Abstract:

"William Shannon offers hope and answers to all of us who want peace in our personal lives, our relationships, and the world in which we live. He calls us to new and exciting experiences that far surpass the kind of life that is possible at the level of just the superficial. He shows us how a contemplative life, which enables us to experience our oneness with God and in God with one another, inevitably leads to a lifestyle of non-violence and unconditional love. These ideas are the seeds of a peaceful life. It is William Shannon's gift that he can help us to achieve it."--Jacket.
