Those familiar with his work know that Sheldrake's science background and integration are unquestionable especially when viewed in the relevant context of a relevant to the whole, and that whole being the entire universe and no less. for there are no boundaries between the individual and the
cosmos and Creation /Creator other than consciousness or lack thereof
This book is highly suggested for those who want to more fully experience the deeper level of true science which is based on curiosity and creativity, rather than scientific dogma.
Throughout history "animism' and the soul of everything from atoms to living organism has been revered and understood as a part of the "science of living" in relation to Nature and thus the creative potential of the Universe
Spirituality is a method of integrating our seeming separation from Creation and Creator and healing the loss of wholeness that accompanies reductionist evolutionary science
As Darwin repeatedly stated. "It is love and mutual cooperation that defines the truly "fit"...and not a random selection.
A conscious Universe and a conscious creator and a whole human being are thus closely related
A wonderful cosmology to balance out our "pseudo-scientific "world that forgot that "mystery" in the essential Nature of all life and principles and living.

Having read this I can see how a lot of happy non-religious people do pragmatically incorporate more than one of the suggested practices into their lives - in other words Sheldrake’s insight and intuition are actually borne out by what I can observe in my friends, almost none of whom adhere actively to any faith. If you feel discontented, disconnected, aimless or rootless this is a self-help book that empowers its readers to select their own directions towards a life less ordinary (however unremarkable it may look from the outside).
There are several scientists who are almost household names such as Brian Cox and David Attenborough whose presentations of science are inspirational. Rupert Sheldrake will join soon them , since he explores science in a way which asks deep questions of the nature of reality which goes beyond the materialism of the secular age. “Science and Spiritual practices” shows the limits of modern science and indicates the value to the individual of exploring new ways of thinking and feeling .This book is written for everybody, religious or not and Rupert explains any unfamiliar concept for all to understand. He encourages us to investigate spiritual practices such as meditation and the flow of gratitude in the hope that the practice will not only make us happier , but we will have a personal experience during the journey which will transform our lives .This is a great and valuable book and will become a classic
A good primer for beginners just branching out, but nothing new for those well acquainted with these practices.
