A New Book by Gary E. Schwartz, Ph.D

January 2011

Welcome to the world of science and spirit...

Do spirits exist, and if so, can they play a useful if not essential role in our individual and collective lives? Are there sources of invisible information and guidance waiting to be tapped and harnessed if we are just willing to listen?
If we, in our essence, are spirits too, can we come to see this possibility when we look at ourselves in the mirror? And can we draw on this great inner potential and power with wisdom and love to change our ways accordingly, before it is too late for humankind?

I believe that science not only can address such questions, but in the process can potentially help increase our ability to receive spiritual information accurately, and we can then act upon it safely and wisely.

Praise for the work

"Gary Schwartz has been on a remarkable journey throughout his lifetime. His body of work is inspirational to me because his passion to bring science and spirit together is dominated by an empirical doctrine that is unimpeachable. His latest research as recounted in The SacredPromise is likely to impress even the most diehard skeptic. I am proud to recommend this book and to heap as much praise as possible upon my friend, Gary Schwartz.” —Kelsey Grammer

“Sacred Promise is elegant, rigorous, and groundbreaking—research science at its most innovative. Gary Schwartz’s exposition of ideas interfacing theory, paradigm, method, and anecdotes shows academia at its best.” —Dr. Lisa Miller, associate professor of psychology at Columbia University, editor of the Oxford University Press Handbook of Psychology and Spirituality, and cohost of the TV show Psychic Kids

“Gary Schwartz applies procedures of experimentation that no honest skeptic could argue with.” —Deepak Chopra, author of The Third Jesus and Life After Death

"Postmortem survival has long been a taboo topic in scientific circles. Gary Schwartz had ingenuity and a pioneering spirit to go deeply into this area and not be afraid of what he found. You’ll be fascinated by this book!” —Charles T. Tart, PhD, author of Altered States of Consciousness and The End of Materialism
“For more than two decades I have had the privilege of working with Gary Schwartz. He has amazed me not only with his insights and hard scientific approach, but also his willingness to explore and then share his findings on very controversial topics. Even if you do not believe in the premises of The Scared Promise, your intellect and heart will be teased enough so that you just might open your mind and start to believe that all this, and more, is possible.” --Jerry Cohen, CEO, Canyon Ranch

“This book is an absolute must-read for anyone who struggles with faith, love, death, and aspects of divinity.”—John Edward, author of Crossing Over and The Infinite Quest

Sally Rhine Feather to appear on "Twin Talk" on the World Talk Radio Network

Executive Director of the Rhine Research Center in Durham, North Carolina, Dr. Sally Rhine Feather, will guest on Twin Talk with Dr. Mercy on the World Talk Radio Variety channel at 8am PT on Friday, January 7, 2011.

Dr. Rhine Feather will discuss her life-long research into the paranormal and her involvement in the Rhine Center founded by her parents Joseph and Louisa Rhine in 1927 to pioneer the study of parapsychology. She co-authored The Gift: The Extraordinary Experiences of Ordinary People with Michael Schmicker in 2005 based upon research at the Rhine Center.

Joseph Rhine initially investigated the mind’s ability to gain psychic information by other than sensory means, known as extrasensory perception (ESP), and to perform psychokinesis (PK), the movement of objects by mental intention in cooperation with Duke University. The Journal of Parapsychology was founded in 1937 as an independent peer-reviewed professional journal to provide an outlet for reporting the findings from Duke and other laboratories at home and abroad. Now in the 21st century, the Rhine Center continues the mission and work of its founder J.B. Rhine with a broadened scope directed deeper into the Study of Consciousness.
Sally will discuss the history of the Rhine Center, research findings over 70 years, and the importance of twins in paranormal studies.

Twin Talk airs live on Fridays at 8 AM Pacific / 10 AM Central / 11 AM Eastern on the World Talk Radio Variety Channel. To access the show, log on at All shows will be available in Dr. Mercy's Content Library on the World Talk Radio Variety Channel for on-demand and podcast download.
