Christian De Quincey
A user-friendly, step-by-step guide to understanding the mind
• Presents a practical journey into understanding consciousness--philosophy’s hardest problem, science’s final frontier, and spirituality’s deepest mystery
• Offers 7 steps to transform your life using the shadow and the light of consciousness
Consciousness from Zombies to Angels presents a practical, step-by-step “owner’s guide” for 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. Christian de Quincey 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.
All of us exhibit both 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. De Quincey reveals that the way to transformation is to accept ourselves exactly as we are--a work in progress.
Readers will learn the difference between “energy talk” and “consciousness talk”; how the body affects the mind, and vice versa; and where to go for help to develop consciousness, heal emotions, or grow spiritually. De Quincey shows 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.
(Harville Hendrix, author of Getting the Love You Want: A Guide for Couples)“This is the guide to consciousness that millions have been waiting for. In clear, nontechnical language, Christian de Quincey guides us through the labyrinth of the mind. This is one of the best books on consciousness to emerge in years.”
(Larry Dossey, M.D., author of Healing Words and The Power of Premonitions)
“It’s a rare book that pushes the frontiers of science, philosophy, and spirituality all at the same time. Christian de Quincey has done just that. With an inviting mix of deep insight, compassion, and humor, he shows us how our inner light shines with a brilliance only when we embrace all of who we are, including our darkest shadows.”
