Your Sacred Self: Making the Decision to Be Free: An Original Manuscript

Wayne W. Dyer, Author HarperCollins Publishers $22 (342p) ISBN 978-0-06-017786-7
Every problem, Dyer asserts, has a solution in the ``sacred self.'' Our sacred, or spiritual, selves, he explains, represent our true natures. But we lose touch with the sacred self through the interference of ego, which produces anxieties and leads us to feel frustration, strife and pain and to inflict these on others. Here Dyer (Your Erroneous Zones) offers strategies for freeing oneself from the tyranny of ego and getting back in touch with the sacred self. He suggests that it is only through this reformation of individual consciousness that global problems such as war and poverty can be overcome. Peppered with inspirational quotes from sources as diverse as Emily Dickinson and Janis Joplin, his manual is noteworthy for its encouragement of tolerance and self-acceptance. But his reliance on New Age rhetoric will probably leave skeptical readers unconvinced. Author tour. (Apr.)
