In a culture where results, haste and mass production are valued, where is the person left? During our growth, we absorb infinity of information and orders that are shaping our personalities, offering a panorama full of squares: from school to performance awards, the career we study and what we offer to society and those we love, but are we being really authentic? Each daily event seems to show conditioning trends: with long hours of work and parenting that are far from ideal, the concept of «genuine and true» seems to be put aside, to make room for habits that reject everything that is born from something deeper . and, above all, sharply censors the question who am I? Thus, society, which defines the concept of «normality», deploys an arsenal of therapies that influence our self-perception with the idea that «someone else helps us understand ourselves». Could we do that work ourselves? This book, based entirely on an experience of personal discovery and research carried out for more than three years, addresses this question, recounting the long path of self-knowledge and the obstacles imposed by the capitalist commercial system, which subtly keeps us away. of ourselves, conveniently making us forget our pristine longings. Surprisingly, we will discover that this lack of authenticity not only makes us feel more unhappy and enslaved, but also organically sicker. We will also know tools to discover who we are, by the hand of our instinct and other alternative tactics to the conventional, but always with a constant; only you can know who you are. This book is the first of the series of books, currently in preparation, called «Building happiness»

The extent, variety, and intractability of misogynist gender systems and the intersections between gender inequity and other forms of injustice expose tensions between the value of individuality and the disvalue of systematic social and economic subordination. The former presupposes a type of freedom that the latter aims to suppress. These essays develop an action theory that takes this contradiction into account—an action theory for feminists and other social dissidents.

With dozens of exercises, assessment tools and examples, Making a Difference by Being Yourself delivers a complete toolkit to take personal insight and awareness to the next level—to live life consciously and to use your strengths and talents in ways that make a meaningful difference at work and in your relationships.

Most people just want to be happy and to make a difference in the world. We’re often told we’ll achieve this by being ourselves. But when we begin to reflect, that’s not quite as simple as it sounds. All sorts of questions and countercultural notions arise. Maybe trying to ‘be yourself’ is not such a good idea after all? This book dares us to let go of some of the assumptions we make about life. Drawing on current research, contemporary events and ancient wisdom, it offers an invitation to journey to places we may never have imagined before. It vividly reveals how the revolution that Christianity began can still make remarkable sense of our experience of wonder, love, evil, justice, identity and freedom. ‘Intriguing and provocative, speaking to our deepest concerns and heaviest questions.’ James Mumford, author of Vexed: Ethics beyond political tribes ‘I kept saying “YES!” as I turned the pages of this book.’ Pete Greig,author of How to Pray
