Everyone blessed with shadow and light—aspects of ourselves we fear and deny (our inner “Zombies”) as well as qualities we admire and want to radiate (our inner “Angels”). The key to a creative and fulfilled life is to integrate both our shadow and light. Consciousness philosopher and teacher Christian de Quincey, Ph.D., reassures us that the way to transformation is by accepting ourselves exactly as we are—magnificent works in progress.

Here, he presents a practical, step-by-step “owner’s guide” to the mind that sorts out philosophy’s hardest problem, science’s final frontier, and spirituality’s deepest mystery—what consciousness is, how it works, and why it’s important. He presents seven simple steps for understanding consciousness and how it can lead to spiritual awareness: observe your language, identify the problem, learn how to look, recognize your patterns, know yourself, embrace your shadow, and practice transformation.

Readers will learn the difference between “energy talk” and “consciousness talk”; how your body affects your mind, and vice versa; and how to develop consciousness, heal emotions, and grow spiritually. Dr. de Quincey shows you how to recognize and break habits and patterns that run your life, how to find out who you really are, and why facing up to your darkest fears will liberate your brightest light as you learn to embrace all of your humanity and experience the power of transformation.
