The Astonishing Science of How
Your Brain Creates Material Reality
by Dawson Church
The idea that "thoughts become things" has become a meme in popular culture. It's held as a firm proposition in metaphysics, and some spiritual teachers ascribe infinite powers to the mind. But are these claims scientifically accurate? What does the scientific evidence tell us about the scope of the human mind to transform thoughts into reality?
In Mind to Matter, award-winning author Dawson Church examines the scientific facts and reviews the studies that show, spep-by-step, exactly how our minds create material form. As each piece of the puzzle falls into place, the science turns out to be even more astonishing than the metaphysics.
Throughout the book, Church shares illuminating case histories—up-close, authentic personal accounts of people who had an experience of turning mind into matter. Meticulously researched evidence is presented in highly relatable form, using engaging, understandable, nontechnical analogies. Photos and illustrations enrich the text.
Mind to Matter shows us that as we take charge of our individual power to create, we have the potential, as a species, to catalyze a transformation of our whole world.
"If you've been wondering whether your thoughts really do affect your life, this marvelous book will make you a believer ....

"Dawson Church's careful scientific work shows that the Law of Attraction isn't just a metaphysical proposition—it's a scientific reality .... As the boundaries of what you believe is possible for your life are stretched by Dawson's work, they may never snap back to their old shape."
