good Cook said...

Nancy - I love that you have an open, eternally seeking mind. Your quest for knowledge and understanding in all areas is an inspiration to me.

Mental P Mama said...

Wow...I just spent an hour reading more about the pineal gland after coming here...Looking forward to hearing more about this.

Nancy said...

Good Cook - Thanks. :-)

Mama - I remember studying about the pineal gland in college in a course I took on the brain. It is quite the gland!


gee, i love mctaggart's work - and have both those books - which i re-read over and again - thanks so much for letting us know about this - i'm headed over there now to check it out! - have so missed being able to drop by you place as much as i would love to - sometimes life just gets in the way of blogging! :)

have a great day, nancy! missed you!

Nancy said...

Gypsy - Yeah, I've missed you! Let me know what you think about Living The Field.

Geez, I don't think I'm smart enough for any of that. Perhaps you can translate it for people like me.
I admire that you are taking the course.

I read your not feeling too well Nancy, I'm sending get better wishes to you in abundance! I hope you enjoy your workshops.

California Girl said...

I may soon be working (marketing) with a healer who uses sound as one of her techniques. She's especially fond of tuning forks and crystal bowls. I am quite fascinated by the idea and curious to go to one of her workshops.

Nancy said...

Reya - It looks like some pretty interesting stuff.

Cloudia - :-)

Lori - Thank you!

California - Sound for healing is in lesson #1. Interesting. Let us know what you find out.
