My fifth book was published yesterday! Hope you enjoy the read. Here is the book's Amazon URL: https://www.amazon.com/dp/0578977001 The paperback is ready and the e-book will be out in a couple of days.
In the book, you can enjoy essays on societal, spiritual, and personal transformation. In three collections, the sixty-five essays, written over fifty-six years (1966 - 2021), provide helpful insights, inspiration, models, and methods. You will encounter ideas and experiences of the author and also those drawn from UNDP, the Institute of Cultural Affairs (ICA), Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, Jean Houston, Ken Wilber, Thich Nhat Hanh, Humberto Maturana, Willis Harman, Paul Tillich, Rudolph Bultmann, and others.
You will explore nine themes of whole systems change, sustainable human development, visionary social activism, demythologized Christianity, progressive Buddhism, worldly spirituality, and intimate reflections on the author’s vocation, awareness, and presence. Individual topics include 9/11, Venezuela, HIV/AIDS, governance, urbanization and urban development, the movement of movements (MoM), social artistry, seminar designing, personal grief and joy, and pandemic living.
In our time of crisis and opportunity, this book offers a way of understanding a peaceful perspective that can help strengthen your compassion for self, others, and the Earth-community.
