This timely book offers chapters on how our minds work in clear, kind and simple language—information we did not learn in school. It explains how habits are formed and how they can be changed, reveals the hidden power of our attention, and outlines the vital role Your Conscience plays in all of these. This practical instruction also includes 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, our culture.

As new Delta COVID cases surge and students return to classes, Mr. Perlmutter writes in the September 2021 issue of “Transformation Journal” that most of us, no matter when we graduated from high school, were only educated to memorize and recite information, NOT how to tap into our inner wisdom as we make everyday choices, small and large. He elaborates: “The relentless onslaught of information from our mobile devices, cable outlets, emails, and social media feeds adds yet another layer of stress and anxiety we are not equipped to manage. At an alarming rate, bits of new data challenge our security and titillate the pleasure centers in our brains, driving us to make snap decisions that lead to fear, anger, disease and even death. As a result, we are ignorant of our own innate, brilliant human capacity to make the wise and kind decision in every circumstance. 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.”

YOUR CONSCIENCE can be adapted for students in middle school through advanced graduate degrees, as well as for adult education programs in community centers, cultural institutions, places of worship, and other educational venues. The book has been endorsed by Tara Brach, Dean Ornish MD, Bernie Siegel MD, and others.
