A revelatory new theory of consciousness that returns emotions to the center of mental life. For Mark Solms, one of the boldest thinkers in contemporary neuroscience, discovering how consciousness comes about has been a lifetime’s quest. Scientists consider it the "hard problem" because it seems an impossible task to understand why we feel a subjective sense of self and how it arises in the brain. Venturing into the elementary physics of life, Solms has now arrived at an astonishing answer. In The Hidden Spring, he brings forward his discovery in accessible language and graspable analogies. Solms is a frank and fearless guide on an extraordinary voyage from the dawn of neuropsychology and psychoanalysis to the cutting edge of contemporary neuroscience, adhering to the medically provable. But he goes beyond other neuroscientists by paying close attention to the subjective experiences of hundreds of neurological patients, many of whom he treated, whose uncanny conversations expose much about the brain’s obscure reaches. Most importantly, you will be able to recognize the workings of your own mind for what they really are, including every stray thought, pulse of emotion, and shift of attention. The Hidden Spring will profoundly alter your understanding of your own subjective experience.

Already Within is a true love story. As you turn over its pages, your life, too, will be turned around. These reflections need to be lingered over, mulled over, wondered over. They are drawn from the seasons of the year, the seasons of the liturgical cycle and the seasons of our hearts. They empower us to see the treasures of joy and courage already within us, to divine the springs of light and love hidden in all that happens to us - even in the most painful experiences. They fill us with hope. They tug at our hearts and make us cry. They remind us of a precious wisdom that we carry deep within us - but have almost forgotten. They restore our beauty. They give us permission to believe in ourselves, to be ourselves. In that sense, they save us. It is impossible to read this book without being transformed by it. Our lives are radically altered when we learn to see everything differently, to reflect on our experiences in a new way. Already Within contains the distilled essence of the author's life-ministry of preaching and teaching. Originally written for The Tablet, this collection represents O'Leary's best writing - challenging, compelling, consoling, prophetic and prayerful. As Richard Rohr said of O'Leary's bestselling Travelling Light, 'It is such wisdom as Daniel O'Leary's that will lead our people through this dark and narrow time in Western Christianity. God always sends us what we need.'
