Neuroscientist Marjorie Woollacott on her book Infinite Awareness

Dr. Marjorie Woollacott discusses and sign her new book Infinite Awareness: The Awakening of a Scientific Mind (Rowman & Littlefield; Oct 15, 2015).

As a neuroscientist, Marjorie Woollacott had no doubts that the brain was a purely physical entity controlled by chemical and electrical pulses. When she experimented with meditation for the first time, however, her view changed. Woollacott’s journey through years of mediation has made her question the reality she built her career upon and has forced her to ask what human consciousness really is. Infinite Awareness pairs Woollacott’s research as a neuroscientist with her self-revelations about the mind’s spiritual power. Between the scientific and spiritual worlds, she breaks open the definition of human consciousness to investigate the existence of a non-physical mind.

Marjorie Hines Woollacott, PhD, has been a neuroscience professor and director of the Motor Control Lab in the Institute for Neuroscience at the University of Oregon for more than three decades and a meditator for almost four. She has ongoing grants from National Institutes of Health to study balance and falls in older adults and to study balance and control problems in children with Cerebral Palsy and Down Syndrome.
