From the publisher:
Who are you? When you start to explore this question, you find out how elusive it really is. Are you a physical body? A collection of experiences and memories? A partner to relationships? Each time you consider these aspects of yourself, you realize that there is much more to you than any of these can define. In The Untethered Soul--now a New York Times bestseller--spiritual teacher Michael Singer explores the question of who we are and arrives at the conclusion that our identity is to be found in our consciousness, the fact of our ability to observe ourselves, and the world around us. By tapping into traditions of meditation and mindfulness, Singer shows how the development of consciousness can enable us all to dwell in the present moment and let go of painful thoughts and memories that keep us from achieving happiness and self-realization.

We had a lively discussion about this book. Most of us enjoyed it. It is a lot of what I'm doing in therapy--being open to the possibilities, taking chances, stepping outside my box. Our biggest complaint with it was that Michael Singer makes everything sound so easy. But we wanted more of the how--the application of what he's talking about.
