The Self

A little more, I can't tell you how profound an impact this model has had and has on my life, my relationship to mySELF, my relationships with others, my ability to parent, etc.
All the esoteric branches of the world’s religions teach that there is an untarnished essence within each of us, a Self from which wisdom, healing, and spiritual energy flow. We rarely experience this Self directly because it is obscured by self-protective psychological mechanisms or lost in the fear, pain, and shame of past trauma.
