“My career is focused on creating community. The operable part of that word is unity. Today, cultivating an orientation to belonging and unity is our most precious north star. In his book Consciousness Is All There Is, Dr. Tony Nader doesn’t just talk about unity, he describes with impeccable logic the reality that unity is the ultimate nature of life and that we are all headed there as we evolve. Read this book. It will put you on a path to something extraordinary.”
RADHA AGRAWAL, co-founder and CEO of Daybreaker community and co-founder of Thinx

“Does the brain create consciousness, as is the predominant thinking of today? No! No! No! It’s the opposite. Consciousness creates the brain!!! And it’s consciousness which creates everything in manifestation. This book by Dr. Tony Nader tells the story of ‘CONSCIOUSNESS ALONE IS.’ This book thrilled me to my core. Page after page of the truth of how it all works. Is this book a must-read? You better believe it is!!!”
DAVID LYNCH, Academy Award-winning filmmaker and bestselling author of Catching the Big Fish: Meditation, Consciousness, and Creativity

“Through his understanding of modern science and ancient Vedic Science, Dr. Nader’s approach to consciousness has the potential to save the world from war and annihilation.”
MAYA SHAHANI, The Shahani Group

“In Consciousness Is All There Is, Dr. Nader advances a powerful thesis of Consciousness — the singularity at the heart of nature and the most intimate fact of our existence. He analyzes the implications of this thesis for a sweeping range of hard problems in philosophy and science. And he invites the reader to verify these insights in terms of their own experience. A tour de force delivered with insight, compassion, and wit. A must-read for anyone seeking inspiration and solutions to solve the world’s greatest challenges.”
HON. W. SCOTT GOULD, former deputy secretary, US Department of Veterans Affairs

“Our current trauma-focused therapies have been found wanting in addressing post-traumatic stress; the promotion of post-traumatic growth is the most promising way forward. Dr. Nader pulls together philosophy and quantum physics, good and evil, psychology and physiology in ways that make clear the understanding of humans as transcendent creatures who can identify themselves with the ultimate reality, far beyond guilt, shame, and irreconcilable inner conflicts. Socrates asserted that a truly happy person was just and harmonious on the inside, and Dr. Nader explores how any individual can align his or her self with universal truths and live in righteousness and health. Dr. Nader’s book holds the deepest insights into the potential that life can hold.”
COLONEL BRIAN REES, MD, MPH, USAR (ret.), author of Heal Yourself, Heal Your World

Consciousness Is All There Is could not have come at a better time. Dr. Nader is brilliant in bringing simplicity to what most of us find complicated. This book will empower you to respond in a healthier way to whatever life circumstances you are facing. This book is a must-read for every member of the family.”
DR. FABRIZIO MANCINI, author of The Power of Self-Healing

Consciousness Is All There Is dives deep into how we can make life work for everyone. Dr. Nader not only provides a clear, logical description of the ultimate structure of life, he provides the keys to resolve any problem you may be facing. In this time of turmoil and separation, this book is a lighthouse for anyone to find their way home.”
JANET BRAY ATTWOOD, New York Times bestselling co-author of The Passion Test

“As the successor to Transcendental Meditation founder Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Dr. Nader is uniquely qualified to elucidate the path to enlightenment as something real and natural, and he does so on the basis of neurophysiological refinement that utilizes the existing mechanics of human physiology. Enlightenment represents the full development of the most valuable qualities of human life. Dr. Nader combines the specialized training of a neuroscientist with his deep understanding and experience of the development of consciousness and enlightenment.”
ROBERT KEITH WALLACE, PhD, pioneering meditation researcher, coauthor of The
Coherence Effect
and author of The Neurophysiology of Enlightenment

“As scientific discoveries have accelerated exponentially, a true understanding of consciousness has eluded scientific explanation and practical application. It took a scientist accomplished in the subjective approach of ancient Vedic Science and the objective approach of modern science to provide a comprehensive explanation of consciousness.
“Dr. Nader’s new book, Consciousness Is All There Is, integrates scientific understanding with a practical, personal, intimate experience in one coherent ‘theory of everything.’ His compelling investigation and exposition of the theory that ‘Consciousness is all there is’ satisfies both the passionate heart of the spiritual seeker and the discriminating intellect of the scientist.
“This book presents the breakthrough of the 21st century. Read it. Contemplate its wisdom. Dive within to experience its reality firsthand.”
NANCY LONSDORF, MD, bestselling author of The Healthy Brain Solution For Women Over Forty and The Ageless Woman

“In our quest to understand the true reality of life as encapsulated by ideas, feelings, things, and actions, we keep returning to the fundamental question of consciousness itself. Dr. Nader takes us on a journey in which he explores not only our concepts and beliefs regarding consciousness, but the very possibility of whether consciousness exists separately from any material origin. Asking these questions and exploring their implications profoundly stimulates our thinking as we explore our scientific, philosophical, and spiritual beliefs.”
GREGORY GRUENER, MD, MBA, MHPE, FANA, vice dean for education, Stritch School of Medicine, Loyola University Chicago

“Consciousness is one of the major scientific problems of our age. Mathematics is at the foundation of modern science and technology, and mathematics is a product of human consciousness. An enduring and much commented upon mystery is how this product of consciousness can have such ‘unreasonable effectiveness’ in describing the physical world. Solving this mystery is a vital scientific quest with significant practical consequences.
“Dr. Nader’s new book is a major contribution to this quest. Its elegant and well-argued position is, simply put, that Consciousness should be accepted as an a priori entity with matter as product. The mystery of ‘unreasonable effectiveness’ is solved in one logical stroke. Dr. Nader’s book will be enjoyed by all those interested in scientific and spiritual truth.”
PHILIP BOYLAND, PhD, professor of mathematics, University of Florida

