  • Foreword by Andrew Newberg

  • Author Joseph Selbie

    Joseph Selbie makes the complex and obscure, simple and clear. A dedicated meditator for over 40 years, he has taught yoga and meditation throughout the United States and Europe. He is known for creating bridges of understanding between the modern evidenced-based discoveries of science and the ancient experience-based discoveries of the mystics. Selbie maintains several blogs, including Intersections, which explores how spirituality connects with culture and science.

A life-changing guide to understanding your mind and how to change it—for good.

Break Through the Limits of the Brain connects the dots between the discoveries of neuroscience and the meditation-born spiritual experience, as well as offering proven and practical ways to tap into the life-changing, life-enhancing treasure house of our superconscious potential.

The book debunks scientific materialism’s brain-based explanation for consciousness and intelligence—including the brain-as-supercomputer and artificial intelligence models—and explains instead the view of many prominent and open-minded scientists that an all-pervading intelligent consciousness is the foundation of reality—an age-old view shared by saints, sages, mystics, and near-death experiences.

Selbie explores the current neuroscientific understanding of the brain’s dismaying degree of life-controlling influence on our thoughts, emotions, and behavior, and balances that understanding with neuroscience’s discoveries of neuroplasticity and our innate ability to rewire the brain for any new purpose—from the material to the mystical.

Break Through the Limits of the Brain delves into the scientific support for the existence of a subtle, nonlocal reality that strongly suggests that we exist simultaneously in both a subtle and a physical reality—and that our thoughts, life force, emotions, and memories originate nonlocally.

Meditation is a central theme of the book—what it is; how to do it; why it works; its physical, mental, and emotional benefits as measured by neuroscientists; and how it rewires the brain for superconscious awareness.

The book offers proven practices for bringing superconscious awareness into one’s life for success, energy, health, peace of mind, and happiness.

“Joseph Selbie’s book on the brain is another welcome addition to the growing post-materialist literature on the brain and consciousness. Selbie makes the important point that the normal brain filters out most of what is superconscious in us. You will especially like that he makes a good case that rewiring the brain can help expand the brain's ability. So what are you waiting for? Learn to rewire the brain.” —Amit Goswami, theoretical quantum physicist and coauthor of The Quantum Brain and Quantum Spirituality
 
“I loved this groundbreaking book. Break Through the Limits of the Brain joyfully guides us to sacred oneness. Joseph Selbie beautifully describes the high states of spiritual awareness, and more importantly, tells us how to personally achieve these exalted states. The book’s time-proven practices are extraordinary in their effectiveness.” —Joseph Bharat Cornell, author, Flow Learning and Deep Nature Play, Founder & President, Sharing Nature Worldwide
 
“If you have any interest in the brain and consciousness this book is a gem. It starts with a thorough examination of the latest scientific information on how our brains function. But then it goes beyond the current limitations of scientific materialism to pursue the higher realms of awareness, especially the limitless potential of superconscious. Selbie has a clear, lucid engaging style that allows the information to sink in and expand our understanding. Selbie then goes on to practical techniques of meditation to calm, focus, and expand our minds. All in all, one of the finest books I’ve ever read on this subject.”—Jyotish Novak, author of How to Meditate
 
“Great hatchet job on Reality! What I used to think of as ‘me,’ I now understand is just a cascading series of habitual brain synapses. After fifty years of meditation, I have a whole new perspective of what it is and why it works. A brilliant, original, life-changing, and entertaining read. Well done!” —Asha Nayaswami, author of Lightbearer
 
“Selbie shows us how to ‘rewire’ our brains to live at our peak capacity; dancing fluidly between the ‘heaven’ and ‘earth’ of our nature. He integrates insights from cutting-edge vanguard science to reveal the emerging science of super-consciousness.” —Dana Lynne Andersen, artist, author, and founder of The Academy of Art, Creativity and Consciousness
