Product description

Product Description

A mind-opening, game-changing dive into humanity's default operating system that was millions of years in the making, and what it means for our future.

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.
“…a passionate book!…there is something profound being said…This book is a challenge and an invitation.” – Jean Vanier, PhD, Founder of L’Arche

“Engaging, readable, brilliant, and, for those who chose to allow it, life altering. It is so
needed in this weary world!” – Holly Larocque, singer/entertainer

“This book is a very valuable addition to society’s knowledge as to how to confront and probe deeply into the machinations that unfold within the human mind so as to more effectively cope with the countless challenges of a modern society.”
– The Hon. R. Roy McMurtry, O.C., O. Ont., Q.C., L.S.M., Chancellor of York University (2011-2014); Chief Justice of Ontario (1994-2007)

Primal Mind, Primal Games is a highly original, intricate and deeply thoughtful systematized exploration of the human psyche and its behavioural manifestations, in both the personal and social realms. A challenging and invigorating read, it is theory with a practical dimension.
– Gabor Maté, MD, author, In The Realm of Hungry Ghosts: Close Encounters With Addiction
