Philip Shepherd proposes a bold thesis with his new book Radical Wholeness: as a culture—and so too as individuals—we have become whole-blind. This is the core of a disorder that fragments our lives and is unravelling the ecosystems on which we depend. When we struggle to feel the wholeness of the self or of the present, we can only operate in a world of bits and pieces – and that affects everything we see and do. We feel anxious and disconnected from reality, because its nature is inseparable from its wholeness: to be desensitized to wholeness is to be desensitized to reality. In this wide-ranging talk, Philip brings to life the different world we could create by re-sensitizing ourselves to the wholeness in which we abide. More crucially, he provides practical ways to help you do that, and newly discover the body, the present, and the resonance of your personal life.
This is a Pay What You Can talk (suggested donation $10 at the door) and Q&A, open to the public, based on Philip Shepherd’s new book, Radical Wholeness, with a Foreword by Jeff Brown.
Radical Wholeness has been praised by some of the foremost pioneers of our time:
“Radical Wholeness is a practical blueprint for embodying information in the service of human welfare and survival. Our future depends on the vision Philip Shepherd powerfully and eloquently presents in Radical Wholeness.”
—Larry Dossey, MD, Author of One Mind: How Our Individual Mind Is Part of a Greater Consciousness and Why It Matters
“In this book, Shepherd has provided us with an extraordinary tool kit that tenderly and skillfully integrates mind, body, and soul with all life in the universe. If you long to reconnect with your deeper self, other living beings, and the Earth, you must read this book.”
—Carolyn Baker, PhD, Co-author with Andrew Harvey of Return to Joy and author of Love in the Age of Ecological Apocalypse: Cultivating the Relationships We Need to Thrive
“Reading Radical Wholeness offers us real hope, the kind of hope that sees a way out of the quagmire of living in a unsustainable way in our own lives and our shared world. If there was ever a time for this book—this is it! Read it. Breathe it in. Let it change how you see and live and love your life and the world.”
—Oriah “Mountain Dreamer” House, Author of The Invitation
