Biographical Information

"For nearly half a century, Joseph Chilton Pearce has been probing the mysteries of the human mind. Author of The Crack in the Cosmic Egg, Exploring the Crack in the Cosmic Egg, Magical Child, Magical Child Matures, Bond of Power, and Evolution's End, one of his overriding passions remains the study of what he calls the "unfolding" of intelligence in children. ...

"World-renowned thinker, author, and advocate of evolutionary child-rearing practices, Pearce has expertise that spans a broad range of disciplines: psychology, anthropology, biology, and physics. He has been a seminal figure in the study of human consciousness and child development for over a quarter century. His greatest publishing success was the national bestseller, Magical Child, in which he delineated an exhaustive and visionary approach to child rearing, especially focused on support for the "nonviolent" birthing approach revived by LeBoyer, Lamaze, and Odent, and popularized by Sondra Ray. He has since written three other books, most recently, Evolution's End, referring to the inherent potential which he claims lies dormant within all human beings. For over thirty years Pearce has written and lectured internationally on human development and the changing needs of children. He has recently completed The Biology of Transcendence, which explores the biological foundation for what we think of as "spiritual" development. He also coauthored Magical Parent, Magical Child: The Art of Joyful Parenting with Michael Mendizza.

"He was a faculty member on child development at the Jung Institute in Switzerland. More recently, he has become a certified HeartMath trainer, further developing his already extensive insights into the heart-brain connection. This connection between the heart and brain is not merely neurological and autonomic, or romantic and metaphoric—it is central to our full development and total health. He is also a member of the Scientific Advisory Board of the Institute of HeartMath, and a faculty member at the Omega Institute."[1]
