How do you appear to others? What makes you uniquely fascinating?

Games People Play gives you the tools for doing so, allowing you to forge deeper and more meaningful relationships with those around you.

Regardless of whether you believe it or not, Dr. Joe Dispenza, the author of this book is convinced we can.

And his faith is centered around his research on how common people can do uncommon things – a topic he has been researching on at his advanced workshop since 2012.

in fact, lead a more supernatural life and gain access to spiritual realms if we live a meaningful life.
