Summary

Anthony Peake is engaged in one of the most important strands of ontological inquiry of modern times, nothing less than unravelling the Gordian knot that is the mystery of our existence." (Bob Rickard, founder editor of Fortean Times)

Appearing in Greek mythology and popularized by Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials trilogy, the Daemon is broadly understood as a guiding spirit which exists as one half of your split self. 

In The Daemon: A Guide to Your Extraordinary Secret Self, Anthony Peake proposes that people consist of not one but two separate consciousnesses - everyday consciousness and that of The Daemon, a higher being that seems to possess knowledge of future events. Drawing upon phenomena such as déjà vu and near-death experiences, he explores the ways that our Daemon breaks through into our consciousness and can subconsciously impact upon our decisions. 

From the author of Is There Life After Death?, this endlessly fascinating book draws upon the neurology, metaphysics and theology. It also follows the stories of famous figures, including Byron, Geothe, Jean Cocteau, and many others who have "felt a force outside themselves". This radical book will change the way you perceive reality, time, and ultimately yourself.

Brilliant and eye opening

fascinating listen, I was very surprised how scrutinising the author was of their own theory, with limitations and implications discussed throughout. Scientific enough to make me think twice on my assumption on the nature of consciousness.

Food for thought

Love the ideas within this book and feel more research is required to confirm its findings

absolutely amazing!!

I immediately bought ALL of anthony peake’s audiobooks after listening to this! i will likely buy the physical copies as well…THAT’S how good this book is! My only critique is that sometimes I wish he would read a bit slower as the content is DEEP! I’m now listening to his first book (which is also uber amazing ) and he seems to read a bit slower as to let all the knowledge sink in—which is perfect! Mr. Peake—please continue expounding on your theories…i will literally buy everything you create!

No guide to my extraordinary secret self

I was hoping there would be some techniques or methods or rituals or something to access and have communication with my demon.
But I spent all those hours listening to a guy reading stories about other people experiences.
It was definitely not what I expected

TRULY AMAZING...

I loved this entire book from the detailed writing to the well-delivered eloquent narration of this unique material. an opening to The Virgin human mind of the true mysteries which exist but have been suppressed by religion, media, and other forms to suppress TRUTH of our existence and or purpose for and of existence...

Anecdotal and subjective opinion at best

Borderline thought provoking clouded with doubt and uncertainty on the credibility of the author.
Too bad he couldn't speak more to the evidence he states to backup his claims and talks authoritatively but doesn't deliver.

Thought provoking and honest

Fascinating new theory. Intriguing, well read, and intelligent, the author presents a remarkable case for his idea.
I look forward to much morel

Excellent Book

This is another excellent book by Anthony Peake. It is well written and very profound. I’ve often wondered about a personal Daemon and Anthony Peake explains much in this book. I highly recommend this book as well as other books by this author.
