Publisher's Summary

Discover how to tap in to your extraordinary human capacity for connection and healing using astonishing new findings about the miraculous power of group intention and its boomerang effect in this new book by the author of the international best sellers The Intention Experiment and The Field.

What we send out into the universe comes back to us magnified. Although the power of intention - the energy of positive thoughts - is widely accepted as an influential force in transforming lives, the exponential power of group intention has never been explored - until now.

In The Power of Eight, Lynne McTaggart, an expert on the science of spirituality, reveals her remarkable findings from 10 years of experiments about how group intention can heal our lives - and change the world for the better. When individuals in a group focus their intention together on a single target, a powerful collective dynamic emerges that can heal longstanding conditions, mend fractured relationships, lower violence, and even rekindle life purpose. But the greatest untold truth of all is that group intention has a mirror effect, not only affecting the recipient but also reflecting back on the senders.

Drawing on hundreds of case studies, the latest brain research, and dozens of McTaggart's own university studies, The Power of Eight provides solid evidence showing that there is such a thing as a collective consciousness. Now you can learn to use it and unleash the power you hold inside of you to heal your own life, with help from this riveting, highly accessible new book.

Recording quality is poor on this recording

The recording quality on this recording is very poor. it's very easy to tell where the reader stopped & continued again with different tone & inflection in the voice. I found that to be very distracting for me! The information is true to McTaggarts meticulous research however. I listen to audio books so much because of my commute. Looks like I'll have to by the physical copy of the book!

A brilliant meeting of science and spirituality

Lynne is a true scientist ringing research to the field of spiritual practice. This is amazing for those who like prayer circles and setting intention or manifestation. The true hidden gym that is revealed through her work is of immense important to the world

Another disapointment

Too many statistics recited -- it's almost as if it doesn't know what it wants to be, stories about the successful experiments or a quantitative report. Yes, it could be both - -but more artfully strung together.

And worse - I got curious and joined the online group run by the author and discovered that in order to "help" people in these experiments, they focused on the horrific details of their ailments instead of seeing the subject as a whole being with the intrinsic potential for total health and thriving... it's amazing to me that have any success.

I've known about Lynn McTaggart's work for a while and I respect what she's trying to accomplish.

I hope to discover that she turned that group over to someone else and will one day take it back and turn it around so that her book and her real-world actions as represented by this group are much better aligned

I'm returning the book unfinished

Unpleasant Narration

I signed up to be a part of a power of 8 group in my hometown and so I listened to the book in preparation for our first gathering. The narration made it very difficult to get through this book. The narrator has a lovely fluid voice for most of a paragraph then will shift into a very harsh, grating voice that was almost unbearable. It was difficult to focus on the content because of the narrator's shifts in intonation.

5 paragraph book

Though I thoroughly enjoyed the book and actually practice what is offered in the book, this is mostly a documentation of all the experiments carried out by Ms McTaggart in her journey to discover the sweet spot of transmitting energy. She painstakingly tests and uses control groups to determine where or if there is a way to influence how and if energy is received. The subject matter is fascinating, profound and well worth the time, energy of listening but in truth distilling away all the experiments, anecdotes, the actual book could be contained in 5 paragraphs.

JARRING NARRATOR

I loved the book, but the voice of the narrator is a challenge. Quite pleasant and melodious in the upper range, it starts most every paragraph with a sudden drop into a lower pitch, where her voice is harsh and "growly". This creates quite a jarring effect and makes listening to the book rather challenging. I found myself in need of frequent breaks from her voice.
I'd seriously consider re-recording of this amazing book!

Before you purchase the audiobook...

There are offers of companion materials to those purchasing the paper back copy from amazon. Such as how to create a p.o.8 group etc. I would have gone for that deal if I knew that. It's a good book, but I'm left needing more of I'm going to apply it.

Empowering book about our Collective Powers

If you're interested in Manifestation, Law of Attraction and similar methods of working with Intention - you will be delighted to listen to this book. Not only it's well written and narrated, it has a lot of research and experiments to back it up. I'm looking to join a Power of Eight group in my town, but I've been a part of other, similar groups in the past and it changed my life for the better.
