This is a book about self-knowledge and about the journey back to who we really are, behind the strategies of our egos. The starting point is that development of consciousness happens when we get to know our feelings, our ego and its strategies. The book is written for anyone who does, or wants to embark on, a psychological or spiritual journey for
themselves. It combines traditional theories with ancient wisdom and can, with advantage, be used as a handbook for personal development.
