Editorial Reviews

Review

Her unique, compelling book is her creative synthesis of science and spirituality, can effectively guiding readers toward a positive future. -- Ewert Cousins, Professor Emeritus of Theology, Fordham University.

Mary Coelho has created a guidebook for every serious contemplation of the cultural and spiritual significance of contemporary science. -- Brian Swimme, California Institute of Integral Studies

From the Back Cover

"I have feelings of deep gratitude for the work that Mary Coelho has done. As I have read it I am sometimes moved to tears as it confirms what my heart has known all along. Mary’s gift is that she is at home in the scientific venture but she is patient and careful as she demystifies the language and learning of its quantum pioneers." Sr. Miriam Therese MacGillis, OP, co-founder of Genesis Farm, Earth Literacy Center, N.J.

"Many times as I was reading, I thought of the unnameable people in the future who will be served, touched, guided, inspired by her insights, scholarship, intuition and vision. Mary Coelho has created a guidebook for every serious contemplation of the cultural and spiritual significance of contemporary science. A distinguished and vibrant work integrating science and spirituality in ways directly relevant to contemporary society’s deepest challenges." Brian Swimme, California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco, Ca. & Dir. of the Center for the Story of the Universe.

"In this time of global crisis, the human race is caught up in the greatest transformation of consciousness in history. To make the transition into the future, we need guides who are learned in both science and spirituality and are gifted with a vision of hope for the future. Mary Coelho is such a guide for she has been trained as a scientist and as a specialist in classical Western spirituality, including the vision of Teilhard de Chardin, Thomas Berry and Brian Swimme. What makes her book unique and compelling is her own creative synthesis of science and spirituality that can effectively guide the reader toward a positive future." Ewert Cousins, Professor Emeritus of Theology, Fordham University.

Mary Conrow Coelho, Awakening Universe, Emerging Personhood: The Power of Contemplation in an Evolving Universe (Wyndham Hall 2002)
Mary Coelho has done a great deed for the universe. Awakening Universe Emerging Personhood is a gift to all who seek to understand the transformation of human consciousness occurring today. With a solid grounding in the latest scientific understandings of the natural world in its cosmic context, a thorough knowledge of philosophy and religion, and a transparent telling of her own story using the insights of psychology, Coelho sets forth the basis for a new paradigm of human action. She shows the deep connections of the Western contemplative tradition to the insights of quantum physics and cosmology in a compelling way.
This book is a work of significant scholarship that brings materials from diverse disciplines together in a coherent story. Practically every page contains fresh insights into the nature of humans as totally at one with the universe while totally unique. Divisions between God and humanity, the environment and humans, religion and science no longer appear relevant in a universe that expresses itself in many different forms while maintaining its unity.
Coelho has created a guidebook that illuminates a path to enlightenment in a time when we face critical choices about our future. We can continue along the path of division, defining our enemies, asserting our arrogance and acting in ways that betray our ignorance and destroy our home and its inhabitants.

The author is both a biologist and a theologian. As a biologist she recognizes the importance of evolutionary theory; and, as a theologian, she pinpoints human self-consciousness as "the crack or gap" that the theory cannot explain and that, therefore, through contemplation, provides the breakthrough to God.

Anyone who wants to integrate the universe story and new cosmology into a contemplative spirituality will find this book ESSENTIAL. Not just good, not just wonderful (it is both those things) but an ESSENTIAL COMPANION.
