Publisher's Summary

The Path of the Holy Fool summons each of us to become a Holy Fool: one who is accountable, stands for equality and social justice, embraces an ecological vision, and encourages community spirit. 

Lauren Artress, who established the two permanent labyrinths at Grace Cathedral, San Francisco, is a leading force in the Labyrinth Movement. Her new book, The Path of the Holy Fools: How the Labyrinth Ignites Our Visionary Powers, expands upon her earlier work in Walking a Sacred Path: Rediscovering the Labyrinth as a Spiritual Practice. Through the Parsifal story, Artress suggests the labyrinth serves as a grail that is discovered in the invisible, imaginative, in-between world symbolized by the Grail Castle. 

Most importantly this book invites listeners to explore and reflect upon their own uniquely configured imaginations. It is through the imagination that self-reflection and raw experiences of the Holy occur. Once we navigate our imaginative processes without fear, the labyrinth experience ignites our creativity, heals our wounds, and opens our big picture vision that nurtures empathy and gives us eyes to see and ears to hear — even through the sorrows of the pandemic — the call for a life-enhancing future. The labyrinth offers the Holy Fool an unwavering path as we learn to takes risks, create new modalities and find a way to contribute to our evolving world.

Love this Book!

This book is great. but as always it would be much better read by the author.
Who can better place the right inflection and convey the true meaning of the words than the person from who's heart these words were derived.
The narrator did a good job.
very clearly spoken, no noticeable mispronunciations pretty good flow with interconnected ideas in the book.
But she could have used to tone down the pretention in her voice and bring more sincerity and natural flow to match the subject matter.
I've heard that some authors prefer to have others read their story. And some don't have a choice because the rights to the audio book are sold by their publisher without their input in the matter.....As I said before who else but the author could bring the most accurate and heartfelt life to their work being read allowed?
