Book Description

      Lay the American professional on a psychiatrist’s couch and what do you find? Professionals, whatever their training, whatever their income or initials after their name, are caught up in a system where their original dream is buried under a growing pile of paperwork, regulations, restrictions, litigiousness, and negativism.   Our workplaces and the people within them need resuscitation.   This book allows a contemplative pause for the American professional allowing them to see the larger context of the problems facing our workplaces— loss of faith about who we are, why we are, and what we’re doing here.
        This book is intended to be that resuscitation by taking aim at the problems ailing our workplaces from multiple directions.   At heart, this book examines ways we can expand into the fuller possibilities of our profession by exploring the underdeveloped intersection between spiritual contemplation and our roles.  Without instilling spirituality, our current workplaces can easily overtake professionals leaving them disconnected, overextended, and burnt out. The authors suggest ways to transform role-based patterns of relating that have pushed aside compassionate connections to reconnect professionals with the rewards found in relationships with their profession, coworkers, and most importantly with themselves. Once this lost foundation of relationships is reclaimed as central and sacred, the reader is taken beyond the edges of familiar thinking to a larger context for the evolution of change.  This book, presented through inspirational stories, illustrative anecdotes, and spiritual principles, offers a refreshed spiritual context designed to stimulate self-inquiry in the modern-day professional.   This book nurtures the deep, ongoing spiritual commitment each professional must have to their individual personal healing.  This book will teach the modern-day professional how to use the material of their day to jumpstart the deepening of their own personal healing, and the healing of their profession. Once this awareness has been established, our professions become more than a job; they are transformed into a modern spiritual path.
