Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Relying on their strengths--he a pioneering physicist and she a highly respected spiritual healer--Targ and Katra reveal scientific evidence and gripping stories to prove the innate psychic power of the human mind. This collaboration first began when Katra helped Targ miraculously cure himself of metastatic cancer. Skeptics will probably find themselves impressed by the thoroughness of Targ's research as well as his highly plausible conclusions. For example, Targ reveals for the first time the startling results of declassified CIA experiments in psychic spying during the Cold War. Believers in spiritual healing will find support in Katra's impressive credentials and rich storytelling. The authors share a gift for engaging but spare prose, which makes for highly palatable reading, despite the density of ideas and information. --Gail Hudson --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This hybrid work covers the phenomenon of spiritual healing from both a scientific (Rusell's) and a personal/subjective (Katra's) experience. The scientific part of the book will not convince anyone who is still in denial about the existence of psi phenomena, as it doesn't discuss hard statistical data and parapsychological methodology. If that is what you are looking for, read Radin's "The Conscious Universe" instead. However, for the reader who has accepted the reality of psi phenomena, but wants to learn more, it gives a good introduction to the recent history of parapsychological research, and to what this research has taught us about the factors that affect psi performance.
For me however, the highlight of the book is Katra's part. Her deeply personal, moving account of healing people through spiritual means has an immensely uplifting quality, and it is because of that that I particularly recommended this book to people who are suffering from a chronic illness. This might help them to keep up hope, or to regain it if lost.

Format: Paperback
Russell Targ shares his personal experiences with remote-viewing experiments at Stanford Research Institute, and includes fascinating photos and sketches that show the amazing accuracy remote viewers have frequently demonstrated. Jane Katya shares her personal experiences with healing touch, and how she came to work in the field of healing using Therapeutic Touch. Targ and Katya gracefully take the reader from their real-life stories to the current physical theories which can best explain non-local healing and viewing. This book is spell-binding, since it so carefully examines seemingly inexplicable phenomena from a very down-to-Earth point of view. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in enriching their lives through remote viewing and healing.

Format: Hardcover
"There is no doubt," write the authors, "that we have contact with the future in a way that shows unequivocally that we misunderstand our relationship to the dimension of time." There it is -- the turning point for the entire ballet of this stunning book. Thank you, Russell Targ and Jane Katra for bringing between these covers the stories of your professional lives and the pas de deux of such different approaches -- cutting-edge physics research and spiritual healing. It is a brave and beautiful book. Message to those who would disparage this book: first educate yourselves a little bit about quantum physics. Then come back and read it again with all your heart.

Format: Hardcover
We hear that the next big leap for humans will be to integrate science and spirit. This pioneering work is a worthwhile and original effort in that direction. It is flawed in some avoidable ways, some unavoidable in any pioneering endeavor.
This is a serious but relaxed work on psi and human potential. Targ discusses the un-glamorous experimental evidence for psi, and illustrates in reasonable detail why psi is to be understood rather than believed or treated as subject to faith. His view is non-religious, suggesting that we can know our divinity, and that it is not an exotic property, but a mundane one. He discusses government-funded work recently declassified. Most interesting are his impressions on the 20th century uses of psi and consequent clues about its actual nature.
Katra chronicles her development as a healer; she differentiates between psychic/energy healing and spiritual (but not religious) healing (based on the non-locality concept, and making oneself a transmitter). This is fascinating, and again, moves our understanding forward in ways that the usual, glowing, New Age testimonials generally do not.
Targ and Katra undertook the difficult task of co-authoring on the basis of common, but highly individual experiences with psi. Their experiences converged in healing Targ's illness, a significant basis for joint authorship, but did not necessarily a guarantee of editorial success.
Overall, the excellent content could have been more accessible with a different title, better organization and better development of Katra's material. The title, while attractive to New Age audiences, undermines the book; the word 'miracle' has been cheapened lately, now suggesting magic. The authors work hard to explain that psi and healing are not magical.

Format: Paperback
Psychic Healing Is more Interaction than Operation
How many psychologists does it take to change a light bulb? Only one, but the light bulb has to want to change!
We can change material things by operating on them, but to change people, we employ an interaction with them. One of our basic defining assumptions about humans is that we have choice. It's a weak assumption, one that is easily threatened by the specter of ESP.
We assume our minds to be our personal, private castle, free from all uninvited intrusions. An unexpected experience with telepathy, however, especially the first time, often elicits the reaction, "it was creepy." ESP calls personal boundaries into question. Whether or not the acceptance into society of ESP will be a blessing or a curse depends upon how we will integrate the crisis in boundaries ESP will bring.
It is a hopeful sign when the technological advances in ESP merge with developments in spiritual awareness to produce an enlightened approach to things psychic. A new book, Miracles of Mind: Exploring Nonlocal Consciousness and Spiritual Healing (New World Library) represents such a merger. The first author, Russell Targ, is a physicist and the foremost pioneer in research on remote viewing. His work has made it commonplace among consciousness workers to assume that your mind has a "nonlocal" dimension that enables it to interact with things, events and persons in other times and places. The second author, Jane Katra is a public health educator with a special gift for spiritual healing. When Targ developed cancer, he met Katra who shared with him her skills at "immune system coaching." Thus Katra introduced Targ to spiritual aspects of the nonlocal mind, such as prayer.
