--Joan Borysenko, Ph.D., author of Minding the Body, Mending the Mind

"Dr. Carlos Warter has had the courage not only to make the outer journey traveling the globe to acquire wisdom, but also to make the inner journey, traveling within to acquire an even greater understanding about the real world. His book offers the results of these journeys to you, and I highly recommend it."

From the Inside Flap

Do you know who you are?

Dr. Carlos Warter, the esteemed physician, psychotherapist, and healer whose charismatic lectures and workshops around the world have led untold thousands to rediscover their essential selves, now shares his prescription for achieving physical health and emotional joy.

Do you know why you get sick?

In today's society, it is all too easy to believe that we are our outer identities--that we are spouse or lover, child or parent, worker or artist, victim or addict. But now Dr. Warter, drawing on the age-old wisdom of the world's major religions, his own illuminating life experiences, and his consultations with the Dalai Lama and other great spiritual leaders, shows that in order to heal, to become whole, to become ourselves, we must go beyond the small, self-constructed circles of identity that we assume each day. For it is our very attachment to these false, limiting personalities that leads to chronic stress and disease...while keeping us from recognizing our greatest treasure: our sacred selves.

In Who Do You Think You Are? Dr. Warter offers the tools--from Buddhist prayers to original meditations--that can help us reconnect with our authentic selves. And he presents the other profound precepts of his new model of healing. Discover:

why any transition--birth, illness, death, or, indeed, any kind of change--can be a springboard for personal and spiritual evolution
how combining the use of modern medicine and alternative therapies with the power of an open heart and divine love can bring us to a place of unconditional wellness
how living in the moment results in greater awareness, a reduction in stress, and the development of real self-esteem

Who Do You Think You Are? is an important new addition to the latest literature on the healing of the mind, body, and spirit--one that provides a major breakthrough in how we view the world, ourselves, and all humanity.

More About the Author

Dr C WARTER is an American author and innovator, born in Chile, planetary citizen, Medical Doctor, Psychiatrist, Ph.D. and Transpersonal Psychologist, international lecturer, Emeritus Professor of International University of Professional Studies for his contributions to integral human development, essential development and integral health.
He has graduate studies at Harvard (Resident in Children's Hospital in Pediatric Medicine) and in Colorado in Family Medicine (Diplomate ABFP and American Board Psychiatric Medicine).

He coined in the seventies the concept of psychosynergy as a psychological notion to contemplate personal development through the Integration of spiritual values in human evolution relating to our souls journey and its responsibilities throughout life.

He has had close contact with many spiritual leader 's ranging from tribal chieftains to HH Dalai Lama, Pope JP II, Sai Baba , and he has studied Yoga, Sufism, Kabala and ethnobotanical traditions.

Warter's vision is unique in that it is inclusive, projected into the future valuing traditions of the past with respect yet realizing that destiny is being created in a singularly and mysteriously new way for each being and time of our species, which brings into place a non dogmatic, open, transformative energy that includes each individual and all into a free and new space.This requires deep inner work and a new understanding of the purpose of human life that separates his work from philosophical or psychological repetitious or theoretical explanations and requires a deep inner inquiry.

Warter is clear that we have completed a cycle of social and psychological planetary development and that we need to activate the neuroplasticity of new avenues of our being to reach a positive destiny of vital quality for the development of future generations.
through his work at The World Health Foundation for Development and Peace he received the United Nations Peace Messenger Award and was nominated to the Alternative Nobel, Right Livelihood Award, given to Edward Snowden in 2014. He was prefaced in his first book at the age of 23 by Pablo Neruda.

His methodology has continually evolved, from a time when training in entheogenic therapy was part of academic curriculum, to current time when it might be celebrating its return.

He is completing some books and teaching retreats and seminars.

He has been nourished from traditional psychoanalysis, to existential, humanistic, Transpersonal schools having been influenced by shamanism and its traditions who seem through meditation and ethnobotanical research to influence their return into modern ways of healing.

Format: Paperback
As one who reads most any book that pertains to finding your true self, this book came recommended. Along the lines of books written by authors like Arnold Patent, Dyer, Redfield, Katie, and Tolle this book shares the timeless truths of non duality. However, most of the book is pretty basic and IMHO not that well written. I'm not saying it's all bad, you can never hear enough that you should live in the now and work on your forgiveness-it's just been said I think better in other books.

Format: Paperback
I have the book. Autographed. I liked it. I heard Dr. Warter speak in the late 90s. I just found out he is a crook--[...]

I was alerted to this by a student. Goes back to the late 89s. he surrendered his US medical license.

The moral of the story? Don't be too full of yourself.
