The E-Word: Ego, Enlightenment & Other Essentials

by Cate Montana, MA

Available January 27th, 2017

Author's Mission

My mission for The E Word is to awaken women and men to the nature of the ego mind that keeps us separated, competitive and unhappy while showing how to leapfrog beyond the illusions it spins into a luscious transpersonal awareness that liberates each individual to live life as the joyous creative adventure it was meant to be.

About the book

A book of liberation and ecstasy, The E-Word lucidly explains how the ego is created, how it thinks, and how its limited mindset can be expanded—not inflated—into a joyous transpersonal perspective that makes isolation, fear and insecurity bad dreams of the past. Stuffed with electrifying insights, funny stories and transformative meditations and exercises, The E-Word is the ultimate how-to guide for discovering the “real you” within.


How the book works

  • Beautifully written and fast-paced, The E-Word strips the ego bare in highly entertaining, relatable ways, revealing our erroneous beliefs about “self” and how even common self-improvement processes and techniques actually send us on a wild goose chase away from the very happiness, fulfillment, and wisdom we seek.
  • The book also reveals how the ego co-opts religion and spirituality, dangling enlightenment in front of us as a prize to be achieved rather than the natural flowering of the Great Mind within that shows up after the ego has been put in its place and a vaster consciousness revealed.

Interview with the Author


 Reader reviews & reveals

"An excellent and entertaining look at the issues, challenges, and resolutions that come with the territory of awakening.”
— Gary Renard, bestselling author of The Disappearance of the Universe trilogy
"With wit and eloquence, Cate Montana exposes the ego's masquerading effort to convince us we are made in its image and likeness.  With equal skill she holds before us the essence of our true nature—creative, free, and whole."
— Michael Bernard Beckwith, author of Spiritual Liberation
“The E-Word is brilliant, fast, fun, and straight from the hip, all at the same time answering life’s eternal question, ‘Who am I?’ and ‘Why am I here?’ Page after page my heart went ‘Aha!’ and then I’d snort with a sudden burst of laughter. I love this book. Very clear and on target!”
— Dr. Darren Weissman, author The Heart of the Matter and creator of the LifeLine Technique®
