Engaged Spirituality: ten lives of contemplation and action

by Janet W Parachin

Engaged Spirituality describes a spiritual life that involves more than quiet contemplation. The ten lives described here demonstrate that the spiritual life can also include the busy, often noisy, activities of protest, writing about and speaking out against injustice, and offering compassionate and loving care to those in need.

The chapter on Thich Nhat Hanh, for example, shows how the study of classic Buddhist teachings empowers him to engage the world in ways that are creative and life-affirming. The life stories of Thich Nhat Hanh, Joanna Macy, Elie Wiesel, Rigoberta Menchú and others, teach and inspire us by applying deep spirituality to social action in ways that move the world towards peace, compassion, justice, and wholeness. Engaged Spirituality offers fresh and valuable insights into what it means to lead a spiritually energized life.
