Peter Russell

Peter Russell. M.A., D.C.S., is the author of ten books and producer of two award winning videos. His work integrates Eastern and Western understandings of the mind, exploring their relevance to the world today and to humanity's future.

He has degrees in theoretical physics, experimental psychology, and computer science from the University of Cambridge, England. In India, he studied meditation and Eastern philosophy, and on his return took up research into the psychophysiology of meditation at the University of Bristol.

He was one of the first people to introduce human potential seminars into the corporate field, and for twenty years worked with major corporations on creativity, learning methods, stress management and personal development. His principal interest is the inner challenges of the times we are passing through. His books include The Global Brain, Waking Up in Time, and most recently From Science to God.

Current Work

I am currently working on two new books. One on letting go, which brings together the various insights and discoveries from my own meditation work. It proposes that letting go is not something you do, but you can learn how to let it happen in just about any area of life.

The second book presents a view of the cosmos in which consciousness is fundamental—and the ultimate source of what we perceive as space, time, and matter. Many have proposed this point of view from metaphysical perspectives, but I am arguing for this from conclusions in contemporary science, showing how they point to the very same picture.

In recent years, I have developed various fine-tunings to meditation practice which allow one to let go into profound stillness more easily, and am beginning to teach these in my workshops and retreats with very encouraging results.

I am also working on a complete remake of my video The Global Brain. WWW.PETERRUSSELL.COM 

The next great frontier is not outer space, but inner space: research and development into the untapped potentials of human consciousness.
