From the Back Cover
At a time when many of us seek ways of working and living thatare more resonant with our souls, A Hidden Wholeness offers insightinto our condition and guidance for finding what weseek–within ourselves and with each other.
"The soul is generous: it takes in the needs of the world. Thesoul is wise: it suffers without shutting down. The soul ishopeful: it engages the world in ways that keep opening our hearts.The soul is creative: it finds its way between realities that mightdefeat us and fantasies that are mere escapes. All we need to do isto bring down the wall that separates us from our own souls anddeprives the world of the soul's regenerative powers."

Don't get me wrong. The early sections do cover important concepts and principles, but the book soon turns to circles of trust. It then became less useful to me and, I suspect, to many.
Having said that, I am dismayed by how many books on exploring spirituality seem focused on first world problems. There's nothing wrong with that, but they lack universality.
-Amos Smith (author of Healing The Divide: Recovering Christianity's Mystic Roots)
Parker Palmer is always an inspiration.
