Who Do You Think You Are?: The Healing Power of Your Sacred Self

Front Cover
Bantam Books, 1998 - Religion - 246 pages
In today's society, it is all too easy to believe that we are our outer identities - that we are spouse or lover, child or parent, worker or artist, victim or addict. But now Dr. Warter, drawing on the age-old wisdom of the world's major religions, his own illuminating life experiences, and his consultations with the Dalai Lama and other great spiritual leaders, shows that in order to heal, to become whole, to become ourselves, we must go beyond the small, self-constructed circles of identity that we assume each day. For it is our very attachment to these false, limiting personalities that leads to chronic stress and disease ... while keeping us from recognizing our greatest treasure: our sacred selves. In Who do You Think You Are? Dr. Warter offers the tools - from Buddhist prayers to original meditations - that can help us reconnect with our authentic selves. And he presents the other profound precepts of his new model of healing.
