What People Are Saying

From the Publisher
"Lucidly written, Piero Ferrucci's What We May Be brings the enlightenment of psychosynthesis to the American people in a most compelling and delighting way. This is no cheap illusory fix.

—Marilyn Ferguson, author of The Aquarian Conspiracy

"A most illuminating and important book."
