When Science Meets God

Rick Sheff, MD, chronicles his 40-year pursuit of the truth about inexplicable spiritual phenomena, healing, and the purpose of our lives in his new book, Joyfully Shattered: A Physician’s Awakeningat the Crossroads of Science and Spirituality

Can science prove the existence of God or the human soul?

Can prayer and other expressions of human intention change the outcomes of scientific experiments or produce physical healing?

Does scientific evidence exist proving Man’s consciousness continues after physical death?

These and many other questions regarding Man’s spiritual nature and our relationship with a “Divine consciousness” permeating our universe are addressed in an inspiring and thought provoking new book entitled Joyfully Shattered: A Physician’s Awakening at the Crossroads of Science and Spirituality by Rick Sheff, MD, a pioneer in integrating science and spirituality.

“Science done well is proving the truth of what today we call spirituality, ushering in a coming new paradigm that integrates science and spirituality,” says Dr. Sheff, whose book weaves together his own personal journey of spiritual awakening with compelling scientific and philosophic insights. His fascinating and moving story has taken him from the bedside of a dying child to Oneness University in India, John of God in Brazil, and the site of Marian visions in Medjugorje. Yet he has learned the true journey, the path to healing and joy for each of us, is inward; and science done well, according to Dr. Sheff, will lead the way.

A former dyed-in-the-wool atheist who studied at Oxford and Cornell University before obtaining a medical degree at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, Dr. Sheff says his quest to scientifically embrace the spiritual nature of existence was launched after witnessing two instances of telepathic communication; one between a father and his dying infant son, and the other between his own wife and her best friend.

“Telepathic communication just didn’t fit anywhere in the paradigm of modern science, a paradigm I had fully bought into, at least up until that time,” says Dr. Sheff. “These experiences and others gave me a first glimpse of the new period of revolutionary science into which we are all heading, stirring the seeker in me with anticipation.”

In an effort to define his own spiritual nature and to more fully live a “spirit directed life,” Dr. Sheff says he examined the teachings of the world’s major religions.

“I’ve explored Judaism, Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, and many other spiritual traditions and practices,” says Dr. Sheff, “all without leaving science behind.”

“After a lifetime of study I have come to understand that every one of us is both a physical and a spiritual being with the Divine essence of love within us — and science is increasingly demonstrating this to be the truth.”
