"Quantum Mind is at the forefront of a paradigm shift that may be unprecedented in scope..." —Dave Stein, Joint Staff, Pentagon, Washington, D.C.

About the Author

Arnold Mindell, Ph.D., is the founder of a new school of therapy called Process-Oriented Psychology, and is known throughout the world for his innovative synthesis of dreams, bodywork, Jungian therapy, group process, consciousness studies, shamanism, quantum physics, and small and large group conflict resolution.

More About the Author

Arny Mindell developed process work or what is called today, "process oriented psychology" (p.o.p.), in the mid 1970's. Beginning with Taoism, physics and Jungian psychology, by the 1990's he expanded process work to include quantum theory and deep democracy, a deeper form of democracy that applied to all states of consciousness for individuals and groups. Now process work applies to individual therapy, body problems, coma and near death experiences, large group, and organizational change management.

Arny is in private practice in Portland, Oregon, and teaches with Amy in many places. He is known for his development of the "dreambody" and "process work" (process oriented psychology). He is the author of 20 books in 23 languages, including Dreambody, The Shaman's Body, Quantum Mind, Quantum Mind and Healing, and ProcessMind. Arny has an M.S. from M.I.T., was a Jungian training analyst, and has a Ph.D. in psychology. He is also known in the area of conflict management for his Sitting in the Fire and for his integration of psychology and physics, work on dreams, bodywork, relationships, and for interventions in near death situations. His newest work is the ProcessMind, A User's Guide to The Mind of God. His next book, Dance of the Ancient One, published by the Deep Democracy Exchange, will be released early in 2013.

I think ignorance might be better.

This book is easy reading for those who find difficulty in understanding scientific and spiritual concepts.
I am most gratefull for his work, and wish his books were more readily available in Spanish.

In Quantum Mind, Arnold Mindell takes the reader to the common root underlying both physics and psychology to reveal physics as the basic pattern for understanding psychology, and the psychology of perception as the basis of physics. Mindell offers a wealth of practical guidance backed by theoretical insight. He brings quantum awareness to such everyday matters as difficult relationships, physical symptoms and life-threatening illness, spiritual emergence, and the complexities of community life in a world of human diversity. Starting with the psychological foundations of numbers and counting, Quantum Mind takes the reader on a fascinating tour of mathematics, quantum physics, relativity, and cosmology -- showing at each point the myriad levels on which human consciousness and the physical world intertwine and co-create one another. The reader comes to know the universe and individual consciousness as two sides of an interactive mirror reflecting one another. Quantum Mind is a seminal, ground-breaking, enthusiastically recommended, completely accessible survey and analysis that will engage, inform, and challenge students of psychology, psychotherapy, physics, and the symmetry between the mathematics of physics and everyday perceptual experience.

Format: Paperback
Mindell's Quantum Mind is bringing the discussion on the connection between consciousness and matter to a new level. I want to focus on the aspect that was the most exciting to me. He shows, that our definition of physics, of psychology and of religion needs to be updated, and how in fact the progress of both sciences is blocked by how these fields define themselves. Mindell makes it clear, that psychology cannot make the next quantum jump without including the insights from QM, and physics needs the study of consciousness to understand the contradictions it's facing. Mindell brings forth his process-oriented concepts, which bridge these two worlds, and in fact establish a new scientific field, for which a term still needs to be coined.
As a psychologist, I found the theoretical and mathematical aspects of physics really well explained, and liked it, that I had a choice as a reader, how detailed I wanted to get involved in them. I was still be able to follow his line of thought in those instances, when I choose to skip the math parts.

The exercices in the book show, how modern physics and psychological theories are not only abstract concepts, but experiences that we have on an ongoing basis, and how they are connected to our personal development and spiritual understanding of our existence and the universe we live in. We understand Newtonian physics experientially, when the cup that we drop on the floor keeps breaking. We develop a similar intuitive understanding of Quantum Mechanics in addition to the theory, when we do Mindell's exercises at the end of each chapter. This is one of the huge side benefits of this book. QM never became popular knowledge because its concept are not "anschaulich" or intuitive, but rather mathematical. Mindell's book belongs in every personal and public library.

Format: Paperback
Mindell draws an extraordinary picture of the mind as a manifestation of a totality, an indivisible totality of matter, energy fields and spirit. His early studies of nuclear physics and analytical Junguian psychology, come together with an extensive and very lively and very long first hand experience, working with individual clientes, with conflict (racial, religious, gender, etc.), states of conciousness, extreme states such as coma or schizofrenia, seen from a compasionate non judgemental perspective. He is very convincing and easy to read, even when entering dense materials. He has been an excelent guidance for my practice as a body psychotherapist, as a teacher, as well as for my private life. I am most gratefull for his work, and wish his books were more readily available in Spanish.

Format: Paperback
As a Ph.D. physicist teaching at the university level, who does yoga, meditates, and devours the readings of spiritual teachers, I was looking forward to reading this tome that received such great reviews. Unfortunately, I cannot share a great review. This book sold itself as a link between quantum physics, mathematics, and the spiritual/psychological world. I was expecting to read how experiments at the edge between physics and psychology have led to new scientific insights. Instead, what I got was one ANALOGY after another. Here is number theory: the spirit world is "like" this because... Here are the tenets of special relativity: the spirit world is "like" this because... And so on, for chapter after chapter. I read the first seven chapters straight through, and was very frustrated. I then skipped deeper into the book, going straight to the quantum physics principles that interest me the most, to see what he had to say. And again, I was mostly disappointed. This book reports on no new science. It does not make any scientifically viable link between matter and mind. Analogies and metaphors...and nothing more.

I have respect for Dr. Mindell. His credentials are solid and he writes intelligently, and he has apparently done a lot of good for the world of psychology. His analogies and metaphors are quite clever. His ideas are inventive. On the one hand, maybe physicists and neuroscientists could find an interesting thread in one of his ideas, something they overlooked or had not thought of, that could springboard them into new experiments. However, one cannot escape the fact that this is NOT a book that can compete with true science and investigation. To steal a key concept from Mindell: this book is NOT consensus reality.
