A fresh, realistic approach to altering one's destiny and accepting the responsibility that grows with freedom.

No meaning that comes from outside of ourselves is real. The Buddahood of each of us has already been obtained. We only need to recognize it.

“The most important things that each man must learn no one can teach him. Once he accepts this disappointment, he will be able to stop depending on the therapist, the guru who turns out to be just another struggling human being.”

Using the myth of Gilgamesh, Siddhartha, The Wife of Bath, Don Quizote . . . the works of Buber, Ginsberg, Shakespeare, Karka, Nin, Dante and Jung . . . a brilliant psychotherapist, guru and pilgrim shares the epic tales and intimate revelations that help to shape Everyman's journey through life.

Dr. Sheldon B. Kopp (1929–1999) was a psychotherapist and teacher of psychotherapy in Washington, D.C. He published in such publications as Psychology TodayAmerican Journal of Psychotherapy, and Psychiatric Quarterly, and was the author of Guru, The Hanged Man, and If You Meet the Buddha on the Road, Kill Him!
