Product description

To see what life would be like if your answers are 'Yes!' then the voices of these twelve Quakers will speak to you. For they follow a way that embraces maximum spirituality with minimum religion. Their spiritual path is as simple, radical and contemporary as it was when it began over 350 years ago. Having guarded probably the best kept spiritual secret in the world, because of their refusal to proselytise, Quakers now feel, in the face of climate change and religious extremism, this is the time to speak out and share a way that is tolerant, liberal and compassionate: a way that makes life meaningful, happy and helps to heal the world.

Author information

The "voices" of this book belong to Quakers who for the past six years have been running a series of open meetings for spiritual seekers, and have spoken from their own experience on the topics covered by this book. All are well known in Quaker circles and beyond. Jennifer Kavanagh has published two previous books, most recently The World is our Cloister, and has spoken about her faith on radio and television.
