About the Book

We live in a marketplace filled with valuable ideas for how to be happy, yet people continue to suffer. We are just now awakening to the principal source of our unhappiness and suffering, which is ego. Ego wreaks havoc in our daily lives, from the pain that individuals, couples, and families experience all the way up to global tensions and international conflict. Most people think of ego as an inflated sense of self-importance, but this is only a fraction of what it really is. Ego is the misidentification of who we are as beings. It drives us to think and behave in ways that are inconsistent and incongruent with whom we really are, leading always to dissatisfaction and suffering. 


The secret to finding happiness is to loosen ourselves from ego’s painful grip by going beyond ego and entering the world of Spirit—the source of true joy and peace. To do so, we must first travel through the ego. Without proper guidance, this trip can be perilous, because ego, to ensure its own survival, makes every attempt to derail us along the way. Beyond the Ego is an easy-to-follow, step-by-step guide to help you make this journey safely. The seeds of happiness, joy, and peace of mind will take root at the outset of your journey and continue to grow every step of your way.

About the Author

Dr. David Mutchler has earned degrees in education, philosophy, psychology, and social work, with advanced studies in religion. The painful challenges on his own journey inspired a determined search for the source of and resolution to the troubles most people experience in their lives. In that search, David discovered that the answers lie in the spiritual realm, where ego causes havoc with our spiritual birthrights—joy, love, and peace. As an integrative thinker, he has brought his various studies and life experiences together in a unique perspective that has relevance to individuals, nations, and a globe of diverse peoples.


Two of the trademarks of David’s work are his insistence on the simplification of concepts that are typically thought to be both complex and esoteric, and his “how-to” approach to helping people assimilate and apply those concepts to bring more peace into their lives.


David resides in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and now devotes the majority of his time to writing, speaking, and leading weekend intensives as a spiritual teacher and guide.
