Description

Building upon the foundation laid in The Breakout Heuristic (see page 15) Ernest Rossi boldly confronts the essential questions about what is it that makes us human:

  • What is consciousness?
  • How do we create consciousness?
  • How do we facilitate enlightened consciousness in our daily work?

Rossi first presents core neuroscience research detailing how novelty, enrichment, and the “wonder” of metacognition turns on activity-dependent gene expression and brain plasticity to grow a better brain—in everyday life as well as the arts, culture, humanities, and sciences. Next, experience actual case histories and scripts detailing how we create new consciousness with the 4-stage creative process in our daily work. This richly illustrated book is a brilliant extension of what it means to be a psychotherapist who creates new consciousness, with profound implications for understanding the struggles and positive possibilities of the human condition during war, work, peace, and enlightenment.
