We all yearn for a life that is whole—where “soul and role” are aligned and our innermost wisdom guides us in our actions. Perhaps no one has explored this topic more deeply than bestselling author and distinguished educator Parker J. Palmer.

Now you can experience his inspiring and transformative teachings on An Undivided Life. Infused with compassionate intelligence, this landmark program will encourage and deepen your reflections about what it means to live “a life divided no more.”

Course objectives:

  • Describe what it means to live an undivided life
  • Define "paradox"
  • Discern between a true community and a false community
  • Discuss what the “true self” is

In this five-hour journey, Palmer shares some of his most personal lessons and profound insights gained from a lifetime of faithful inquiry. Join him for an open and honest conversation that explores:

  • The power of paradox to help us find meaning in the darkness and light of life’s experiences
  • How to live creatively in “the tragic gap”—the space between hard realities and what we know to be possible
  • “Hearing each other into speech”—a soul-honoring way of deepening our relationships
  • How understanding our inner dynamics can help us make choices that are life-giving for ourselves and others

"My experience—from the depths of depression to the heights of joy—has taught me that the path toward wholeness takes patience and passion,” teaches Parker Palmer. With An Undivided Life, you will receive his timeless wisdom and guidance to help you discern, trust, and follow your authentic self at home, in your work, and in the world.

Listening to the wisdom he shares has been one of the most profound and heartwarming experiences I've ever felt! Tami is also so completely balanced and delicate to the energies of those she interviews. What a treasure Sounds True has been for me. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Excellent. A+. I bought this CD 2 yrs ago. And listened again for the nth time on my iPod. In light of Robin Williams' suicide, I needed to hear this today to continue to live comfortably in the crazy mixed up world. Thank you for this interview Tami!

It was an eye opening program on so many levels. I love Parker's honest approach to foster an authentic life, his thoughtful explorations about so many different complexities, and I embrace the idea of a wild life of the soul. I am so happy that I found this program, and thank Sounds True for introducing me to such a marvelous thinker.

I really appreciate Tami's interview with Parker. He shared strategies, perspectives and personal stories about the challenges of living a life where the outer life has continuity with the inner life. In other words, he spoke about how to manifest what one holds most dear and what the soul needs to be nourished. He has a kind, compassionate voice and it was easy to listen him answer Tami as she "threw one more log onto the fire" to keep the conversation burning!
