by Jalaja Bonheim, Ph.D. —

The book is based on Bonheim’s experience facilitating gatherings of female leaders, spiritual seekers and peacemakers worldwide, and it pinpoints the source of our conflicts and shows us how and why we keep sabotaging our own desires for peace.

The book answers the key questions: “Why have we failed to create the happy, peaceful world that we all want?” and “What can we do about it?”

Bonheim tackles one of the core myths of popular spiritual culture — the myth of the ego, supposedly responsible for our greed, selfishness and violence.

In contrast, she approaches the ego as a sacred function worthy of honor and gratitude.

With riveting stories from her work, she guides us into the depths of our collective psyche to pinpoint the real sources of our problems and illuminate our paths to wholeness.

Firmly grounded in a lifetime of practical experience, this is a visionary, uplifting book that explains why our world is in crisis and how we can support the unprecedented transformational process that is underway.
