From the Back Cover:

At a time when many of us seek ways of working and living thatare more resonant with our souls, A Hidden Wholeness offers insightinto our condition and guidance for finding what weseek–within ourselves and with each other.

"The soul is generous: it takes in the needs of the world. Thesoul is wise: it suffers without shutting down. The soul ishopeful: it engages the world in ways that keep opening our hearts.The soul is creative: it finds its way between realities that mightdefeat us and fantasies that are mere escapes. All we need to do isto bring down the wall that separates us from our own souls anddeprives the world of the soul's regenerative powers."
From A Hidden Wholeness
