This newest offering from the author of Healing Dreams and Remarkable Recovery is an exploration of compassion and the role and importance it plays in our lives as he seeks to develop more compassion in his own life.
A revision of Field Notes on the Compassionate Life, Barasch’s warm, approachable, conversational style is sincere without being overly sentimental. He draws from anecdotes and conversations with others including prominent spiritual figures as well as scientific research and personal experience to form his discussion about compassion.
Barasch is also the founder of the Green World Campaign, and at least part of the proceeds from every book sold go to the Campaign’s work of planting trees in environmentally damaged areas; that in itself makes the book worth buying, though the message of The Compassionate Life is one not to be missed. From Berrett-Koehler Publishers and available from your local, independent bookseller. (Buy local, buy independent, and tell ‘em you saw it on ElephantJournal.com!)
