It was just a year ago that Jean and I announced the release of our first book, Now That I’m Here, What Should I Be Doing? —Discover Life’s Purpose. We are so grateful for all of your support and positive feedback about the book!
Today I have another special announcement….the completion of a true labor of love:
The release of our second book, TRANSFORMED: How to Make the Decisions That Change Your Life, which is now available on Amazon and in bookstores.
In this new book, we introduce a transformative decision-making process—compassionate consultation—for individuals, couples, families, organizations, communities and institutions that:
*Engages the whole human being—intellectually, spiritually, socially and emotionally;
*Improves relationships at all levels;
*Calls forth latent qualities and capacities in its practitioners;
*Fosters true interpenetration of diverse thoughts;
*Dramatically deepens understanding;
*Yields creative, robust decisions that rise above partisan and ideological bickering; and
*Results in justice and unity.
For those of you who have benefited from our facilitation services over the years, this book provides the full story behind the processes that have made a difference for you and your organizations.
For those of you who read our first book (about the ultimate purposes of life and the spiritual, intellectual, emotional and social growth patterns designed into life), you will recall that we briefly introduced a revolutionary decision-making process that aligned with these purposes and patterns. We also promised a full exploration of this decision-making process in our next book. Our second book just released is that sequel to the first book.
When you think about it, decisions large and small determine the course and quality of life—for an individual, a couple, a family, an organization, a community, a country, and the world. Today, we are experiencing a decision-making crisis. Increasing complexities and accelerating changes in life are outpacing our traditional decision-making resources. TRANSFORMED: How to Make the Decisions That Change Your Life introduces the decision-making remedy to this dilemma—compassionate consultation.
The release of these two books marks the completion of the first phase of efforts to share our learning about the purposes of life, and making decisions and taking action in alignment with them. Now on to the next phase of this journey: sharing, demonstrating and teaching the concepts and practices in these books with all of you through blogging, workshops and other shared learning spaces! Stay tuned for more information to come regarding these additional resources.
For now, Jean and I are so excited to share this second book with you! We are grateful to be connected with you.
