Description - Ordinary People as Monks and Mystics by Marsha Sinetar
"Ordinary People as Monks and Mystics" presents an outline of "wholesome rebellion." It explores key motifs of positive protest as "ordinary," self-actualizing adults describe what motivates their quiet, responsible revolt. "Here we find mature men and women refusing heartless roles in what seem practical ways..." These "monks" and "mystics" are surrendering their socially programmed selves to the overarching...law of their being...This means, honoring their authentic selves." - From the Preface. "Ordinary People as Monks and Mystics" will assist the reader to live a positive life through coming to know oneself and ones place in creation better. It shows how ordinary people can and do inspire others into healthier, more mature choices and behaviors.

Author Biography - Marsha Sinetar
Pioneering educator Marsha Sinetar's books close the seeming gap between the material and spiritual. Her body of work is growing, yet also time-tested. Her "crossover" classics, like Don't Call Me Old, I'm Just Awakening and Elegant Choices, Healing Choices, are increasingly studied in interfaith, inter-generational settings, world-wide: church, corporate, academic, health care and counseling. She currently lives in the Pacific Northwest, and is dedicated to showing how the contemplative tradition serves the progression and diverse expressions of a dynamic spiritual wholeness.
