The Blind Spot Effect: How to Stop Missing What's Right in Front of You Kelly Boys

An eye-opening guide to seeing ourselves more fully.

At home or work, do you find yourself in similar conflicts or situations again and again? Do your relationships seem fine — but you sometimes wonder if those around you might disagree? On an immediate level, have you ever wished for greater clarity, depth, and delight in all of your experiences?

“It’s much easier to see the unconscious and self-defeating habits of others than our own,” Kelly Boys notes, “and perceptually, to miss so much that’s happening around us”.

In this compelling book, readers will explore the many kinds of 'blind spots', from the physical to the interpersonal: how we get them, how to reveal them, and how to work with our newfound awareness. Drawing upon neuroscience, meditation research, true personal accounts, and more, The Blind Spot Effect invites us into this hidden world.

What unfolds is both a learning journey and a practice guide to bring our own unseen dimensions to light, learn from them, and help others along the way.
