Description
Jennifer Browdy PhD coined the term "purposeful memoir" to describe the contemplative process of looking backward in order to understand the present more fully, necessary inner work for all who wish to change the world for the better. In this lyrical, hard-hitting memoir, one American woman's journey is set against the larger landscape of political upheaval, global climate disruption, and the recovery of our primary connection to the Earth. In telling the story of a generation who "forgot" how important the health of our planet is to our personal and collective health and well-being, Jennifer Browdy calls on readers to begin the process of transformation at the intersection of the personal, political and planetary. "This beautifully written and moving memoir of a woman's search to find her authentic self, buried beneath decades of social conditioning and academic prejudice…offers hope, inspiration and support to all those who, aware of disaster staring us in the face, are searching for courage and insight into how to respond. A timely and most valuable contribution to the greatest challenge of our times. --Anne Baring, author of The Dream of the Cosmos: A Quest for the Soul
