Do No Harm: Mindful Engagement for a World in Crisis
The collective trauma of a nation, a community, a family, a child, or a devastating environmental disaster asks us to show up in the best way we can, in a way that promotes peace and reconciliation, healing, transformation, and does no harm – or at least not make things worse.
There is growing concern about the state of the world and how we may navigate and at the very least, mitigate complex global challenges. People are searching for guidance and ways to create effective and sustainable change.
In this groundbreaking new book, Dr. Wendy Wood and Dr. Thaïs Mazur share the stories of seventeen people who are active in the fields of social and environmental justice, health, education, and peace and reconciliation. These stories reflect the qualities they have found to be critical in their work, revealing their thinking as to the nature of our collective social and environmental responsibility. It calls upon the reader to search deeply within about how his or her own experiences might be shaped by these qualities of meaningful engagement and altruism, thus asking the profound question: What is truly required to work in ways that Do No Harm?
