This book offers people the experience in awareness with a series of exercises and experiments the author has used in teaching Gestalt therapy. These experiments are for everyone to make use of. Our main sense of identity is found in this state of being awake and aware in which you are reading this book. Let's call this Ordinary Waking Consciousness (OWC). This is a way of being in the world we are very familiar with. There are more states than this one and this book explores them with the reader through these experiments in awareness.
