Experience Henri Nouwen´s fullness of life spirituality with this new course presented by his official biographer. Henri Nouwen (1932-1996) was one of the most popular and influential spiritual thinkers of the 20th century. Born in the Netherlands, Nouwen was ordained as a Catholic priest and trained as a psychologist. He spent much of his life in America, where he ministered and taught throughout the continent. His profound spiritual works, such as The Return of the Prodigal Son and Life of the Beloved, develop such compelling concepts as the restless searching of the heart and the agony of being human. This course is presented by Dr. Michael W. Higgins, the coauthor of Genius Born of Anguish: The Life and Legacy of Henri Nouwen. Through 12 masterful lectures, you will examine the context of Nouwen´s most important works, the evolution of his ideas, and the struggles of his spirit. You will also explore his life, which will help you understand the autobiographical nature of his works. Nouwen was a great teacher, and over the course of his life he was a popular professor at Notre Dame, Yale, and Harvard. He was also an innovative psychologist who understood the deep connection between spirituality and psychology. Henri Nouwen developed a spirituality for the wounded, but within it he also presents us with genuine joy, boundless energy, and ultimately hope. You are invited to meet and come to know Nouwen through this powerful course. Photo of Henri Nouwen by Frank Hamilton. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Prof. Michael W. Higgins PhD.

This book confronts the failings of current global economics to deliver the equity, sustainability and community empowerment which humanity now needs to handle a troubled future. The volume proposes an economy built from our society, not the other way around. The Kyoto Manifesto was built, layer by layer, over a period of 4 years, based on broad-ranging international symposia held in Kyoto between 2014 and 2017, hosted by the Center for the Creative Economy, Doshisha University. Not stopping at theory and untested ideas however, the Manifesto proposes practical action that will make a difference, including in the problematic technological and ecological context of humanitys immediate and long-term future. The book is unique and innovative for it moves adventurously across very broad territory. The Manifesto draws from world philosophic arguments, including, specifically, a critique of liberalism, further, exploring sociology, cultural anthropology, politics, primatology and early humanity, even quantum physics. Argument is set within mainstream post-1972 economics and political economics as well as direct practical experience working to empower disadvantaged communities through the United Nations. Most importantly, the books analysis is deeply informed by the practice of searching for what is sacred, the ultimate essence of our humanity, what we can be as a human race-empowered, fulfilled individuals, deeply sharing and caring for each other across our separate cultures and lives. Stomu Yamashtas On Zen performances, set the context for the Symposia, bringing different religions and cultures together across their dividing boundaries into a coherent search for peace and harmony through sacred music. Informed by alternate cultural paradigms for economics, the book probes deeply into philosophies and practices that already exist within Eastern and Western societies, and offer lessons for our future. The result is an economics that stresses harmony with nature, and balance in social relations. It places an emphasis on community-human sharing and trust-as a platform for our future, not separate from the global economy but integrated into its very foundations. This is a book for all who care: a plan for our sustainable future built from the best of what our humanity is and can offer.
Venture into the world of eastern theology with a conventional Christian who is challenged by the fear and scepticism often associated with yoga and meditation. Share with her a deeper understanding about these practices and how they can strengthen your relationship with God. Become part of a new movement of harmony in diversity that the world so desperately needs. Most importantly, come to know yourself as Teilhard de Chardin saw us - as spiritual beings having a human experience, not human beings having a spiritual experience. Dear River is a powerful, poignant book written by a soul-searching woman as a gift to her young son. It speaks volumes on her pursuit of truth, her spiritual awakening, and brings to light new ideas on how to live life to the fullest. It is written from a very personal perspective which lends it a certain fresh resonance that is not often common in other spiritual books. It offers a new viewpoint on Christianity, Spirituality, God, and our divine purpose here on earth. The author gently pushes you to question your life and your ideals for the better, as she did along her incredible journey. If you have ever wondered about life´s bigger picture you should definitely read this book! (Tanya Hunt, Editor.) Dear Riveris an auto-biography, written by a Zimbabwean girl who grew up in Africa.

I never liked jazz music because jazz music doesn´t resolve. . . . I used to not like God because God didn´t resolve. But that was before any of this happened. In Donald Miller´s early years, he was vaguely familiar with a distant God. But when he came to know Jesus Christ, he pursued the Christian life with great zeal. Within a few years he had a successful ministry that ultimately left him feeling empty, burned out, and, once again, far away from God. In this intimate, soul-searching account, Miller describes his remarkable journey back to a culturally relevant, infinitely loving God. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Scott Brick.
