With What Is This Thing Called I? Allen Carter takes on the daunting task of explaining how the mind actually works, what is really behind the nature of individual identity, and puts it all together in a way that explains the true nature of existence. I highly recommend this important book. Among many other things, it will forever illuminate the meaning of the word “I”.

If you are concerned, as I am, with pondering the spiritual nature of SELF, this book will help you enormously. My work draws on Dr. Carter’s main premise that we have misidentified our true nature and that we must now come back to the truth of who we are. This book helps us make that journey.

WHAT IS THIS THING CALLED I?
If you have ever wondered who you really are and what compels you to do the things you do, this workshop is for you. It offers a new way of looking at the mind and the laws that run us. Dr. Allen Carter, a clinical psychologist with more than 25 years as a private practitioner and college professor, shows us that our only problem is that we are misidentified. Because we usually don’t question the nature of our identity, we unknowingly live our lives following the rules of our conscious and unconscious minds. Dr. Carter gives us a clear view of how our minds function by obeying commandments dictated by the mental false gods he calls creator god, we-god and i-god.
Participants will see in this workshop that even though our experiences may be different, we are all apparent victims of these commandments, believing we are lacking something. The truth is we lack nothing. We will know this when we identify who we truly are. The workshop concludes by showing participants how to know who they really are, by taking them on a journey as they explore 10 Acceptances that take them out of the hell of their minds.
· Participants will discover the barriers and obstacles that prevent them from having success in all forms of relationships—romantic, professional and familial.
· Participants will discover how to become more powerful in solving problems in their lives.
· Participants will gain a deeper knowledge and experience of “The Spiritual”.
· With knowledge gained from the workshop, the participants will have the tools to identify the barriers that interfere with them fully experiencing and enjoying all that life has to offer.
