What if imagination and art are not, as many of us might think, the frosting on life but the fountainhead of human experience?

A renowned therapist and inspiring guide, Dr. May draws on his experience to show how we can break out of old patterns in our lives. His insightful book offers us a way through our fears into a fully realized self.
