Bernard Starr is a modern Diogenes, who is lighting the way for a nation of aging boomers toward a more honest and effective understanding of themselves. His pathway bridges the analytical framework of psychology with the seeker's desire for a richer sense of life's meaning. In Escape Your Own Prison he illuminates the darker reaches of our egos and shows how we can free ourselves from the confines of our limited perceptions of who we are.

This book is not good news for traditional psychotherapists, but for those of us caught between the demands of the ego and the desire for transcendence, it's a way out and a way up. Thank you Dr. Starr. (Emily Squires, co-founder of the Coalition for One Voice, award-winning director and documentary filmmaker)
Beyond the realm of faith and psychology, Dr. Starr's Escape Your Own Prison takes the reader on a radical inner journey which challenges preconceived notions about true spiritual consciousness. It offers a refreshing new approach to break free from the illusory prison of the ego and a roadmap to awakening to what he calls omni-consciousness, a powerful state of being with lightening rod focus and limitless potential. (Judy Martin, founder Work/LifeMonitor.com, formerly of American Public Media's Marketplace Morning Report)
Not only a veteran educator in developmental psychology, as well as a practicing psychologist, media host, and writer, Starr has the good judgement that comes from facing himself, asking hard questions, making hard decisionss, and living fully the hard-won lessons of his own experience. His common-sense insights satisfy; his take on the subject matter feels solid. (Melanie Mineo Metapsychology Online Reviews)

The easy to follow discussions, examples and analogies, question-and-answer section, and affirmations sections are a delight. It is only that my ingrained Western thinking gets in the way of me fully comprehending everything on the first pass. The fact that I now recognize that there is a difference between my Western thinking of "me" and omniconsciousness shows how deeply the book reached me. This is a book to read many times.
