Publisher's Summary

Anthony Peake is engaged in one of the most important strands of ontological inquiry of modern times, nothing less than unravelling the Gordian knot that is the mystery of our existence." (Bob Rickard, founder editor of Fortean Times)

Appearing in Greek mythology and popularized by Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials trilogy, the Daemon is broadly understood as a guiding spirit which exists as one half of your split self. 

In The Daemon: A Guide to Your Extraordinary Secret Self, Anthony Peake proposes that people consist of not one but two separate consciousnesses - everyday consciousness and that of The Daemon, a higher being that seems to possess knowledge of future events. Drawing upon phenomena such as déjà vu and near-death experiences, he explores the ways that our Daemon breaks through into our consciousness and can subconsciously impact upon our decisions. 

From the author of Is There Life After Death?, this endlessly fascinating book draws upon the neurology, metaphysics and theology. It also follows the stories of famous figures, including Byron, Geothe, Jean Cocteau, and many others who have "felt a force outside themselves". This radical book will change the way you perceive reality, time, and ultimately yourself.

Revolutionary

An ear opening experience that raises more questions than not about the existence of reality and the human condition.

Great awakening

Great insight and review of scientific data and perspective of our reality and who we really are. The information should be considered by the true student of life and purpose. Defining what spirituality is and needed. Nothing is a coincidence.

Brilliant and eye opening

fascinating listen, I was very surprised how scrutinising the author was of their own theory, with limitations and implications discussed throughout. Scientific enough to make me think twice on my assumption on the nature of consciousness.
