This book offers deep exploration of inner life as an approach to healing. Egocide (when the false self symbolically dies) is an antidote to suicide. Research on bridge-jump survivor experiences led to developing this approach. The book (illustrated with paintings) profiles 4 people who opted for the path of egocide. Their experiences with dream analysis, painting, ceramics, journal writing, & dance in conjunction with psychotherapy, led them from sorrow to joy & a rebirth of purpose & meaning.
