"For most of us, daily life proceeds as though every thought and feeling arising in our head or heart is the by-product of our freewill beckoned by our soul’s desire. But what if each of us, without conscious knowledge or consent, is, in reality, engaged in a far deeper and more complex bio-psycho-social game? One with origins stretching as far back as the dawn of life itself... And what if the many conflicts continuing to arise among humans – including war, and the wanton disregard for one another and our planet – were also by-products of this game? Would it not be in our interest to understand the rules governing it? Primal Process Theory offers a new lens that helps explain why we do what we do. In essence, it posits our use of three default mindsets – Fighting, Defeated and Appeasing. These comprise the basis of our Primal Mind, while their social interplay generate the Primal Games vortex. This book offers a way to extricate ourselves from its many traps, allowing us to lead saner, wiser and more fulfilling lives."--Page [4] of cover.
