Living a Gentle, Passionate Life by Robert J. Wicks

Book Description

Now in paperback Bob Wicks again delivers his gentle healing philosophy through poignant, humorous stories that will warm the heart. With a refreshing sense of simplicity, Wicks invites readers to seek perspective and develop a strong inner life. His work helps move beyond the vague desire to live more peacefully to actually living one's dream: a life that is noble and meaningful, with the sense of joy, hope, and commitment. Wicks shows how to find the curative value of listening to ourselves and to others, how to discover in solitude a "good loneliness," and how to appreciate the gift of now. This gentle, yet realistic approach, shows how the development of one's inner life is intertwined with reaching out to others. This is Wicks' life work; while not autobiographical, the book breathes with the themes he's lived through his distinguished career, most notably the hopeful message of finding spiritual freedom and greater meaning in daily life. The book is perfect for anyone under stressor suffering loss, for spiritual seekers, for ministry professionals, counselors, and for all those in the helping professions.
