Primal Mind Primal Game Book 1 Cover

Book One

This work posits three biologically-determined mindsets and how they shape the way we think, feel and react in a largely unconscious fashion. Knowing how they operate helps us not to become their victim.

Introducing the Primal Process

Just what is the Primal Mind anyway? And what is its relationship to the Primal Game? In this brief 4 minute clip, psychiatrist Hifzija Bajramovic introduces the basic ingredients you need to know in exploring the evolutionary origins of the human mind-brain system.

We aren't out of the woods yet!

Is it any wonder our world sometimes goes ape? Genetically speaking, 99% of our DNA is the same as our closest ape relative. As such, our biological nature carries within it a number of largely unconscious tendencies that influence how we see both ourselves and others more often than we might realize.

So what does it mean for your own daily life? And what does it mean when it comes to managing your own mind? Primal Mind Primal Games tells the tale. Built on 10 years of comparative science  research, and drawing on 40+ years of professional counselling experience, Primal Process Theory lets you untangle the jungle of thoughts and emotions that dance daily through your head and heart, revealing the instinctual forces that can both sabotage your life, but also catapult you forward to new levels of understanding and achievement. Comprised of four major components, Primal Mind Primal Games unveils a series of 'skeleton keys' that lets you see, understand and navigate unseen instinct-based programs driving many aspects of how you and others think:

3 default mindsets
6 comparison patterns
4 REAL Orientation Function force factors
1 integrating function

So whether you work in business, advertising, politics, government, law enforcement, the justice system, journalism, the entertainment industry, or in the spheres of education or health care, you owe it to yourself to know how the hidden programs running the ape side of our nature ultimately shape so much of why we do what we do. The restless ape within will thank you, as will those in your world.
