Healing The Heart Of Democracy

Healing The Heart Of Democracy

The Courage To Create A Politics Worthy Of The Human Spirit

BY PARKER PALMER
Friend Parker Palmer builds on his own extensive experience to examine the personal and social infrastructure of American politics. What he did for educators in The Courage to Teach he does here for citizens by looking at the dynamics of our inner lives for clues to reclaiming our civic well-being.

A Hidden Wholeness

A Hidden Wholeness

The Journey Toward An Undivided Life + Circles Of Trust Dvd

BY PARKER PALMER
Friend Parker Palmer seeks to help us "rejoin soul and role," so that individuals and communities can be healed from the ravages of consumerism, injustice and violence. In his classic style, the task is fleshed out with stories, poems, personal confessions and a plan - concrete steps for creating "circles of trust" where honest, open sharing allows each person's "inner teacher" to show up - places where we can sit and wait for our souls to tell the truth. For the paperback edition a DVD about these circles has been added.

Meeting For Learning

Meeting For Learning

Education In A Quaker Context

BY PARKER PALMER
"Much of what I want to say about education in a Quaker context can be organized around one of Quakerism's most central, concrete, yet spacious images: the image of "meeting." Among Friends, of course, there is first the meeting for worship, but then there is the meeting for business, the meeting for marriage, the meeting on the occasion of a graduation , the meeting in memorial of one who has died.... Friends made a simple and compelling point: The common element in both worship and business should be the search for truth - and the expectation that, if we give it space and time, truth will come to us." - Palmer, from the pamphlet

The Promise Of Paradox

The Promise Of Paradox

A Celebration Of Contradictions In The Christian Life

BY PARKER PALMER
First published in 1980-and reissued here with a feisty new introductory essay-The Promise of Paradox launched Parker J. Palmer's career as an author and his ongoing exploration of the contradictions that vex and enrich our lives. In this probing and heartfelt book, the distinguished writer, teacher, and activist examines some of the challenging questions at the core of Christian spirituality. How do we live with the apparent opposition between good and evil, scarcity and abundance, individuality and community, death and new life? We can hold them as paradoxes, not "either/ors," allowing them to open our minds and hearts to new ways of seeing and being. reduced from $18.95

An Undivided Life

An Undivided Life

Seeking Wholeness In Ourselves, Our Work And Our World

BY PARKER PALMER
What does it mean to live "an undivided life"? For Quaker Parker Palmer, it means living a life of authenticity in which "soul and role" are fully aligned. Here he offers heartwarming stories, insightful reflections, and poetic wisdom from his lifetime of work. He explores: How we can choose an undivided life in a world riddled with divisions; Why we need to "act in every situation in ways that honor the soul"; How authenticity, connectedness, and the "inner teacher" are critical for living more deeply and finding fulfillment; Why we need true community, a "circle of trust", to take an inner journey toward wholeness.Nearly 6 hours of audio.
