A provocative reflection on the way our notion of time affects the rhythms of our lives and even the rhythms of our bodies and, quite palpably, our health. Borrowing a note from Fritjof Capra (The Tao of Physics), Dossey takes a wide view of our psycho-physical connectedness to the energies of the universe and to other creatures, and invites us to consider the ways in which it can be demonstrated that imagination or thought affects physical experience.
