About Amy Lansky

Even as a child growing up in the suburbs of Buffalo, New York, Amy sensed that the world was a bit more mysterious than it appeared to be on the surface…

After many years working as a computer scientist, she now pursues her life passion—to uncover deeper truths hidden behind the veil of our consensual reality.

Born in Buffalo, New York, Amy Lansky graduated from the University of Rochester in 1977 with degrees in mathematics and computer science, and she received her doctorate in computer science from Stanford University in 1983 (technically, conferred in January 1984). Lansky did research work in the field of artificial intelligence at Silicon Valley institutions SRI International and NASA Ames Research Center until she left the field in 1998 to pursue her interest in homeopathic medicine. This unusual move was prompted by the miraculous cure of her son’s autism with homeopathy. In 2003 she published her best-selling introduction to homeopathy, Impossible Cure: The Promise of Homeopathy

Amy is regarded internationally as an expert writer and speaker on homeopathy for general audiences. She has been featured at several conferences, is regularly interviewed on a variety of online forums, her articles have appeared in leading magazines, and she hosted a radio show on homeopathic treatment of autism on Autism One Radio from 2006–2009. Lansky is an avid advocate for health freedom. She was a board member of the California Health Freedom Coalition and testified before a California Senate hearing to help pass legislation that legalized the practice of unlicensed forms of medicine in that state.  She also served on the board of the National Center for Homeopathy from 2004–2011.

After the success of her book about homeopathy, Amy expanded her research explorations to include more esoteric subjects — meditation, psychic phenomena, synchronicity, and manifestation. Her second book Active Consciousness: Awakening The Power Within appeared in 2011. This led to her writing more extensively on these subjects. Her articles about consciousness, synchronicity, and spirituality have appeared in a number of forums, including RealitySandwich.com and AllThingsHealing.com, and she was featured in the film “Time Is Art”. The COVID years have now inspired Amy to begin writing commentary articles about society and the current challenging times we are all experiencing.

Lansky is currently finishing up her third book that combines her interest in our true human identity as both physical and spiritual beings, along with alternative forms of healing that address these parts of our complete Selves. Her intention is that this new book will serve as a general guidebook for those seeking healing outside the boundaries of conventional medicine.

Lansky now lives in Greenville, South Carolina with her husband Steve Rubin. They discovered this magic city after a one year-voyage around America to find their new “homeland” after departing California during the COVID years. Amy’s hobbies include piano, vocals (she was the lead singer of a rock band in Silicon Valley for several years), painting, and lap swimming. She also enjoys needlework and other crafts, gardening, travel, canoeing and kayaking.

The Breakthrough

Amy Lansky’s Journey into Homeopathy

Unlocking the Mind

Amy Lansky’s Exploration of Consciousness

In her second book, Active Consciousness: Awakening the Power Within, Lansky explores the mysterious realm of human consciousness. This wide-ranging book draws on her interest in paranormal phenomena and esoteric systems of thought like those of Gurdjieff and Steiner, her expertise in alternative medicine, her meditation studies, and even her research experience in artificial intelligence. It was named by a popular UK blogger as one of “5 Spiritual Books That Will Change Your Perspective of Reality”, alongside best-sellers The Power of Now and Conversations with God.