“This book creates a pathway to understanding one’s inner self. Dr. Tony Nader has done a superb job in explaining that the origin of matter is in consciousness. Through his extensive review and synthesis of ancient spiritual and modern scientific writings, he masterfully explains how consciousness is fundamental. He also demonstrates that greater knowledge of consciousness gives us the tools to create coherence in society and achieve personal happiness and world peace. This process blends ancient Vedic knowledge and modern science to create a better world.”
SATINDER SWAROOP, MD, FACP, FACC, clinical professor, University of California Irvine School of Medicine, and past president of the Orange County Medical Association

“Tony Nader’s new book is a major contribution toward solving the ‘hard problem’ of consciousness: understanding the nature of consciousness and its relationship to the physical. Having provided a model that presents consciousness as the most primordial field, Dr. Nader then shows how the model potentially solves enduring problems in various disciplines, including quantum field theory and the psychology of higher states of consciousness. The potential explanatory power of Dr. Nader’s monistic field theory of consciousness holds the promise of enormous strides in our understanding of nature.”
ALAN MADRY, JD, MA, emeritus professor of law, Marquette University Law School

“Together with Dr. Frederick Travis, I have investigated world-class performers and compared them to average performers in sports, management, and classical music. We have measured moral reasoning, the frequency of peak experiences, and how coherent, restfully alert, and efficient the brain was — glimpses of higher consciousness. To explain our findings and the fundamentals of high performance, we needed an underlying, all-pervasive field of consciousness. The model of consciousness so beautifully presented in Dr. Nader’s groundbreaking book offers the only satisfactory explanation of the research data.”
HARALD S. HARUNG, PhD, Oslo Metropolitan University, co-author of Excellence through Mind–Brain Development: The Secrets of World-Class Performers

“Research into brain and consciousness has stalled due to the explanatory gap: How does electrochemical activity in the brain generate conscious experience? Dr. Tony Nader outlines a new model of consciousness in his book Consciousness Is All There Is. He discusses the ‘hard solution’ — how a field of consciousness generates the physical world — and correlates his model to quantum field theories and mathematics. Dr. Nader’s monistic field theory of consciousness is a model for the 21st century. It has the potential to guide brain and consciousness research for the next hundred years or longer.”
FREDERICK TRAVIS, PhD, professor and director of the Center for Brain, Consciousness, and Cognition, Maharishi International University, and author of Your Brain Is a River, Not a Rock

“Modern concepts of consciousness and its origin are at best muddled. Scientists and philosophers have talked around the issue for years without a clear consensus. Dr. Tony Nader brings a fresh voice to this field and a welcome and understandable explanation of the nature of consciousness, both from a modern scientific and an ancient Vedic perspective. He presents the cogent argument that the unified field as defined by quantum field theory and the basis of human thought are in fact one and the same, a field of pure Being. He takes us step by step to an understanding that Consciousness is all that there is. This is a book for our time, and for the ages.”
GARY P. KAPLAN, MD, PhD, neurologist and educator, clinical associate professor of neurology (ret.), Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra University

“We see in the world today a hunger for knowledge of consciousness. Dr. Tony Nader’s new book, Consciousness Is All There Is, presents a discussion of consciousness so profound, written in such simple and engaging language, that it has the potential to inspire implementation of practical, transformative Consciousness-Based programs in education, health, rehabilitation, administration, the military — all areas of society.”
DAVID ORME-JOHNSON, PhD, pioneering researcher on meditation and higher states of consciousness

“In Consciousness Is All There Is, Dr. Tony Nader expands the frontiers of holistic health. He goes beyond conventional mind-body medicine to explore the role of consciousness as the basis of our mind, body, and the environment. Dr. Nader’s new ‘Consciousness paradigm’ is based on the latest advances in quantum physics and neurophysiology, integrated with discoveries of ancient Vedic Science. This truly groundbreaking book opens a new world of possibilities for readers seeking inner peace, meaning, purpose, and mental and physical health. As an integrative physician scientist, I highly recommend Consciousness Is All There Is to everyone.”
— ROBERT SCHNEIDER, MD, FACC, director of the NIH-funded Institute for Prevention Research and dean of the College of Integrative Medicine at Maharishi International University

“Dr. Nader is a unique example of East meets West — he is as adept at interpreting key phrases from the Upanishads as he is in explaining the relationship between classical physics and quantum mechanics. His discussion of the insights of great scientists such as Albert Einstein and Erwin Schrödinger is lucid and resonant. Most importantly, Dr. Nader’s book offers a practical path to translate the conclusions of his analysis into tangible benefits at the individual and societal levels. Anyone seriously interested in exploring the fundamental questions of existence will not want to miss this book.”
JOHN LASS, MBA, president, Lass Advisory Services, LLC, formerly with Boston Consulting Group and Hagberg Consulting Group

“It’s not often that a book can provoke me to think deeply and, as a result, change my life in a significant way. Dr. Nader’s book, Consciousness Is All There Is, did just that. By combining insights from fields as diverse as cosmology, physics, psychology, religious studies, and philosophy, Dr. Nader managed to weave together explanations that provided answers to a lot of open questions about how the physical and the spiritual world could ever come together in one authoritative, scientific narrative. I’ve started to see my life in a new light and feel much calmer about facing the future.”
