We evolved to have an ego because having a coherent sense of self can help us to survive and thrive. However, our ego can become overly-attached to just about anything - status, power, prestige, other people, our team, tribe, or political party, possessions, and so on. When our ego becomes overly-attached, it can cause unnecessary suffering on both individual and societal levels. Having a better understanding of what the ego is and how it works can help us loosen the grip that it sometimes has upon us. As we do this, we are better able to make more skillful, effective decisions in life without the clouds of the ego obscuring our vision. Please join me, Dr. Mike Brooks, and my trusty intern and co-pilot, Patrick Kennedy, as we explore this important topic!
