About the Author:

Claudia Horwitz is the founder of stone circlesİ , an organization that helps individuals and organizations integrate spiritual practice, reflection, and faith into the work of social change. She is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania and received a master's degree in public policy from Duke University.

From Library Journal:

Many books provide spiritual guidance, and many others promote social action. Horwitz's book is at the intersection of the two in emphasizing that the spiritual life gives grounding and depth to the various helping activities in which a person might be involved. With a master's degree in public policy from Duke, Horwitz is the founder of stone circles, an organization that integrates faith, spiritual practice, and social justice. Her spiritual practice draws from various religious traditions, including Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Judaism, Native American religions, and Wicca. Essays by a variety of spiritual activists appear throughout the book, as do informational sidebars. This book should prove interesting and helpful to different audiences and is appropriate for a wide variety of collections. John Moryl, Yeshiva Univ. Lib., New York
