A Hidden Wholeness: The Journey Toward An Undivided Life-Welcoming the Soul and Weaving Community in a Wounded World
– by Parker J. Palmer
Parker Palmer always calls me to look inside by examining not only my mind but also my soul/heart/spirit. I have appreciated his circle of trust approach and his invitation to a kind of deep listening that leaders in the church often find it difficult to do. The difficulty is present because listening to the whole of our life takes deliberate time and effort.
The integrated life is essential ingredient to being leaders of spiritual communities. To live integrated (whole) is to be a person who both lives and teaches the transformational life.
