We are so happy to announce the publication of Mary Hoy Schmidt's new book, The Generous Universe!

This is the first book in the UNWRAPPING REALITY series, and it has already garnered some wonderful reviews. This book will take you to the place where science and spirit meet, an awe-inspiring place from which we can create lives of great joy and fulfillment.

“The Generous Universe is a remarkably deep dive into the scientific understanding of reality. This first book in Mary Hoy Schmidt's Unwrapping Reality series is a well-written, accurate, and generously broad survey that will appeal to anyone seeking to better understand our role in the universe, our potentials, and beyond.”

Dean Radin, PhD, Chief Scientist, Institute of Noetic Sciences, Distinguished Professor, California Institute of Integral Studies, and Author of several books, including Entangled Minds and Real Magic
