From Science to God (2005)

Available worldwide

Since the dawn of science, incredible discoveries have been made that have improved living conditions and saved the lives of millions. Despite these great advancements, science still cannot explain the origin and nature of consciousness. Being conscious and self-aware are amazing qualities of human beings. Even more amazing is the possibility that the capacity for experience and consciousness may not be limited to human beings or animals.

While science has given us a great explanation of the world and how it works, it has not given us a sense of how to use this knowledge. Many of the spiritual traditions of the world have worked for centuries to awaken and empower consciousness. The practices of mindfulness and projecting compassion have had profound effects on individuals and communities. Maybe what we need is an integration of scientific understanding with the wisdom gleaned from the world’s spiritual traditions.

The answer to the question "what is life, consciousness and awareness are simple. If you want to understand them then I invite you to contact me and I will share what I have been given to understand, and the perspective necessary for scientific discover to validate them.

Excellent piece of work with so much valuable information; clear and to the point!

I really enjoy the clarity with which Peter Russell puts forward these concepts. He introduces a theme which, for many, may appear complex but does so in a very accessible way.

Peter Russell, more than anyone else I have come across, is able to verbalize the state of consciousness we all need to work, he has a wonderfully warm, radiant aura I enjoy being around, if just via watching him on screen. Thank you!

Excellent explanations and analogies in this film make what could be very complex ideas easy to grasp.

Our perception may not be reality, in the sense we think. Good brain food.
