Have you ever felt discontentment or unease about how we live within our current world? If you have, this book is for you. It will make you think! Here is an honest and open exploration of how our current cultural context has blinded us and prevented us from remembering what it means to be genuinely human. This is a guide book for reconnecting with the elements of our essential nature.
