The Science and Philosophy of BodyTalk (2013)
by John Veltheim, DC SrCBI
"In his book, Dr. Veltheim's interpretation of his theories and discoveries are explained in greater detail; where he explores how he believes the BodyTalk System works from a practical, measurable and scientific perspective."
Here's a link where Dr. Veltheim defines his theory on the nature of consciousness and what is BodyTalk:
The Science Delusion (Science Set Free) (2014)
by Dr. Rupert Sheldrake, PhD
"Dr. Sheldrake has written over a dozen books on his field of research on morphogenetic fields, psychic phenomena and quantum entanglement. In his most recent work, The Science Delusion, Sheldrake questions some of the constants that modern science uses today."
This link for Dr. Sheldrake links to a short 15min TED talk on the Science Delusion, where Dr. Sheldrake explores 10 of the given "constant laws" of modern science:

The Reality of ESP: A Physicist's Proof of Psychic Abilities (2012)
by Dr. Russell Targ, PhD
"Dr. Targ became primarily well known for his research into remote viewing and psychic phenomena for the US Military during the 1970's, 80's and 90's and he remains, to this day, as one of the world leaders in psychic research. A number of different methodologies and projects have been tried by Dr. Targ, but, because of the subjective nature of the work, he has encountered some resistance in his acceptance by the mainstream scientific community, like many others of his faculty. As we begin to establish the basis of reference for the field of such study, Dr. Targ remains a vocal advocate of the existence of remote viewing work, which makes his pioneering research worth further investigation."
Below is a link to one of Dr. Targ's TED talks, 30-minutes in length:

...And this link is to a 90-minute conversation with Dr. Hancock about exploring "higher" consciousness, healing and life theory:
The Tao of Physics, 5th Edition (2010)
The Systems View of Life (2014)
by Dr. Fritjof Capra, PhD
"Dr. Capra has pointed out the merger between Western physics and Eastern mysticism since the 1970's; he has written 16 books on his theories and is on the faculty of Schumacher College, as well as being the founding director of the Center for Ecoliteracy in Berkley, California."
The following link is to an old interview from the 1980's with Dr. Capra on the Tao of Physics, which was first published in 1975:
...The Tao of Physics video link is outdated, this following link is to a 40-minute lecture by Dr. Capra from 2014, on the inter-related ecosystem of how nature sustains life and how our understanding of web of life is continuing to evolve:
The 4th Phase of Water (2015)
by Dr. Gerald Pollack, PhD
"In this publishing of his work, Dr. Pollack examines how water can take a gelatinous form that has the molecular composition of H3O2, a state in which water splits up its positive and negative charges; And when water does this it contains potential energy with implications to be discovered. The discoveries of Dr. Pollack may serve as a catalyst to pioneer our understanding the relationship between light and water in organic chemical and quantum biological reactions."
This link is to a fantastic 15-minute TED talk where Dr. Pollack lays out, in very simplistic and understandable terms, how water responds to light and can even hold a negative charge which can have profound benefits to our physical health:
Power vs Force (2007 Edition)
by Sir David Hawkins, MD, PhD
"Dr. Hawkins is arguably the most qualified psychiatrist that it is possible to become; his ground-breaking six book Power vs Force series pioneers a frame of reference that explores the connection between kinesiology and consciousness, a framework that several faculties colleague with today."
The following link is a 25-minute appearance of Dr. Hawkins on the Oprah Winfrey satellite radio program:
Dr. Jaleel (Jim) Al-Khalili, PhD
"One of the world's leading presenters of the field of "Quantum Biology;" Dr. Al-Khalili's studies the frontier of human understanding where Quantum Mechanics and Organic Chemistry intersect to form Molecular Biology, providing a detailed quotable reference for everyone."
This link is to a 15min TED talk to provide us an introduction into Quantum Biology:
Twenty Cases Suggestive of Reincarnation (1966)
Where Reincarnation and Biology Intersect (1997)
by Dr. Ian Stevenson, PhD
"The late Dr. Stevenson worked at the University of Virgina School of Medicine right up until his death in 2007, where he was the founder and director of the university's Division of Perceptual Studies. Over his 40 year career, Dr. Stevenson investigated some 3,000 cases of inexplicable illnesses, phobias/philias, misplaced memories and physical traits that do not seem to be able to be explained from environmental response or genetic heredity of the individual. Dr. Stevenson postulated that a 3rd influencing factor, such as a soul transferal process, may transfer information from one body to the next, and he published some 16 books on his findings."
...Because Dr. Stevenson is now passed away, some of the video from his lectures are not of the best video quality, but his research continues to this day. The first link is to a 30-minute lecture:

The study investigated whether people with chronic pain conditions showed improvements in pain, emotional factors, and overall health measures following 8 weekly distance BodyTalk treatments using the on-line Patient Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS). The study evaluated 36 subjects, randomized into a treatment (N=19) and a control group (N=17) using a single-blinded design in Phase I, followed by a crossover Phase II where the control subjects were treated.
