A timely and thought provoking book,
This review is from: Healing This Wounded Earth: With Compassion, Spirit and the Power of Hope (Paperback)
There is a wealth of literature in circulation elaborating the challenges faced by the 21st century citizien - from the stability of our climate, to the safety of our streets and the state of our health. However, few have looked to the individual rather than the state as the basis of solving these problems. In this gently and thoughtfully persuasive book Dr. Stoneham looks at these and other challenges through the lense of the "wounded healer" - making the argument that not only does true change come from individuals rather than states, but also that individuals who have themselves suffered are best placed to make that change. As the power of the internet makes social networks an increasingly and visibly powerful part of our world, this is a timely and thought provoking book.
