InPresence 101Religion and Spirituality

jeffrey mishlove


InPresence host, Jeffrey Mishlove, PhD, is author of The Roots of Consciousness, Psi Development Systems, and The PK Man. Between 1986 and 2002 he hosted and co-produced the original Thinking Allowed public television series. He is the recipient of the only doctoral diploma in “parapsychology” ever awarded by an accredited university (University of California, Berkeley, 1980). For many years he served as president of the non-profit Intuition Network, an organization dedicated to creating a world in which all people were supported and encouraged in developing inner intuitive abilities.

Here he refers to his personal experience within the Jewish religion — noting that prayers, blessings, and rituals are common to virtually all religions. However, when these rituals become repetitious after many days, weeks, months, and years — they begin to take on a mechanical quality. In Hebrew, the term for what is lost is “kavanah”, which means a focus on the inner meaning of the words. Jeff then reflects on the central role of psi in authentic spirituality.
