Whole Life's Work by Lewis Richmond

Book Description

"Work is not just a job. It is the sum of all our purposeful activities. Seen in this light, work is our whole life." -- from A Whole Life's Work What is work in the truest sense of the word? For Buddhist priest and acclaimed author Lewis Richmond, work is more than just having a job, or a means to a profitable end. It is the key to cultivating inner life and contributing to the developing consciousness of all humanity. In this companion to his national bestseller, Work as a Spiritual Practice, Richmond applies his Buddhist understanding to address what is perhaps one of the primary struggles of contemporary Western life: how to achieve a healthy balance between professional ambition and personal happiness. Here he adapts Buddhist categories of spiritual virtue in defining eight important modes of work the Earner, the Hobbyist, the Creator, the Monk, the Helper, the Parent, the Learner, and the Elder along with their corresponding eight modes of inner work: Precepts, Vitality, Patience, Calm, Equanimity, Giving, Humility, and Wisdom. How to internalize these modes of work, and lead a more meaningful and spiritual life, is what this groundbreaking guidebook is all about. Whether we are professionals, artists, hobbyists, parents, students, or spiritual leaders, A Whole Life's Work can teach us how to reconcile our outer livelihood with our inner lives...and reap the benefits of hard work well done.
