Nature: The Spirituality and Science Group will be an online discussion body, with participation open to all Grail members and explorers, with periodic announcements on the Grail listserv and other Grail publications.
Purpose: This group will share resources (books, articles, and websites) to do with the inner development of Grail members individually and communally as a work of the Grail. We are exploring the reality that prayer/meditation results in measurable differences in the physical world. We want to share information about the intersection between spirituality and scientific developments.
Function: The group will be coordinated by co-chairs (currently Judith Blackburn and Nancy Cooney). Group members will communicate electronically, either on a separate listserv or a Grail website forum. Sharing resources is our primary function, but focused, facilitated discussions of particular resources or issues and online courses may be offered in the future.December 8, 2011 at 3:23 pm #522
Resources for the Science and Spirituality Group
Below are a few suggested resources with comments by the person who enjoyed them and the date that they were suggested to the group. Please copy and save this list, then add to it and send it to Nancy and Judith. If you wish to comment on a resource below that you have read, please do so. We will circulate the growing list in late December 2011. As we discern the type of materials that appeal to our group, we will suggest something that we all might investigate together.
Date 12/2011 Material: Book Your Name: Nancy Cooney
Spontaneous Evolution; Bruce H. Lipton, Ph.D. and Steve Bhaerman,
Pub. Hay House, 2009. Comments: Clear view of humanity’s past, and an inspiring vision of our future with some concrete suggestions about how to abandon our current thought patterns in favor of positive, life affirming alternatives. It took our group many sessions to finish it and we are ready to begin again!

http://www.Conscious Evolution, an on-line course that trains Elders from the Future. Taught by Barbara Marx Hubbard and others (check her website for her book, etc. invites people to make their transformation a reality for the world. These websites lead to others. Noteworthy is http://www.Birth2012.com, which is planning for creative and spiritual world action on Dec 22, 2012 as a time of new birth emerges at the end of the Mayan calendar. The question being: How does the Creative Impulse want to be expressed through you?
I haven’t gotten past noticing that these people are working on expressing the vision of Lipton in Spontaneous Evolution. Won’t investigate on-line course unless others are interested. One of these sites is also linked to a blog by tom Atlee who looks at the Occupy Movement from a spiritual point of view and says “a better future is waiting for us to occupy it. Let’s occupy the future together.”
Date 12/2011 Material: book Your Name: Judith Blackburn
Fractal Time: The Secret of 2012 and the New World Age Gregg Braden Pub: Hay House, 2010.
This book contains the information I shared at the GA about how science has measured changes in the earth’s magnetic field during times when humans shared a strong emotional reaction to catastrophe. Braden also explains that we’re in the midst of ending a 26,000-year cycle, the end of an era and the beginning of another (i.e. the Mayan prophecies). He explains spiritual and physical principles in terms of codes embedded in the stuff of the cosmos.December 13, 2011 at 12:29 pm #526
