This book is about how to think about and `connect` with your inner-self, your soul and with the souls others around you.

About the Author

Ken Evans, has taught psychology and psychotherapy in universities for many years, and found both subjects lacking a sense of `soul`. Drawing on both academic and practical experience whilst working in the field of social care, he transforms his real-life experiences into a collection of inspirational mythical & poetical stories which have practical applications to life`s challenges. His approach in writing this book has been to concentrate on the every-day sense of being a person, and to discuss in ordinary language, our sense of self; whilst at the same time avoiding any particular denominational attachments. The author has worked in European counties and in South East Asia and speculates on cultural differences influencing close personal relationships. His experience of working with elderly `patients` suffering from age-related illnesses such as dementia, provided him with `rich insights` of the Human Condition and how we can live a `good-life`, even at the margins of society.
