Threatened by the new Omicron COVID variant and enveloped in an ever-darkening national political climate, U.S. citizens are desperate for creative solutions. Perlmutter’s book teaches us how to tap into our inner wisdom as we make everyday choices, small and large. He elaborates: “Thinking, by itself, is not enough. You also need your Conscience to provide unerring wisdom. The Conscience gives us the confidence to know what’s to be done and what’s not to be done, no matter what challenge we face. But, our ignorance of the power of the Conscience blinds us and leads to suffering—our own and society’s at large.”

This timely book offers chapters on how the mind works in clear, kind and simple language in addition to practical instruction on do-it-yourself experiments that invite readers to prove––in their own everyday lives––the transformational power of Perlmutter’s approach to re-educating ourselves and, by extension, re-imagining our culture.

YOUR CONSCIENCE has been endorsed by Tara Brach, Dean Ornish MD, Bernie Siegel MD, and others. It includes information on the Law of Karma (every action leads to a consequence,) the power of attention, the four functions of the mind: Conscience, Ego, Senses/Logic, and Unconscious Mind (and how to quell their “sibling” rivalries to hear the quiet, brilliant voice of the Conscience,) the Bridge of Yoga (basing one’s outer actions on inner wisdom through reliance on the Conscience,) and Ahimsa, the highest principle of yoga – non-violence, non-harming, non-injury.
