"Donald Rothberg is a remarkably talented teacher whose writing, like his teaching style, is interesting, engaging, upbeat, and—most importantly—hopeful. This is the authoritative map describing the connection between wisdom and social action, and it does so clearly, simply, nonacademically, and entertainingly. The specific practices it offers inspire confidence that transforming ourselves and the world is a possibility-which is the best message in the world in times like these."
—Sylvia Boorstein, author of It's Easier Than You Think: The Buddhist Way to Happiness
"At a moment when our world desperately needs an integration of spiritual wisdom and social action, Donald Rothberg points the way to a new synthesis—of great interest to people in all faith communities and to many who have previously distanced themselves from spiritual life in order to pursue social change."—Rabbi Michael Lerner, author of The Left Hand of God: Taking Back our Country from the Religious Right
"I know of no one who better combines scholarship in this field with teaching experience and ontheground activism. Rothberg's words ring with an unmistakable authenticity." —Joanna Macy, author of Coming Back to Life: Practices to Reconnect Our Lives, Our World
