Product Description

Review

"If God created a new curriculum for the human race--one that might insure our continuedplace on this planet--I think he would make The Hope: A Guide to Sacred Activism required reading." Elizabeth Lesser, Co-Founder of Omega Institute & author of Broken Open --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

Sacred Activism is Compassion in Action -

the marriage of practical action with spiritual wisdom

to create a holy force capable of transforming our

world crisis and preserving our planet.

'When a generation is very, very lucky, it encounters

a teacher so illumined that the words he delivers must

be illumined as well. In the case of Andrew Harvey, the

light he sheds is like a meteor burst across the inner sky.'

Marianne Williamson

'Andrew is a genius and an inspired visionary.'

Caroline Myss

Written clearly and concisely, Harvey details the seven laws necessary for

sacred activism, from the importance of incorporating a spiritual

practice in your life to the transformation of anger into passion, and

the significance of community.

Just as Julia Cameron in The Artist's Way gave millions of people a

precise and interactive handbook to help them discover and explore their

creativity, The Hope gives the most practical possible help to all those who

realize the urgent truth of our world - that these troubled times offer a

gateway for dramatic and positive change - and who want to act as

effectively as possible from wisdom and compassion.

Andrew Harvey was born in south India in 1952. At 18, he moved

to England to attend Oxford University, where he later taught,

and for 30 years he plunged into myriad mystical traditions to learn their

secrets and practices. He was the subject of the BBC film documentary

The Making of a Modern Mystic, and is the founder and director of the

Institute for Sacred Activism. He is also the author of many influential

spiritual classics including Hidden Journey and Return of the Mother.

I am always interested in books that call for urgent change in our troubled world and particularly if the proposals are spiritually based and support practical actions that are accessible to us all, so that we can all become "active agents of change." But as a Christian I came to this book by modern mystic and visionary Andrew Harvey with some suspicion and caution, particularly as I have recently completed reading Truth and Tolerance by Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger, (now Pope Benedict XVI) a detailed theological and philosophical treatise written from a very different and traditional Christian perspective.
However I warmed to Harvey's theme as I saw the respect he holds for the faiths and religious beliefs held by others, for the wisdom of elders and his love for Jesus Christ, the greatest love of his heart throughout his life, he claims. But this is the Jesus Christ of the Gospel of Thomas, and many may be unable to reconcile the Gnostic teachings of Christ with their own faith.
Nonetheless "hope for our survival lies in massive spiritual transformation and radical action," he writes, and I cannot disagree with that. After many years of study and immersing himself in different mystical traditions and their sacred texts, which he uses generously throughout this book, he is well qualified to write of these things and to form a vision of a new mystic spirituality. It is hard to disagree with the aims of any mysticism that calls for love and compassion in all we do, for unconditional forgiveness, and that understands our innate need to live in joy and peace, with total respect and love for all sentient beings.

Format: Paperback
A shimmering guide to saving our world and ourselves, The Hope does not shy away from the horror that we have created in our ignorance. Because of this,some have criticised Andrews message as being fear based. Andrew is like a man in a burning house, screaming for those sleeping inside to wake up. Yes, it is a fearful thing to be woken like this, but better that than burning to death! His message isn't just pointing to the fire, but showing us a way out.

If we are to make effective change in our world, we MUST acknowledge the real issues, and Andrew does a beautiful job of illustrating the state of our world today. More than that, he offers real solutions, things that anyone can do no matter what their background or financial status. The Hope he raises is that we ALL can make a difference if we choose.

This book is a must read for anyone who cares about the balance in our world and is brave enough to look into the darkness in order to help.

This book is so very inspiring, I couldnt put it down!. It truly is a highly practical handbook on how to be an effective force for change in the world. Andrew Harvey is a very humble yet passionate advocate for the divine mother.It had me weeping in many places, and has really inspired me to get on and really do more for charities and to help in my local community more.I would highly highly recommend it! Thankyou Andrew!

Andrew Harvey wants to wake up the world and shake it into action, although the hour is very late indeed. He envisions groups of activists banding together, empowered by divine energy to transform the juggernaut structures man has created, in his ego madness, which are now out of control and threatening to lay waste to the planet and all its interconnected life forms.
I love this book and its message so much. Andrew Harvey, who had never been on my radar until earlier this year, is one of the most transparent, engaged, self-searching, love-infused teachers I have ever encountered. I saw him present a workshop in London a few days ago. Everyone should experience his extraordinary, passionate vision.
I had thought I was awake, but 'The Hope' has really shaken me up and made me dare to entertain the possibility that I, and you, could be part of something truly transcendent.
