The noted research psychiatrist and New York Times-bestselling author explores how Transcendental Meditation permanently alters your daily consciousness, resulting in greater productivity, emotional resilience, and aptitude for success.
Most of us believe that we live in only three states of consciousness: wakefulness, sleep, and dreaming. But there is so much more.
In Super Mind, clinical psychiatrist and bestselling author Norman E. Rosenthal, M.D., shows how the incredibly simple daily practice of Transcendental Meditation (TM) can permanently improve your state of mind during the routine hours of waking life--placing you into a super-mind state of consciousness where you consistently perform at peak aptitude.
In his most ambitious and practical book yet, Rosenthal shows how TM is more than a tool for destressing or for general wellness. It is a gateway to functioning physically, emotionally, and intellectually at levels we never knew we could attain. Written in Rosenthal's trademark style of restraint and intellectual carefulness, Super Mind explores how we can aspire to so much more than we ever thought possible.

Dr. Rosenthal presents a thought provoking and stunning insight into the remarkable frontier of consciousness through human stories, scientific research and ancient wisdom. You feel as though he is sitting next to you and talking to you. A delightful, creative and witty attempt to truly bring the neurophysiology of enlightenment to all in a simple and natural way. Transcendental Meditation may sound too good to be true but this book explains how it is a lifetime program and everyone can look forward to developing their own Super Mind. If you have ever done TM in the past, are currently doing it or want to do it this book is for you! In terms of the development of consciousness you will realize anything is truly possible.
"Super Mind" is an important book everyone must read if you want to know how to develop your total potential--how you can accomplish easily and be happier. If you don't practice TM yet, this book will explain why you should. If you already practice TM and want to know why you should never miss a session, "Super Mind" is a must read.
I enjoyed "Super Mind" very much. As a long time practitioner of TM, it was satisfying to recognize the changes that have occurred from regular practice. Life is easy. I have stability in turbulence situations. My actions are fulfilling and responsibilities are smooth. I operate with a deep satisfaction throughout the day.
Dr. Rosenthal explains in a systematic, scientific, and thoughtful way how TM develops these qualities of "super mind" and more. He uses scientific data and personal accounts to illustrate our total mental potential, the powerful benefits of developing this mental potential, and how...
As a fan of Norman Rosenthal, I was eagerly looking forward to this new work. His previous book about meditation, "Transcendence," was pretty darn good, though as a long-time meditator I found “Transcendence" more suitable as an introduction -- a wonderful gift for people first getting acquainted with meditation (or TM) and the research behind it.
Super Mind goes much further, and deeper into the experience of TM and the growth that results outside of meditation over time through regular, twice-daily practice. It's a good sign of the times that a scientist and researcher of Rosenthal's caliber (he's a former 20-year senior researcher at the NIH) is seriously addressing "higher states of consciousness" and possibilities for human development beyond waking, dreaming and sleeping.
While neuroscientists and philosophers currently grapple with such basic questions as, Does consciousness really exist? Is consciousness merely the physical...
