A Hidden Wholeness: The Journey toward an Undivided Life
Date: October 2009
Duration: 5 hours 56 minutes
A Hidden Wholeness is a thoughtful and heartfelt examination of the sources and consequences 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, bestselling author and teacher Parker J. Palmer speaks to the heart of our yearning for integrity, authenticity, and wholeness in a fractured 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.
