Dr. David R. Hawkins

David R. Hawkins, M.D., Ph.D., is a well known spiritual teacher, author and consciousness researcher whose trilogy, Power vs Force, The Eye of the I, and I: Reality and Subjectivity, have won him wide acclaim.  He has been Knighted by the Danish Crown and nominated for the John Templeton Award.  His work is at the leading edge of consciousness research. The verification of spiritual realities includes the author's own major subjective realizations and transformation.

Prior background includes 50 years of work in psychiatry, publication of the ground breaking book Orthomolecular Psychiatry with Nobelist Linus Pauling, many awards, and presentations of lectures at the world's most prestigious institutions (Westminster Abbey, Notre Dame, Harvard, Oxford, UCLA, and University of Michigan to name a few).

Dr. Hawkins has been a consultant to the Zen Monasteries, Catholic and Protestant ministries, Unity, and other churches. His extensive background is detailed in Who's Who in America and he has been a guest of MacNeil/Lehrer, Barbara Walters and The Today Show. He is the founder of the Spiritual Pathway of Devotional Nonduality.  While Dr. Hawkins' presentations are described as "unique and awesome," they are also very characteristically humorous despite his formal title in the Far East as the "Foremost Teacher of Enlightenment" - Tae Ryoung Sun Kak Dosa.

Devotional Nonduality
The Direct Pathway to Enlightenment

"The Direct Pathway to Enlightenment is by transcending the ego/mind and renouncing the false identification with the linear obstacles to the radiance of God Immanent as Self. This is facilitated by understanding the basic characteristics of consciousness, the carrier wave that forms the substrate of awareness itself. By Grace, the unobstructed Illumination of the Divine Radiance shines forth effortlessly ."
       - Dr. David Hawkins


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.
