When an individual labeled as schizophrenic comes to Bruce Scott for counseling, Scott discovers that only when he drops his external image as a skilled therapist—when he opens his heart and becomes real—does the young man respond to his questions. This insight profoundly changes him, and he begins to see the challenges of daily life with new eyes. He learns to suspend judgment, release conventional social biases, and ultimately find true freedom.
Bruce Scott, Ph.D. is a psychotherapist, teacher, and writer based in Northern California. His published writings and interviews have delved into the motivations of children and adults behind their public selves.
"Bruce Scott's Being Real gives directions about stepping out of what don Juan called 'Phantomhood.' It is fun reading and gets right to the point: use your awareness and discover reality."
—Dr. Arnold Mindell, Author of The Shaman's Body
"When you stand for what you believe, this is the ground beneath your feet. This is the common ground of being as the context for our daily life. A must read for all seekers."
—Ondrea and Stephen Levine, Authors of Who Dies? and Embracing the Beloved
