More About the Author

New York Times best selling author Gregg Braden is internationally renowned as a pioneer in bridging science and spirituality. Following a successful career as a Computer Geologist for Phillips Petroleum during the 1970s energy crisis, he worked as a Senior Computer Systems Designer with Martin Marietta during the last years of the Cold War. In 1991 he became The First Technical Operations Manager for Cisco Systems, where he led the development of the global support team assuring the reliability of the internet in its early days. For more than 22 years, Gregg has searched high mountain villages, remote monasteries, and forgotten texts to uncover their timeless secrets. To date, his work has led to such paradigm-shattering books as The Isaiah Effect, The God Code, The Divine Matrix, and his most recent, Fractal Time: The Secret of 2012 and a New World Age. Gregg's work has been published in 27 languages and 30 countries and shows us beyond any reasonable doubt that the key to our future lies in the wisdom of our past.

Customer Reviews

A very worthwhile read.
Catherine Gallanti
This book presents scientific backup for ancient spiritual prophecies about the earth changes we are living through.
Peggy A. Kornegger
Walking Between The Worlds by Gregg Braden is the best book I've ever read and I'm on my 9th time to read it.

The implications of this book still affect me today. Gregg Braden intellectually synthesizes current geological events with past-cultural predictions, quantum physics with non-hyped "new consciousness", while never pretending to predict. He weaves a non-denominational tapistry of possible outcomes for our collective consciousness, while never preaching. Bravo.
We need more books like this from scientists that think way outside of the box, and have the compassion to want to share their ideas with us. Reading "Awakening To Zero Point" is refreshing, cerebrally stimulating, and comforting that even just one human amongst us billions thinks this way.

Awakening to Zero point is a great book by Gregg Braden , a geologist, sacred journey guide and spiritual man. I have met Mr Braden in person and think he is a fabulous man, that really cares about the earth and with a profound intuitive insight regarding the changes that we are undergoing. The book is a collection of theories and ideas that attempt to bring together what many of us are feeling intuitively ( "things on earth are changing" and "the past of humanity is not as we thought" ) with some solid evidence and scientific fact. I think Gregg does a very good job at this and provides plenty of food for thought.
The science in the text can be definitely improved upon though, as has been pointed out by a few reviewers with a scientific background. As a former physicist i too found that some of the science in the book is approximative. Maybe gregg's science, although better than that of most new agers, is not as good as some of the people for which science is their daily occupation. I too had some slight uncomfortablness at some of the statements within the book, from a scientific prospective. However I would not for this reason throw out the baby with the bath water. Gregg's science might not be fool proof, but his his intuition surely is. I ultimately found this book very valuable. At least it is a movement in the right direction. Science and Spirit will soon be meeting, if humanity is to progress at all. Gregg has definitely put a very positive foot forward in this endevour as well as sharing of his experience and very positive essence in this text. A very worthwhile read.

Braden's books not only speak to my intellect and knowledgeable mind, but also to the essence of truth which lives within us all. Anyone interested in a search for the truth will appreciate this book. If we have at times felt "separated" from other people, not "connected", we will begin to understand how all of us share a "onenes" in our mind, body, and spirit. The key is to realize that although we are all the same, some people are willing to make an effort to reach out and grasp new meanings which may be completely foreign to other people. Yet, we take that step anyway. Then, when we least expect it, we begin to find insights and understandings which touch our hearts. I enjoy all the Braden books, this one is no exception.

In the face of the lies and deceit that surround our world today, clearly we are going through a time of tremendous change. This change demands the accountability of Truth in our lives. Greg Braden shares a philosophy about the current paradigm shift we are moving through. He explains how we can embrace and move through the changes in creative and empowering ways. His words make sense, and combine science and spirit in a way that is surprisingly refreshing. I love the way he thinks and he provides hope and inspiration during a time often filled with confusion and despair. I've seen (and own) his video series "Walking Between the Worlds" and it was this presentation that made me want to know more about Greg and the way he thinks. I need his words in my life, and I know I will be reading more of them. "Those that claim to choose peace, prosperity, health and vitality for their world must first become those attributes themselves." Truer words were never spoken, they are the true spirit of healing the planet we all share.

...then this is a necessary reading. I've always had a very rational approach to the question of who we are and what is our place in the universe. These are questions that physical science has been unable to answer, let alone philosophy or religion.
Well, this book took me a step forward. It has changed my vision of the world, it has shown me how energy and matter relate to each other, and it has hinted at me that there is so much more to discover. All this in a book that is easy to read.
And if like so many of us, you've been having this unexplained intuition that some change is at hand for humanity and the world in general, well, just read this book and draw your own conclusions. Gregg Braden, thank you for a wonderful book.

Format: Paperback
This book is full of much speculation and doubtful "facts" that are supposed, somehow, to be linked. I find it less convincing than most other reviewers.
The book starts with a series of "Wow!" events that are implied (without evidence), to be connected. Included are: the end of the cold war, increased numbers of earthquakes, climate change, new viruses, increases in the number of alien sightings and crop circles, and unspecified "studies" and "evidence" that someone other than the Egyptians built the pyramids. And get this:
"Probable evidence from within our own space program, indicating that technologically advanced societies have existed on at least one other planet within our own solar system..."
Actually, the evidence from the space program is that there were no other technologically advanced societies in our solar system. Talk to NASA.
It is easy to see how this book would impress people with no background in science. For example, on page 11, under the heading "The nature of stillness: Zero Point", there are two paragraphs describing the basics of absolute zero: zero degrees Kelvin / minus 273.15 degrees Celsius. This is all good if pedestrian science, although it might appear extraordinary to someone unfamiliar with it.
Anyway, Braden draws incorrect conclusions from it. He states:
"The point at which temperatures reach absolute zero... is referred to as Zero Point."
Actually, zero Kelvin is called absolute zero not zero point. (Or even Zero Point.) Of course Braden has to call it Zero Point because that is the title of his book. A non-existent connection is then made, as Braden morphs seamlessly with no logic or justification to:
"Earth is experiencing early stages of the events that will provide the experience of Zero Point...
