Drawing on his own journey through darkness and light, Parker Palmer explores the gap between "the life I am living and the life that wants to live in me." With candor and gentle humor, he invites readers to listen to the wisdom of their own experience and follow its leadings toward a sense of purpose.
Using stories from his own life and the lives of others who have made a difference, Palmer raises the urgent question, "Is the life I am living my own?" He writes encouragingly about the quest for congruence between our inner and outer worlds: "Before you tell your life what you intend to do with it, listen for what it intends to do with you."
Let Your Life Speak offers wisdom for all who seek the true calling of their lives.
