Joyfully Shattered: A Physician’s Awakening at the Crossroads of Science and Spirituality – Hardback
“Joyfully Shattered is the journey of a physician who became a mystic and now is an escort into the nature of the soul and what is possible for humankind. This is truly a profound book.” -Caroline Myss, Author of Anatomy of the Spirit “I am a scientist and a skeptic. I have studied philosophy at Oxford, the sciences at Ivy League universities, and medicine at the oldest medical school in America. I have deeply questioned everything we think we know and how we think we know it. After more than four decades in the ardent pursuit of truth, I have come to the surprising conclusion that the world is a far more wondrous and mysterious place than most of today’s scientists are telling us.” –From Joyfully Shattered
