Dr. David R. Hawkins

Dr. David R. Hawkins is a nationally renowned psychiatrist, physician, researcher and lecturer, as his listing in Who's Who in America amply attests.  He has been a guest of MacNeil/Lehrer, Barbara Walters and The Today Show.  His previous book, Orthomolecular Psychiatry, co-authored with Nobelist Linus Pauling, sold out completely.  By the end of 1995, word-of mouth sales of POWER vs. FORCE were increasing by ten per cent a week.

Power vs. Force

POWER vs. FORCE is the culmination of twenty years' research.  In it, David Hawkins conclusively proves the ability of kinesiological testing to distinguish truth or falsehood in any statement - an astonishing idea in itself, with far reaching implications for every aspect of human life.  He goes on to demonstrate the application of his method (explained dearly for the layman) in commerce, art, sport, etc.  Then he explains its spiritual application, as a path to enlightenment.

Beyond this, Dr. Hawkins demonstrates kinesiological calibration as a tool for assessing value and motive, revealing the hidden determinants of human behavior - and establishing a Map of Consciousness that illuminates the spiritual ladder we must follow as a race and as individuals.

The volume concludes with compendious notes and bibliography, and, finally, a fascinating narrative of the author's own journey from atheism to spiritual enlightenment.

From the Author:  "All human endeavor has the common goal of understanding or influencing human experience.  To this end, man has developed numerous descriptive and analytical disciplines: Morality, Philosophy, Psychology, and so on....Regardless what branch of inquiry one starts from - philosophy, political theory, theology-all avenues of investigation eventually converge at a common meeting point: the quest for an organized understanding of the nature of pure consciousness...  To explain that which is simple can be difficult indeed.  Much of this book is devoted to the process of making the simple obvious.  If we can understand even one simple thing in depth, we will have greatly expanded our capacity for comprehending the nature of the universe and life itself".  - David R. Hawkins, M.D. Ph.D.,  Sedona, Arizona, December 2001.
