Quakers have long been respected for their simplicity, integrity, truthfulness, non violence and undestanding of the need for silence. This inspirational little book explores Quaker values and shows how - even if we are not members of the Society of Friends - we can bring Quaker practices and ideals into our everyday lives and relationships with others. Including a fascinating chapter on how to use the tools of Quakerism in a business context, there is also much helpful advice on how to slow down, still the mind and 'let the heart create for us'.

UK Kirkus Review »
Written by someone who declares himself 'a Buddhist and a Quaker', this is an examination of some of the Quaker practices which have been passed down over 300 years. The book looks at the area of 'practical mysticism', describing a belief system which begins with finding one's own divine light and encompasses simplicity, everyday spirituality and a listening approach. As well as considering Quaker history and applying it to contemporary life, the author lists 'Advices and Queries', guidelines which originate from a set of questions read out at meetings. For anyone seeking a modern approach to this often misunderstood tradition, this book provides a lucid and simply written starting point. (Kirkus UK)
