2017 Parapsychological Association Book Award Winner – Infinite Awareness: The Awakening of a Scientific Mind


One could view Marjorie Woollacott’s Infinite Awareness: The Awakening of a Scientific Mind through two very different perspectives: it’s at once both scholarly and very enjoyable. The reader finds herself going back and forth between enjoying the stories and examples she provides, and the scientific evidence and analysis she offers. This introduces the scientist to new and strange information, and introduces the believer to the rigors of a scientific approach. Dr. Woollacott not only summarizes serious research very clearly but provides many compelling case-studies that seem impossible to explain in terms of our current understanding of the brain. A new understanding of mind and brain is suggested.

In addition to crafting a careful and thoughtful review of the research that supports the reality of NDEs, reincarnation, and energy healing, Dr. Woollacott also describes some of her own mystical experiences. This is perhaps one of the strongest elements in a book that has many compelling aspects. We believe the book will widely read, and should be. The research she surveys and the personal transformation she shares will provoke intense conversation and debate. It advances “the cultural conversation about parapsychology” in a serious and interesting way.

November 2020: Dr. Woollacott is interviewed in the DOCUMENTARY: “WHO WE ARE” by Anthony Chene.

Who are we? What is consciousness? Where does it come from? To what extent are we more than our physical body, our thoughts and our emotions? We have interviewed neuroscientists, meditators, survivors of near-death experiences, and various PhD scientists, to find answers and try to figure out what is our relationship to the universe and who we really are, what is our deep nature.
