Joseph Chilton Pearce
Joseph Chilton Pearce is the author of many books, including Crack In The Cosmic Egg, a national best seller Magical Child, Evolution's End, The Biology of Transcendence, The Death of Religion and Rebirth of Spirit and most recently The Heart-Mind Matrix: How The Heart Can Teach The Mind News Ways To Think. For over thirty years Joe has written and lectured internationally on human development and the changing needs of children. Doing so Joe has pushed the boundaries of human development far beyond mechanistic models. His quest: to understand our ‘amazing capacities and self-inflicted limitations.’ We are the body and more. We are emotions and more. We are mind and more. Pearce weaves this miraculous tapestry into integrated wholeness.

He spoke on the new paradigm of human development at the seventh annual Transpersonal Psychology conference in India.
