Back in print with exciting new content from one of the leading spiritual theorists in the world, The Silent Pulse uses quantum physics to explore how the human body and mind are made up of rhythmic waves and how measurable vibrations touch us emotionally and creatively. George Leonard takes readers on a search of self-discovery and a journey into the limitless possibilities of human potential.
Drawn from scientific theory and research, particularly from modern quantum physics, The Silent Pulse is a major contribution to understanding fundamental human paradoxes and possibilities uncovered through the personal experiences of ordinary and extraordinary people. With a compelling synthesis of theoretical physics, brain research, evolutionary theory, social psychology, and studies in consciousness, along with leading-edge findings about rhythms, light, perception, and alternative realities, The Silent Pulse captures a poetic beauty within a true adventure story.

The Way of Rhythm and Harmony
The Rhythms of Relationship
Flesh, Spirit, and Emptiness

From the Back Cover:

"At the heart of each of us there exists a silent pulse of perfect rhythm, made up of wave forms and resonances, which is absolutely individual and yet connects us to the universe." - George Leonard

From how the rich vibrations of music touch us emotionally to how the body and mind are made up of rhythmic waves, The Silent Pulse takes readers on a journey of self-discovery into the limitless possibilities of individual potential.

"George Leonard's writings on human potential have an ecstatic quality that turns the body toward its deepest intuition; an artful balance between the integrity of the individual and the mystery of the physical universe. Leonard captures that delicate dance-the silent pulse-between the mystical as literally cosmic and the ethical as truly personal." - Jeffrey J. Kripal, Chair of Religious Studies at Rice University and author of Esalen: America and the Religion of No Religion

"Leonard's synthesis on leading-edge research about consciousness, rhythms, light, perception, and alternative realities has the accuracy you'd expect from a long-time magazine editor and journalist. But he transcends all categories in this book: it is poetry, science writing, and adventure. It is hard to imagine that anyone could read it without being changed by it." - Marilyn Ferguson, author of The Aquarian Conspiracy

Drawn from scientific theory, particularly modern quantum physics, The Silent Pulse details the experiences of ordinary and extraordinary people who have uncovered remarkable truths about human capabilities. The exercises in this book, based on Leonard's workshops, will lead you to experience your own silent pulse of perfect rhythm.

About the Author:

A native of Georgia, Leonard received a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of North Carolina and Doctor of Humanities degrees from Lewis and Clark College and John F. Kennedy University. He served with the U.S. Air Force as a combat pilot in the South Pacific during World War II and as an intelligence officer and magazine editor during the Korean War. He describes his adventures along the human frontier of the 1960s in his 1988 memoir, Walking on the Edge of the World. His latest books include The Life We Are Given, and The Way of Aikido: Life Lessons from an American Sensei.
