Wolf, a theoretical physicist and author of The Quantum Leap ( LJ 11/15/81), focuses on his personal involvement with shamanism. He describes his experiences as a participant in shamanic ceremonies around the world and endeavors to explain shamanic practices in terms of quantum physics. He supports his contention with nine hypotheses that link the two seemingly divergent practices. Unfortunately, his narrative is extremely disjointed and skips back and forth between unrelated episodes. While he includes many fascinating descriptions of shamanic rituals, his finished product is basically a book of reminiscences and musings. His study may be of value to libraries seeking books on personal spiritual experience, but its inherent subjectivity is a limiting factor.
Butterflies are Free to Fly: A New and Radical Approach to Spiritual Evolution is a free ebook written to examine how quantum physics and recent scientific experiments are radically changing our understanding of life, our reality, and our spirituality – and giving us a new model for the way our universe works and the practical steps to take toward true joy and excitement and peace of mind.
This book is, along with “Seth Speaks”, and a few of the other “Seth” books, the most important set of books I have ever read. The information comes from a personality known a “Seth”, a teacher who was channeled by Jane Roberts. Seth has lived many lives on Earth, and his perspective, as one who once lived here but now “resides” in another dimension, is riveting. I know many people will find it very weird to consider the idea that a “dead” person could channel information, but after reading this book I think you will be convinced.
