Overview

DISENGAGE FROM ILLUSIONS – UNLEASH AND DELIVER MORE REALISTIC PERCEPTIONS OF YOUR WORLD

Humans are brainy, curious, and assertive. But, paradoxically, we are also anxious and massively conforming. We think we have choices, yet psychologists and sociologists provide compelling evidence that we are influenced by unseen forces we do not understand. From ubiquitous advertising to the direct lessons of parents and teachers, our behaviors and thought patterns are being manipulated from day one. Even subtle social cues like critical looks or remarks have an impact. Without a skeptical and perceptive sense of self, we are controlled by powerful, unexamined influences.

Beyond Illusions and Conformity Pressures: In Search of an Authentic Self explores the barriers to self-awareness. When we become more conscious of both the hard-wired and learned pressures, understanding and freedom begin to blossom. It is not easy to unlock the many doors to inner wisdom, but the result just may reveal a fresh new world!
