The Death, The Birth, The Hope…

 “If God created a new curriculum for the human race—one that might insure our continued place on this planet—I think he would make The Hope: A Guide to Sacred Activism required reading.” —Elizabeth Lesser, author of Broken Open

 In The Hope, Andrew Harvey passionately offers not only a guide to discovering your divine purpose but also the blueprint for a better world. A global initiative designed to save the world from its downward spiral of greed, pain, and self-destruction, the book is based on Harvey’s seven laws of Sacred Activism, which include Sacred Practice (both “warm” and “cool” practices, and including bodywork), Surrendering to the Divine, Constant Humble Shadow work (he emphasizes this throughout the book), the Alchemy of Anger, Recognizing and Protecting Ourselves from Evil, Joy, and Networks of Grace.

Each law, in its own unique way, promotes love above all other impulses. Sacred Activism is about finding gratitude, forgiveness, and compassion; it is about opening yourself up to the kindness within you, letting go of pain, and making a conscious choice to help heal the world.

It is essential that sacred activists, while pursuing their individual spiritual paths and embracing their own specific kinds of service, learn to work together and to form empowering and encouraging “networks of grace”—beings of like heart brought together by passion, skill and serendipity to pool energies, triumphs, griefs, hopes and resources of all kinds. When people of like mind and heart gather together, sometimes miraculously powerful synergy can result.

[I see] a network of “imaginal” cells, individual cells of between six to twelve people, praying and meditating together and inspiring each other and acting together on causes or local or international problems of their own choice…

It is my prayer that this book and the vision of sacred activism it embodies will inspire the spread of inter-linked cells of “Networks of Grace” all over North America and the world. The time has come, in Teilhard de Chardin’s words, to “harness the energies of love, and so for the second time in the history of humanity discover fire.”

“Sacred Activism evolves what it truly means to be an activist in today’s world and empowers us to model the change we seek. It’s helped me bridge my activism and spiritual life like no other tool.” —David Tucker, Executive Director, Pachamama Alliance

 

 

 

 

 

Publisher’s Description: 

Every age has its teachers, who keep the eternal truths alive for all of us, writes Marianne Williamson, the best-selling author of The Age of Miracles. In the case of Andrew Harvey, the light he sheds is like a meteor burst across the inner sky.

In The Hope, Andrew Harvey offers not only a guide to discovering your divine purpose but also the blueprint for a better world. It consists of the necessary elements that can inspire greatness in each of us. Based on Harveys concepts of Sacred Activism, a global initiative designed to save the world from its downward spiral of greed, pain, and self-destruction, the book is an enlightening text that reflects our world today, while in turn, shapes our future.

There are seven laws of Sacred Activism that have the potential to transform our world. Each law, in its own unique way, promotes love above all other impulses. Sacred Activism is about finding gratitude, forgiveness, and compassion; it is about opening yourself up to the kindness within you, letting go of pain, and making a conscious choice to help heal the world.

Learn how to incorporate a spiritual practice into your life, transform anger into positive energy, and take part in a global community. Reclaim a world that for too long has been driven by selfishness and hatred. Discover the infinite joy of giving. Turn away from everything you have been and done and believed, and dive into the consciousness of a divine love that embraces all beings. While the future may appear bleak, The Hope provides practical advice to all those who want positive change.

 

The Hope is a simple yet compelling guide to overcoming current global challenges.
