Description - Listening to the Light by Jim Pym

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'.

Book Reviews - Listening to the Light by Jim Pym

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)
