A solid analysis of spiritual activism. Drawing on their extensive experience as spiritual activists, the authors offer an excellent overview of their topic. I appreciate the wide range of spiritual-activist texts they cite and the real-life examples of spiritual activism they offer. Their discussion is grounded and visionary. Highly recommended.

It also discusses the psychology of consciousness. The book talks ...more
