9781845901271: The Salmon of Knowledge: Stories for Work, Life, the Dark Shadow and Oneself

There are over 140 stories in this collection, from ancient to contemporary, from all points of the compass and organized by theme. The stories invite us to wake up, stop taking ourselves so damned seriously, look at the world from perspectives other than our own, and recognize that only by changing ourselves can we reconnect with what is truly important in life.

Review:

A wake up call, an opportunity to stop, consider, and evaluate how we can truly be delivered through a series of insightful, timeless and often humorous stories, anecdotes and observations. A compelling read as a coaching, leadership development or personal development aide. --Richard Coulthwaite, Finance Director, Underwriting Brit Insurance

I loved this book as it is full of wisdom. It brought me joy, and quiet illumination. May it lighten your way as well. --Adrian Machon, Executive & Leadership Development, GlaxoSmithKline

.Another fabulous collection of short stories that anybody who is serious about transforming their lives, workplaces, families, communities or even the world should not be without --Keith Bellamy, Independent Futurist

Book Description Crown House Publishing, United Kingdom, 2009. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This is a collection of stories, analogies and metaphors that invite us to pause and consider what is really important in our lives, our work, and ourselves. They challenge us to re-connect the different parts of our lives, recognise how easy it is to get distracted by contemporary culture and the pace of modern life, and to pay attention to whatever deeper parts of ourselves seek expression.The stories invite us to slow down, take more time to reflect, experience the world from wider perspectives, and make wiser and more sustainable choices. They invite us to put ourselves squarely in the centre of the on-going story that is our life, to take greater responsibility for connecting to what serves us, others, and the wider context, and to find a greater variety of ways to express ourselves fully through our life, our work, and everything we can be.Varied and wide ranging the stories are pragmatic, some spiritual, some light-hearted, some provocative, some work related, while others still are closer to home. All of them challenge the reader to consider the life they are currently living, and ways they could deepen and enhance it for themselves, and others in a wide variety of applications and contexts.
