BECOMING WISE


BECOMING WISE

KRISTA TIPPETT    Book Number: 84920    Product format: Paperback

Sub-titled 'An Inquiry Into the Mystery and Art of Living', here is a Penguin paperback edition of the New York Times bestseller. Krista Tippett has created a masterclass in living in a fractured world. Fracture she says is not the whole story of our time. The enduring question of what it means to be human has become inextricable from the challenge of who we are to one another. She insists on the possibility of personal depth and common life, nurtured by science and 'spiritual technologies', with civility and love as muscular public practice. Accompanied by a cross-disciplinary dream team of teachers, she shows us how, and she has been described as a modern-day Simone Weil. Confucius was born in China, the Buddha sought enlightenment, Plato and Aristotle examined life and mind and soul, and the Hebrew prophets began to pen a people of god into being. The stranger, the orphan, the outcast, was linked to one's own wellbeing. The author says 'My work has shown me that spiritual geniuses of the everyday are everywhere.' Across social and medical disciplines, science and the knowledge of our bodies and brains, spiritual life is evolving and we are gathering a radical new understanding of the nature of human vitality and wholeness. 288pp in Penguin paperback. Remainder mark. Special import.
