Quakers have long been respected for their simplicity, integrity, truthfulness, non violence and undestanding of the need for silence. This inspirational little book explores Quaker values and shows how - even if we are not members of the Society of Friends - we can bring Quaker practices and ideals into our everyday lives and relationships with others. Including a fascinating chapter on how to use the tools of Quakerism in a business context, there is also much helpful advice on how to slow down, still the mind and 'let the heart create for us'.

Buchbeschreibung Ebury Publishing Apr 1999, 1999. Taschenbuch. Buchzustand: Neu. 213x137x14 mm. Neuware - Quakerism has been a source of inspiration for over 300 years. Combining spirituality with the practical life, its insights have a universal appeal that is particularly relevant to today's world. Quakers deeply value inner peace and tranquility and believe that there is 'that of God' within us all. They also have a compassionate determination to alleviate suffering and a profound commitment to peace and non-violence. 'Listening to the Light' shows us how to incorporate Quaker ideals and practices into our lives--to find our own Light-the Divine-within ourselves, to realize that the everyday is spiritual, to simplify our lives and care for the planet, to bring a sense of commitment and integrity to our actions, and to learn to listen. 192 pp. Englisch.
