In this talk from their online course The Pearl Without Price, Doug and Catherine discuss the nature of the ego and how we can step outside the box of our comfort zone to experience greater degrees of freedom, bliss and peace. 
 
These ideas are explained in detail in their bestselling book, Wasteland to Pureland: Reflections on the Path to Awakening. The first section of the book is entitled The Pearl Without Price and covers a variety of topics, including spiritual awakening in the modern age, the four deep ego fears and freedom from trauma.
