Über diesen Titel:
author of Care of the Soul
"This book does something extraordinary. It propels the reader toward new ways of being and working in the world of the next millennium."
author of A Passion for the Possible
Here is wisdom for the workplace from thehusband-and-wife team of the nationally syndicated public radio series New Dimensions, which airs each week on more than 300 stations and is often described as "Bill Moyers on radio."
So many of us these days feel that we no longer have a life. All most of us have is a work. And so it behooves us to understand the true nature of work so that we can put its principles into practice at every moment. Some people are consumed by their work, others simply endure it as they anticipate the weekend or retirement, and hardly anyone enjoys it anymore. If we could find a way to transform how we view what we do so that it becomes a source of enjoyment and refreshment, it would be a cause
for celebration. And indeed, this is exactly what Michael and Justine Toms provide in their remarkable book--the fruit of their own twenty-five years of practical experience.
According to the Toms, the bottom line is: Has our compassion grown with our business? Has our wisdom expanded with our budget? And has our laughter increased with our staff? Their book looks at work as service and as a spiritually sustaining activity that promotes healing. It is brimful with stories and helpful techniques culled from their radio interviews with Joseph Campbell, Buckminster Fuller, the Dalai Lama, Alice Walker, Jon Kabat-Zinn, Marsha Sinetar, and many others.
"Right livelihood is one of the basic constituents of the path to enlightenment. Justine and Michael Toms have done a great service in helping us understand the nature of true work and its place in a conscious life. This is a thoughtful book and a useful one."
--Andrew Weil, M.D., author of Spontaneous Healing
"A wise, honest, insightful, funny, practical, and immensely readable book--nourishing and helpful to everyone, but must reading for anyone struggling with work or career." --Belleruth Naparstek,
author of Your Sixth Sense and
creator of the Health Journeys guided imagery audiotape series
"We each yearn to find our true work. Justine and Michael have a deep appreciation of what gets in the way and how we can persevere into that unfamiliar territory where our work awakens and enlivens us on a daily basis."
author of Peak Performers and coauthor of Wisdom Circles
"In a world of how-to books on everything from career-building to investment management and retirement planning, there is precious little written about the deeper meaning of work in our lives. Now comes an inspiring, liberating, and useful book from the rich minds and generous spirits of Justine and Michael Toms." --James A. Autry, author of
Love and Profit and Confessions of an Accidental Businessman
"This warm and wise book instructs, inspires, and reminds us that work at its best is a vocation, a calling to bring forth our gifts in the context of the community in which we work and serve."
--Joan Borysenko, author of Minding the Body, Mending the Mind
"Justine and Michael Toms write about what they practice deeply and lovingly--lifting the tasks of everyday life to exalt our hearts and spirit. For all of us who falter on the path, their work shines out as a brilliant guide."
--Paul Hawken, author of Growing a Business
