A Hidden Wholeness is a thoughtful and heartfelt examination of sources and consequences of the alienation we feel when our inner and outer lives become divorced from each other, when external forces pressure us to depart from our soul's true yearnings.

Publisher's Summary

A Hidden Wholeness is a thoughtful and heartfelt examination of sources and consequences of the alienation we feel when our inner and outer lives become divorced from each other, when external forces pressure us to depart from our soul's true yearnings.

The book lifts up the problem of the "divided life", diagnoses its sources, assesses its personal and social costs, and offers a model of community that will help people live with greater integrity and wholeness.

As he did for vocation in Let Your Life Speak and for the inner lives of teachers in The Courage to Teach, best-selling author and teacher Parker J. Palmer speaks to the heart of our yearning for integrity, authenticity, and wholeness in a fractured world.

He is a founder and senior partner of the Center for Courage and Renewal, senior associate of the American Association for Higher Education, and senior advisor to the Fetzer Institute.

    "Discover your Real Inner Self"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    A remarkable study on how we disguise our real self. It provides techniques on how to unmask and bring our true selves to the surface. I read this on Kindle and just had to listen again on audible.


    Any additional comments?

    I was not pleased with the person reading the book. The individual seemed to portray a condescending tone. Maybe just my own personal perception and not what others will feel. The book and content are fabulous and very much worth the listen.

    "Learning about creating group dynamics"

    As usual Parker Palmer has captured the essence of the concept of working in collaboration with people from all professions. As a teacher I value his ideas a basis for working and interacting with graduate education students who in turn use these same ideas with their high school students. His humble and powerful words play like a video in that one can picture how people are interacting and relating to one another which helps one understand the strategies that can be used to capture the essence of his "Circle of Truth". A must read for anyone interested in learning more about group dynamics.
