If narcissism is taking ourselves to be what we are not, then at some point we might ask:  Are we the image that we have of ourselves--whether grandiose or repulsive? Or are we a human form of something more boundless and mysterious? 

In this video, retreatants use a mirror as their gazing object. In the process, they begin to see (as well as see-past) what they commonly take themselves to be.
