The recent and devastating duplicities in business, religion, and politics have less to do with a failure of ethics than with a lack of integrity and wholeness. In their hearts, many who have been involved in recent scandals and violations of public trust knew the right thing to do but did not do it, unlike the few who spoke up and told the truth. The need to reunite that inner sense of truth and integrity with outer behavior has never been more urgent.Printed Pages: 272. Buchnummer des Verkäufers
Inhaltsangabe: A Hidden Wholeness is a thoughtful and heartfelt examination of the alienation we feel when our inner and outer lives become divorced from each other, when external forces pressure us to depart from our soul s true yearnings. The book lifts up the problem of the divided life, diagnoses its sources, assesses its personal and social costs, and offers a model of community that will help people live with greater integrity and wholeness. As he did for vocation in Let Your Life Speak and for inner lives of teachers in The Courage to Teach, best-selling author and teacher Parker J. Palmer speaks to the heart of our yearning for integrity, authenticity, and wholeness in a fractured world.
Umschlagtext: In A Hidden Wholeness, Parker J. Palmer reveals the same compassionate intelligence and informed heart that shaped his best-selling books Let Your Life Speak and The Courage to Teach. Here he speaks to our yearning to live undivided lives–lives that are congruent with our inner truth–in a world filled with the forces of fragmentation.
Mapping an inner journey that we take in solitude and in the company of others, Palmer describes a form of community that fits the limits of our active lives. Defining a "circle of trust" as "a space between us that honors the soul," he shows how people in settings ranging from friendship to organizational life can support each other on the journey toward living "divided no more."
Inspired by Palmer’s writing and speaking–and challenged by the conditions of twenty-first century life–people across the country, from many walks of life, have been coming together in circles of trust to reclaim their integrity and help foster wholeness in their workplaces and their world.
For over a decade, the principles and practices in this book have been proven on the ground–by parents and educators, clergy and politicians, community organizers and corporate executives, physicians and attorneys, and many others who seek to rejoin soul and role in their private and public lives.
A Hidden Wholeness weaves together four themes that its author has pursued for forty years: the shape of an integral life, the meaning of community, teaching and learning for transformation, and nonviolent social change. The hundreds of thousands of people who know Parker J. Palmer’s books will be glad to find the journey continued here–and readers new to his work will be glad they joined that journey.
