9780142196069: The Spiritual Activist: Practices to Transform Your Life, Your Work, and Your World (Compass)

Burnout is a risk for social workers, teachers, non-profit administrators, volunteers, trainers, artists, and anyone who is trying to make a difference in their world. Claudia Horwitz, who has more than fifteen years of experience working for social justice, believes that faith and spiritual practice play a vital role in the ongoing struggle for change.

The Spiritual Activist is a practical guide to individual and social transformation through spirituality and faith. It will help you to make opportunities to slow down, to build stronger relationships at home and at work, and to embrace the world around you. Horwitz shows you how to use reflection, ritual, silence, movement, and the happenings of daily life to help you find unity between your inner journeys and outer commitments. Each chapter contains:

* easy activities to help you reconnect with your core values, beliefs, and sources of strength
* questions for reflection
* resources
* stories from socially conscious leaders discussing their own spiritual life and practices

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
