The world we have created is breaking our hearts. From family life to public policy, and the workplace to the environment, our cultural preoccupation with prosperity and productivity has left precious little room for care and compassion.
Susan Skog warns that this is our reality, if we so choose. But a growing number of individuals are rejecting the norm and opting instead for a more humane, life-affirming existence. Skog calls them "heart activists," and she shares their uplifting stories in her newest book, Radical Acts of Love.
A prescriptive guide for softening our hearts and extending ourselves to others, Radical Acts of Love is at once inspiring and instructive. Skog takes an important step beyond providing social commentary about the lack of compassion in our cultural institutions. She offers solutions.
Key features and benefits:
- Offers immediately useful and applicable information about learning to live with greater compassion.
- Presents examples of everyday individuals, physicians, scientists, policymakers, teachers, business executives-who choose to live as "heart activists."
- Provides thoughtful commentary on the transformative power of compassion in medicine, business, science, and public policy.
