Author of “The Field” and “The Intention Experiment” offers an astonishing new take on prayer

LONDON, ENGLAND, October 04, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ — Award-winning author and acclaimed researcher Lynne McTaggart is well known for her work in bridging the gap between science and spirituality. In her new book, “The Power of Eight: The Miraculous Healing Effects of Small Groups,” Lynne shares her surprise discovery that those who pray for the healing and wellbeing of others within a small, focused prayer group actually affect transformational healing upon themselves. The book came out on September 26, 2017.

“At some point,” says Lynne, “I began to acknowledge that the group-intention experience itself was causing big changes in people: changing individual consciousness, removing a sense of separation and individuality, and placing members of the group in what can only be described as a state of ecstatic unity. With each experiment, no matter how large or small–whether the global experiments or the Power of Eight groups–I observed the same group dynamic, a dynamic so powerful and life-transforming that it enabled individual miracles to take place. I recorded hundreds if not thousands of these instantaneous miracles in participants’ lives.”

In “The Power of Eight,” Lynne delves into the larger context of the science behind this phenomenon. She also explores esoteric and historical religious practices to explain how and why sending altruistic thoughts of healing in a group setting turned out to be a fast track to the miraculous for participants.

“This story is about the miraculous power you hold inside of you to heal your own life,” Lynne says, “which gets unleashed, ironically, the moment you stop thinking about yourself.”
