Publisher's Summary

Our human psyches possess astonishing resources that wait within us, but we might not even know they exist until we discover how to access them and cultivate their powers, their untapped potentials and depths. Wild Mind identifies these resources - which Bill Plotkin calls the four facets of the self, or the four dimensions of our innate human wholeness - and also the four sets of fragmented or wounded subpersonalities that form during childhood. Rather than proposing ways to eliminate our subpersonalities (which is not possible) or to beat them into submission, Plotkin describes how to cultivate the four facets of the self and discover the gifts of our subpersonalities. The key to reclaiming our original wholeness is not merely to suppress psychological symptoms, recover from addictions and trauma, or manage stress, but rather to fully embody our multifaceted wild minds, commit ourselves to the largest, soul-infused story we're capable of living, and serve the greater Earth community.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

The narration is a diservice to the topic of the book.
such an important topic read so soulessly.

A magnum opus read by someone who doesn’t understand it.

Plotkin has synthesised a body of work in this book that is truly extraordinary. He also should be commended for the candid way he shares insights on the root causes of the societal problems we face as a species. He speaks his wild mind, and pulls no punches. This work contains profound insight on the nature of what prevents humans living into their optimal potential, as well as practical processes to bring ourselves and in turn, our species back into a state of alignment.

The narration however is distracting. I get the sense that the narrator has not read the content even once before recording the voice track and is struggling to grasp the complexity of it, while trying to sound like he fully comprehends it at the same time.

If you don’t want to end up paying for this book twice, skip the audio version and buy a hard copy. Personally, the narrator made this a much more challenging listen than it needed to be, and in the end I’d rather just read it myself.

Audible would do well to make sure that voice artists are paid for an extra days work in order to have time to read it before being expected to perform it.

great book that I couldn't listen to

this book is fascinating and well written. the narrator is monotonous and mechanical, it was so bad I couldn't get through 30 minutes. I bought the print book
