Praise for The Power of Eight
“Lynne McTaggart leads the way in guiding us to an enlightened perspective on the power of consciousness. It’s exciting to recognize what humanity can do, should we put our minds to it!"
—Marianne Williamson, New York Times bestselling author of A Return to Love
“The Power of Eight is at once a revolution and an evolution in understanding. With brilliant scientific measures to match the inspired experiments in group based healing this book spells the end of orthodox materialism and opens us to both proof and practice of how the powers of a group intention can transmute and transform our pathos and our pain.”
—Jean Houston, Ph.D, Chancellor, Meridian University
“This is a monumentally significant book, a once-in-a-generation work that will turn the tide in how we unleash the power of healing for each other and for the world. Drink in its meticulous and transparent scientific method, its countless uplifting stories of vivid healing breakthroughs and its breathtakingly luminous vision. Then go manifest The Power of Eight."
—James O'Dea, Peace activist, former President of the Institute of Noetic Sciences and author of Soul Awakening Practice
“This book is the miracle we’ve all been praying for, a beautifully written blueprint to awaken us to the power we collectively possess to manifest miracles of healing, transformation and peace both in our lives, and in our world. The brilliant Lynne McTaggart elegantly guides us through the undeniable research and mounting evidence that proves, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that together, we can indeed co-create all things good, healthy, whole and beautiful. If you only buy one book this season, I suggest you make it this one, for truly, this is one of the most important and urgent messages of our time.”
—Katherine Woodward Thomas, New York Times Bestselling Author of Conscious Uncoupling: 5 Steps to Living Happily Even After
“The Power of Eight is an extraordinarily powerful and important achievement, chronicling a ten-year quest by Lynne McTaggart. As an investigative journalist and researcher, Lynne’s clarity, curiosity, compassion and complete integrity shine throughout as she follows the evidence for the ‘power of eight’, wherever it leads. The supporting science and the remarkable true stories of the many people involved in her numerous experimental and experiential intention processes over a decade offer an inspiring and empowering portal into the profound powers of healing we all possess – and their exponential effects when we come together in groups.”
—Jude Currivan, PhD cosmologist, healer and author of The Cosmic Hologram: In-formation at the Center of Creation
“Lynne’s research on intentional healing documents the long-recognized belief that mental qualities such as love and hope are actually the best antidotes in fending off disease. As Lynne’s scientific research reveals, eight individuals, broadcasting a focused, coherent healing intention, can profoundly influence the field and fate of the recipient, but the healing resonance created feeds back and enhances the lives of each of the group’s participants. In the face of our current evolutionary upheaval, the knowledge offered in The Power of Eight is a powerful contribution to healing our planet. “
—Bruce H. Lipton, PhD, Stem cell biologist and bestselling author of The Biology of Belief, Spontaneous Evolution and The Honeymoon Effect
“The Power of Eight is the perfect manual to heal your life, yourself, and others. Combining science and mysticism with practical evidence, this book will teach you everything you need to know about accessing your true innate capacity---that is, your mind really does affect matter and healing others is how you heal yourself.”
—Joe Dispenza, D.C., New York Times Bestselling author of You Are the Placebo: Making Your Mind Matter

Outbursts of passion in unison
The only thing that appears to be needed is any sort of group. Throughout the ages, small circles of people have held a special significance in many cultures and among indigenous groups. Prayer groups have been used in most religions. The greek word homothumadon is used to described group prayer in the Bible. The word itself is a compound of two words: homou ('in unison' or 'together'), and thumuous ('outbursts of passion' or 'rush along'). The word emphasizes group prayer as a passionate unity, with a single voice.
"When people are involved in a passionate activity […],
they transmute from a solitary voice
into a thunderous symphony."
A familiar feeling rarely experienced
Group meditation and prayer certainly promote a sense of unity among the participants, but usually not as deep as in homothumadon. In homothumadon, the participants move away from their isolated state of individuality into a pure bond with others. It's a state that is familiar when felt, but rarely experienced. It has nothing to do with the outcome and everything with the act of participation. There is one essential element: other human beings.
Working for the greater good
A sense of connectedness increases altruism. People have a natural desire to help when they temporarily step into a state of oneness. Working for the greater good produces more than just a warm feeling — it's strengthening for both mind and body. There are health-giving effects in focusing on anyone besides yourself.
"Something about the desire
to do something for someone else,
with no strings attached or personal benefit,
has an impact on health and wellbeing
far and above that of anything else […]"
Lynne McTaggart provides glimpses into what's possible when we connect in homothumadon. A Power of Eight group is more than just a collection of separate individuals. They are not just connecting, they are merging. It's as if the individuals in the group become one brain together. There's something more going on here that we don't understand. Some things in our lives are just beyond our explanation or understanding. It's a fascinating book!
