An investigation into the physics of light and our journey toward healing, connection, and wholeness.

The reductionism and materialism of our modern world make it easy to imagine everything can be cleanly broken down into smaller and smaller parts. Yet the straightforward example of light in a hologram, which can't be reduced to its parts, points to an underlying interconnected reality--a wholeness. Physicist Sky Nelson-Isaacs uses numerous familiar examples--rainbows, music, photography--to illustrate a fundamental wholeness found in nature.

Just as light is filtered as it passes through a filmstrip, Nelson-Isaacs points out that our human experience is filtered through thoughts and feelings. This view provides an explanation as to why, in our daily lived reality, we can feel so broken and not-whole. Nelson-Isaacs weaves together cutting-edge ideas into the nature of space and time and original research, with a compelling message of urgency. The filters we use to make choices everyday hide important information from us, leading us away from experiences of flow. Through synchronicities, we are led to life lessons tailored to our readiness for change. Nelson-Isaacs reconsiders the view of time itself, suggesting that we live not just in this moment but on a timeline of history, part of a wave moving from our past into our future. Every choice we make shifts what is available to us. Can we learn to rethink our lives and reality to remove our filters and realize the wholeness that we have inherent in ourselves and in our world? Yes, says Nelson-Isaacs--and once we do that, we can use the multiverse of possibilities to make choices that help us heal and grow into a greater sense of ourselves.

Praise For Leap to Wholeness: How the World Is Programmed to Help Us Grow, Heal, and Adapt

"Sky Nelson-Isaacs has written a book that is not only profound but also urgent. Whether or not our human species survives on this planet largely depends on the degree to which we sense his key message about the intrinsic connections, unity, and the interdependence of all of life. Think of Leap to Wholeness as a survival manual for humans, because that is what it is."
—Larry Dossey, MD, author of One Mind: How Our Individual Consciousness Is Part of a Greater Mind and Why It Matters

"Sky takes us on a journey where science and spirit express the same reality—a reality that is always seeking to restore balance in its quest for wholeness. Deep scientific insights intertwine naturally with personal reflections and what might have seemed academic science becomes relevant to anyone on a conscious journey of self-exploration."
—Kimberly Carter Gamble, producer, director, and cowriter of globally-acclaimed Thrive I and Thrive II

“...a radiant quilt of science and spirituality with a keen awareness of social justice, a thread of sanity in a world facing some of the greatest challenges in human history, a shot of Mystery for all who seek.”
—Vera deChalambert, author of “Kali Takes America,” spiritual story teller, and scholar of comparative religion

“[Nelson-Isaacs] awakens our spirit by sharing his own insights and journey in a deep, authentic, and very personal way....For those of us that have always wondered if there are coincidences, Sky’s science-based blended with soulful approach answers this big question once and for all! Read on…there’s so much more inside…”
—Dana Look-Arimoto, Settle Smarter podcast, executive coach, speaker, and author

“With science, story, and vulnerable reflection, Leap to Wholeness provides a clear path to expanding into greatness through the magic of synchronicity and experiencing the curriculum of life with awe and wonder.”
—Rebecca Villarreal, author of The Amazing Adventures of Selma Calderón

“The bad news is that Leap to Wholeness is not light reading. The good news is that if you can focus 100 percent attention on Sky Nelson-Isaacs’s insights, even for a few minutes, you will reap rewards that will pay dividends for a lifetime. There is gold in every sentence and each time you read the book you gain new ideas that will help you become a more complete person who is in harmony with the world.”
—Dr. Michael Soon Lee, coauthor of Cross-Cultural Selling for Dummies

“Based on solid scientific foundations from quantum physics, Nelson-Isaacs takes readers on a path of a holistic cosmos and inner healing. Like our outer world, our inner world also seems to follow the multidimensional entangled histories of a holographic universe.”
—Marcin Nowakowski, PhD, Gdansk University of Technology

“Nelson-Isaacs is a musician, poet, and physicist, and he gets them all mixed up so that his physics reads like poetry, and his poetry reads like music....He gives us a rich understanding of the wholeness of our nurturing and human-friendly cosmic home.”
—Allan Combs, PhD, author of Consciousness Explained Better and The Radiance of Being

“…a great use of current scientific knowledge sprinkled with personal stories to help readers relate to that knowledge. This is a great contribution and a niche worth filling in the literature.”
—Wolfgang Baer, PhD, founder of Nascent Systems

“[Nelson-Isaacs] brings us to the intersection of science and mysticism, touching with sensitivity on human issues of concern like isolation and grief, race and privilege, opportunities and mistakes.”
—Dr. Clint G. Rogers, author of Ancient Secrets of a Master Healer

“Read Leap to Wholeness to experience a crack in your consciousness toward becoming more human.”
—Francesca McCartney, founder of Academy of Intuition Medicine, author of Body of Health

“In this book, I feel humanity’s yearning for a deeper encoded inner truth to guide us to a world that works interdependently, bringing out the best. Nelson-Isaacs doesn’t demand change—he wisely sets the process clearly in front of us, nudging us along or catching us in a wave of wonder as we contemplate a world that really does work.”
—Rev. Barbara Leger, author, speaker, and founder of TEMENOS Center for Spiritual Living

“...a fascinating and useful guide to transcending the limiting assumptions to which our contemporary mainstream culture locks us in, opening up the potential of human and social growth, integration and transformation....a science-based vision of reality in which consciousness and synchronicity play a key role, and which can then be applied to our lives in liberating and transformative ways."
—George Weissman, PhD, cofounder of the Fundamental Fyziks Group

“ this manual for more effective living, Nelson-Isaacs helps facilitate healing as he guides the reader to an awareness of not only their Wholeness but of the Wholeness of it All. A must-read for anyone looking for a deeper, more meaningful, and purposeful experience of life."
—Rev. Raymont L. Anderson, DD, PhD, MSCD, Senior Minister of the Center for Spiritual Living Greater Baltimore

“Nelson-Isaacs explores this very important subject with considerable scientific knowledge of synchronicity and physics and uses it to bring light to bear on universal concepts of emotional healing.”
—Philip Merry, PhD, author of 9 Keys of Synchronicity, CEO of Singapore’s Global Leadership Academy 

"Using abundant personal stories, [Nelson-Isaacs] demonstrates innovative ways that synchronicity can bring wholeness to life through choices you may have missed. Using familiar images, from rainbows to steps on a ladder, he helps you jump into the mysteries of physics with more clarity."
—David Strabala, LCSW, director of What Is Synchronicity?

"Leap to Wholeness presents a compelling and compassionate theory which illuminates how our filters of perception influence the experiences we have. What emerges is a new perspective that sees connectedness everywhere, as well as opportunities for significant change in every moment of our day."
—Rev. David Bruner, minister, CSL San Jose

"Building on the pioneering explorations described in Living in Flow, here we find a continuation of that exploration in a rich presentation of the holographic paradigm of wholeness."
