“Every moment is an opportunity for you to do better and greater, so do just that. Be grateful for the opportunity time gives you to be better, and do better today, than you were yesterday.”

It takes a special kind of person to be brave enough to make this statement to the world, “You are not perfect the way you are.” In his first book, Sovereign Ipsissimus Dave Lanyon doesn’t just say this to the world as a critique, but rather he says this with deep compassion and faith that humanity can change and be better. He believes this so much that he wrote this book to share the keys and wisdom that will help people to Know Thyself by accepting the reality of their imperfection and taking the steps to progress toward true Joy.

"Reading this masterpiece of wisdom made me wish I immediately had several copies to gift to so many people! I honestly can’t think of anyone who wouldn’t instantly fall in love with the wisdom of hermetics that Ipsissimus Dave so masterfully presents. If you want to deepen your understanding of human nature, how the world works and deepen your own wisdom, this is a MUST READ!"

"Dave Lanyon’s book takes the reader on a journey that joins common sense with the mystical. He is at his best in those pages where his passion on the subjects he writes about becomes palpable."
—Robert Kelly, Montreal, PQ


This book is not only filled with endless “AHA” moments and keys, but really offers the opportunity to look at your life and start taking responsibility for where you are at and where you are going. Many blind spots were revealed and certain complexities or confusions in life not only become simplified through Ipsissimus Dave’s words, but very quickly diminished in size to become approachable and digestible. Empowering through awareness and self responsibility. Great Read." —Olivia Carli, Toronto, ON
