Joy of Sox Previous Broadcasts

Weird Science and the Power of Intention (Episode null)

KQED Plus: Wed, Jun 26, 2013 -- 5:00 AM

People everywhere are moved by the power of groups, whether it's at a concert, in a congregation or at a political rally. The new science of consciousness research has proven that invisible energies are the key to this power, and the pre-eminent laboratory for studying these forces is an unexpected location: at the ballpark.
In this program Harvard psychiatrist and energy medicine practitioner Rick Leskowitz describes how his lifelong love of the Boston Red Sox helped him discover that the principles of energy medicine and intentionality research explain the intangibles in sports: the home field advantage, the electricity in the crowd, team chemistry and the prayers of fans. Viewers will discover that computer studies have measured fan energy at Fenway Park, watch live lab tests (with Dr. L. as the guinea pig) that prove how positive emotions are contagious, and learn how energetically savvy fans can enhance their team's performance by using enthusiasm and appreciation to get their team into The Zone. This program even answers the age-old question: is your favorite sports stadium a sacred space? Find out by using software from Princeton that can detect "the vibe".
The Joy of Sox builds a foundation of scientific evidence in support of these mysterious forces by interviewing Hall of Fame scientists and researchers like Larry Dossey, William Tiller, Dean Radin, Donna Eden, Esther Hicks and Michael Murphy. Ballplayers like David Ortiz and Bill "Spaceman" Lee talk about their experience when immersed in powerful energy fields, both positive and negative. And fans describe their own ways of harnessing the power of intention.This film is a Trojan Horse - it brings esoteric research into the social mainstream while camouflaged as a story about popular sports. But by uncovering the New Science concepts that underly the familiar events of baseball, The Joy of Sox works its transformative magic on our teams, ourselves and our society.
