| Gail Harris, Creator / Executive Producer, The PBS Series, Body & Soul:
"For those of us who suspect there's more magic and mystery to life than what's immediately apparent, The Joy of Sox offers a thought-provoking as well as humorous glimpse into the role of fan obsession in sports success. The accompanying scientific evidence only confirms what Red Sox fans - including me - have always believed: our passion matters."
|Trisha Meili, Author,
I Am the Central Park Jogger:
"The Joy of Sox
explores a phenomenon so special to me: I have always
felt that the prayers, intentions and support of my family,
friends and strangers from around the world were essential
in my recovery, helping me to do more than anyone, doctors
included, ever thought possible. It is not hard to imagine
that, given the passion of the Red Sox fans, prayers might
help them too!"
|Joan Borysenko, Ph.D, Author, Minding the Body,
Mending the Mind and Inner Peace for Busy People:
"I may have moved from historic Boston to the wilds of
Colorado, but I still cheer for the Red Sox. If distant
intentionality affects the outcome of their games positively,
so much the better. Stay tuned to this website for the
latest scientific breakthroughs. What a fun way to combine
science and spirit!"

and Author of Golf in the Kingdom and In The Zone: Transcendent

Path, Spiritual Dimension of Healing, and Professor, Saybrook
Graduate School Fellow, American Psychologic Association:
"I am pleased to hear about this innovative project. I
have a hunch that these phenomena occur more than most
people suspect. I am delighted that someone is taking
a serious look at them."
|Cynthia Close, Director, Documentary Educational
“The issue of the intersection of science and belief,
the influence of Eastern metaphysics on Western science
is of great interest to many people both inside and outside
the practice of medicine. Using a seemingly humorous approach
gives you an opportunity to reveal subtle and perhaps
profound insights to the largest number of people. This
is a story that we believe will get the attention of a
nation wide audience."
|C. Norman Shealy,
MD, Ph.D., President, Holos University, Graduate Seminary,
and Founding President of the American Holistic Medical
“Intention is one of the most powerful forces in the world.
Hopefully, Sox fans will continue to focus their intent
