There are many experiences we don't remember, especially from our early childhood. But around age five, we undergo a transition wherein we become aware of ourselves, of our memories, and of the passage of time and our own mortality. This moment is what Presles calls the "leap of consciousness," and it is what defines us as humans.
The Power of Consciousness shows us how we can use this awareness to better ourselves and provides us with the tools to figure out who we are, and who we can become. Renowned psychologist Philippe Presles explains how to use the power of our consciousness to build our identity, make decisions, and achieve our goals. Using both psychological research and interviews with soldiers, survivors of near death experiences, and high-level athletes who have lived through the most extreme situations, Presles shows us that the ability to master our consciousness, and thus improve our lives, lies within each of us. This thoughtful and accessible guide to self-discovery and personal development provides an invaluable path to a happier and healthier existence.
