In this pioneering book Rupert Sheldrake shows how science helps validate seven practices on which all religions are built, and which are part of our common heritage: relating to plants, meditation, rituals, gratitude, singing and chanting, connecting with nature, pilgrimage and holy places. The effects of spiritual practices are now being investigated as never before, and many studies have shown that religious and spiritual practices generally make people happier and healthier. For the non-religious, this book will show how the core practices of spirituality are available to all. For those who are religious, this book will illuminate the evolutionary origins of their own traditions and give a new appreciation of their power.
