Find meaning, wholeness, and spiritual depth with this field guide to the inner life that explores and integrates four essential virtues: Presence, Heart, Wisdom, and Creation.

In a world with greater knowledge, more advanced technology, and more groundbreaking innovation than ever at our fingertips, we are still looking to find our way. We are still searching for that essential insight on how to lead a really good life.

By drawing from across tradition and time, from neuroscience to ancient wisdom, Tobin Hart reveals that we all possess four essential virtues—Presence, Heart, Wisdom, Creation—that help us to build, balance, and integrate our psychological and spiritual life on earth. While these virtues may be universal, the way they live in each of us is unique. With the Spiritual Assessment Matrix (SAM) and expert practices and tools, this highly accessible, thought-provoking guide shows us how to grow and activate these powers from the inside out. When in balance, these four virtues serve as a field guide to the inner life, bringing you heart and wisdom as well as helping you recognize beauty, rekindle awe, and find your own voice.

Review:

"Rarely has there been a book of such exquisite wisdom, such potent truth about the nature and practice of virtue." (Jean Houston author of The Wizard of Us)

"Through personal insights, storytelling, and an inspiring presentation of wisdom and knowledge attained by respected thinkers, spiritual leaders, and scientists, Tobin Hart provides guidance for living life from a deeply integrated and authentic place within." (Michael A. Singer author of The Untethered Soul)

"This remarkable book is a treasured gift for teachers, therapists, counselors and all those who wish to grow the soul." (Carolyn Toben author of Recovering a Sense of the Sacred and Natural World)

"This is a gem of a book. Drawing on his own rich life experiences, neuroscience, and ancient wisdom traditions, Tobin Hart explores how we can cultivate capacities that allow us to be deeply connected to ourselves, to each other, and to the world." (Pamela Seigle, PhD, executive director of Courage & Renewal Northeast)

"There is a new awakening to the potential of spiritual growth and the flowering of human society that it can bring. In this beautifully written book, Tobin Hart illuminates that path, skillfully applying his scholarship, experience, and insights to provide a vivid roadmap for the spiritual seeker.” (Peter Laurence, EdD, director of Education as Transformation Project at Wellesley College)

“A work of wide learning and deep reflection, The Four Virtues eloquently teaches what is most important to learn: the art of living a meaningful life.” (Pir Zia Inayat-Khan, PhD, spiritual leader of Sufi Order International and author of Aracen Chivalry)

“In this remarkable book, Tobin Hart applies ancient wisdom to the information age. Not only has he given his readers a psycho-spiritual matrix for internal growth but has also provided a road-map for finding their way through an external world of increasing complexity. At the very least, The Four Virtues is a fascinating document; at the very most it will change the lives of many those who read it and practice its exercises.” (Stanley Krippner, PhD, coauthor of Personal Mythology)

“With this book, Tobin Hart is doing something audacious: offering us a guide to our deepest, most meaningful life while, in his writing, embodying the virtues he identifies as key....This is a book to be savored. I’ll be reading sections of it over and over.” (Richard Schwartz, PhD, president of the Center for Self Leadership and developer of the Internal Family Systems model of psychotherapy)

"This is a very creative, helpful, and joyful book whose warmth and presence reflects unique and valuable insights into the human condition. Highly recommended!” (Lee Irwin, PhD, professor of religious studies, College of Charleston)

“This miraculous book by Tobin Hart is a doorway into exploring one’s inner life. This book provides the reader with a welcome roadmap for discovering what may be just below the surface but is often obscured by the busyness of our everyday existence. By traveling the path of The Four Virtues and using the practical strategies provided, Dr. Hart opens up a world for the reader to explore avenues for personal growth and transformation.” (Mark T. Greenberg, PhD, Bennett Chair of Prevention Research, Pennsylvania State University)
