The Occupy Wall Street movement and protest movements around the world are evidence of a new era of intergenerational activists seeking deeper spiritual meaning in their quest for peace and justice. This book is a call to action for a new era of spirituality-infused activism. Authors Adam Bucko and Matthew Fox encourage us to use our talents in service of compassion and justice and to move beyond our broken systems - economic, political, educational, and religious - discovering a spirituality that not only helps us to get along, but also encourages us to re-evaluate our traditions, transforming them and in the process building a more sacred and just world.show more
