The Akasha Paradigm
by Ervin Laszlo (Author)
The bestselling author or SCIENCE AND THE ASKASHIC FIELD now presents the definitive theory of the Akasha Paradigm-a bold new perspective, emerging from findings at the cutting edge of physics. Rather than view the things we experience as real and the space that embeds them as empty and passive, in the Akasha concept it is the space that is real, while the things embedded in that space are secondary. Essentially, a unity paradigm, Akasha embraces, and then transcends, the old paradigms of religion as well as the paradigms of modern science providing insights into values like harmony and truth, and life-sustaining implications for humankind.
THE AKASHA PARADIGM IN SCIENCE includes contributions from Peter Jakubowski, László Gazdag, Paul A. LaViolette, David W. Thomson III and James D. Bourassa.

The winner of the 2017 Luxembourg Peace Prize, he lives in Tuscany. In 2019, Ervin Laszlo was cited as one of the “100 Most Spiritually Influential Living People in the World” according to Watkins Mind Body Spirit magazine.
“The Akasha is the fundamental building block of an evolving, maturing mind. Understanding it opens the way to a higher morality and a higher consciousness.”
“The Akasha paradigm as set forth by Ervin Laszlo tells us that life exists within a pattern that is coherent beyond our wildest dreams. Living systems seek harmony throughout their evolutionary journey. This insight uplifts our spirit and imbues our life with new meaning.”
Author, Researcher and Futurist
“In this brilliant book, Ervin Laszlo tells a story for the 21st century, a narrative inspired by a much earlier story from ancient India, the Akashic Records, perhaps the first “theory of everything…in his remarkable update of Bruno, Copernicus, Galileo, Darwin, Einstein and others, Ervin Laszlo, heeding Plato’s warning, that even the best account of the nature of reality is but a likely story, has now good reason to tell us, ‘the Akasha paradigm is the likeliest story we can tell today.”
The enterprise of science, as a disciplined inquiry into the nature and workings of the world, is coming to affirm many of the intuitively sensed and viscerally known insights long held by various wisdom traditions of spirituality.
By Ignacio Pavez, Lori D. Kendall, Chris Laszlo. The increasingly visible effects of climate change, the degradation of ecological systems, growing income inequality, and high levels of stress and disengagement in the workplace have dramatically increased corporate awareness of the need for integrating sustainability into business strategy. However, the focus of this awareness has largely emphasized finding ways to reduce the firm’s harmful impact from “bad” to “less bad” (e.g., when a company cuts its CO2 emissions by 50%). While this helps firms be less unsustainable, it diverts their focus from creating a more flourishing world, a place where people everywhere live in healthy communities, prosper, and can live life to the fullest. We propose that it is time for leaders to shift their thinking, and for companies to refocus their efforts, from reducing harm to making a positive impact, which we define as increasing economic prosperity while contributing to a healthy regenerative natural environment and improving human well-being.
Reconnecting to the Source is a powerful new book on the science of spiritual experience by Dr. Ervin Laszlo. A well-known figure in the fields of new science, consciousness, and spirituality, Dr. Laszlo has inspired some of today’s most important figures in science and philosophy. In Reconnecting to the Source he unpacks the science behind spiritual experience, investigating the ways in which we can access realms of experience beyond the everyday. It is in these moments, when our conscious minds are in contact or perhaps even overridden by our unconscious selves, that we can explore the depths of spiritual meaning.
