The Way of the Explorer
IONS founder and Apollo astronaut, Edgar Mitchell, details his quest to reconcile the seemingly disparate worlds of science and faith, combining elements of history, science, and theology to explain the mysteries of human consciousness, the universal connectedness of life, miracles, and human destiny.
praise for "The Way of the Explorer"
"Edgar Mitchell is one of those rarest of scientists—a true explorer. His journey into outer space has been matched by a lifelong journey into inner space, where he investigated the final frontier, the nature of mind, and returned with nothing less than an extraordinary new science of life." —Lynne McTaggart, best-selling author of The Field and The Intention Experiment
"In the history of the human race, 12 people have set foot on the moon. Now one of them has written an important book, an account of a modern-day hero's journey. Astronaut Edgar Mitchell pursued a vision, ventured on a quest, risked great danger, and obtained uncommon wisdom. Now he has returned to share it. We would be wise to listen." —Larry Dossey, MD, author of Healing Words
"Profound and articulate...Edgar Mitchell has really dug into the main paradoxical issues [of science and religion] and comes up with a resolving viewpoint. An inspiring piece of literature." —Harold E. Puthoff, PhD, physicist, Institute for Advanced Studies at Austin
"Reading astronaut Mitchell's story is like reading a long-awaited letter from a friend--a friend who has journeyed far and wide and seen so much beyond most of us that we read with bated breath. Mitchell's writing is exciting, insightful, and majestic, at once a logical, scientific, and moving spiritual vision. As I read the book I felt I was looking through his eyes, sensing the unity of the world and seeing our planets and universe for the first time." —Fred Alan Wolf, author of The Yoga of Time Travel and Taking the Quantum Leap
