Can the power of intention measurably affect our physiology? Explore the mind-body connection from multiple levels with Dr. Marilyn Schlitz, director of research at the Institute of Noetic Sciences.
On the individual level our intention influences our immune system; while on the social level one person's intentions have the ability to influence another's physiology, consciously or unconsciously.
Transpersonal intentionality, or psychokinesis, holds the possibility that distant prayer can have a measurable effect on the physiological system. The challenge is in how the nature of consciousness manifests at the interface between our inner space, our “I am-ness,” and the outer space or physical effectual world.
