Augusto DeRosa PhD is a psychotherapist and a professor of psychology at Columbia University. Like most shrinks he thinks he has his mind pretty much figured out. At least that’s what he believed until he went to sleep one December night in 2009. Before that night he was a man driven by invisible beliefs that had shut off his pilot and turned on his auto-pilot. In that sense he wasn’t much different than his patients. That night switched off Augusto’s auto pilot. The story is Augusto’s account of his psyche’s gradual metamorphosis from a mind ruled by male dominated dogma and rational linear thought to a mind driven by the feminine principles of intuition, impulse and imagination. Tom Friedman tells of the transition from left brain to right brain in his award winning book, The Earth is Flat, but Augusto never read the book. The process leads him through a maze of confusion as habituated beliefs that he had turned into truths are challenged from every direction. The change affects every aspect of Augusto’s life, including how he addresses the problems of his colorful list of patients, his drug addicted nephew and his new love interest, Sarah Hastings.
