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.

Breathtaking! Review by Jane

This is one of the most extraordinary interviews I've ever heard. Every word is a gem. Parker Palmer's journey into his own soul and his incredible ability to articulate the meaning and purpose of that journey gives voice to those of us on a similar path without the words to tell others why.

Deep wisdom, courage and compassion unfolding Review by Sarah D from Blighty

These five CDs are amongst the most precious things I own. Parker J Palmer is a rare soul who shares his life experience generously and with wonderful wit and warmth in this collection. He ranges widely in terms of his conversation but in truth he never strays too far from the topics which I believe are closest to his heart: what it is, and what it takes, to be a truly authentic human being, and how best to put into service the wisdom and compassion which flow from this state. Tami Simon is a sensitive and intelligent questionner, and the resulting conversation is rich, humane and enlightening.

Deep honesty and wisdom rooted in experience Review by Richelle

Before this program, I'd never heard anyone speak so authentically and articulately about the inner experience of depression. The intensely painful and deadening lostness of it is too often dismissed by other practitioners who offer little more than platitudes. His honesty and wisdom about both the highs and the lows of the authentic life, and explanation of depression as a guidepost that we've gone off the path is absolutely refreshing and rings with deep truth.

Review for An Undivided Life Review by JannaV

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!

Review for An Undivided Life Review by Diana

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!

Review for An Undivided Life Review by Gabriela

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.

Review for An Undivided Life Review by Tina A

I regret buying this. The monotone rambling bored me intensely. I could not listen to this more than once, as it seemed to deal more with Palmer's depression than any really inspiring pointers to connecting with one's ideal role or vocation.

Review for An Undivided Life Review by LIssa M

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!
