Overview

Quakerism has been a source of inspiration and a fountain of ideas on how to live for over 300 years. Combining spirituality with the practical life, its insights have universal appeals which are particularly relevant to today's world. Quakers value inner peace and tranquility very highly and believe there is 'that of God' within us all - and that we can all have access to it. They also develop a compassionate determination to do something about the suffering of the world - and have a deep commitment to peace and non-violence.

Listening to the Light gives a fascinating insight into the Quaker experience of practical mysticism but, much more than that, it shows why so many ordinary people have felt so inspired by this enduring faith - and how we, too, can incorporate the very best of its ideas and practices into our lives. These include:

· Finding our own Light - the Divine inside us
· Realizing the everyday is spiritual
· Simplifying our lives - and caring for the planet
· Bringing a sense of commitment and integrity to our actions
· Learning to listen - and testing the Quaker approach in our working lives

Accessible and full of wisdom, this is a book to return to again and again when we need to remind ourselves there is a better way to live - and how to do it. -
