Instead they go underground and become troublesome - sometimes tormenting - as we grow older.

The authors provide intelligent ways to explore paths not taken, without causing damage to ourselves and to others. They show how to:,Identify those unfulfilled hopes, yearnings or needs that have gone "underground". Discover how we unconsciously burden others, friends, spouses, colleagues with our unlived hopes. Create new life options and unlock hidden talents. Transform fruitless fantasies or "silly" dreams into tools for inner growth. Start truly living in the present moment and revitalise a connection with God and spirit and attain peace in purpose in our mature years.
