What you will learn from this inspiring book

Compassion and non-judgment

Compassion and non-judgment

Surely you need to stand up for what is right? So many of the values in our modern world are driving us to destruction. We have to speak out and protest about the harm being done! How can we do that without creating opposition and resistance?

Non-persuasion

Non-persuasion

If you can't persuade people that your way is better, how will people ever change? You've got the research and data to prove you're right. Is there a better way to open up hearts and minds?

Don't be the expert

Don't be the expert

You've invested years of study and effort into this problem. You know what the solutions are. Why are people so resistant? How can we make people listen better?

Move your work into the gift economy

Move your work into the gift economy

Your cause has to be financially sustainable. It makes sense to offer programs, courses and workshops in return for payment, right? Or maybe you could apply for a grant? How else do you fund this work?

Focus on what works best, not problems

Focus on what works best, not problems

How can you make progress if you don't know what the problems and risks are? That's how you make gains - you identify the problems and work out solutions, that's what you're good at. What other strategy could there be?

Perfectly broken and ready to heal

Perfectly broken and ready to heal

Too right the system is broken! We need to fix it. Our enemies are powerful but we can mobilise the masses and win the battles. We can close down that pipeline! Is there any other way to create the future we want?

A word from the author

As activists, we all want to create a better world. After a lifetime of efforts, I realise there is a limit to what I can do personally - there are only so many lives I can touch first hand. So the secret to really making a big difference is the act of inspiring and supporting others to become leaders.

That's why I have placed my new book 'From HERO to HEALER' in the gift economy. I offer it freely, as a gift to you. There are no string attached - I am not promoting a business and I will not be mailing you with offers for other products or programs. If you want to share my book with others - go ahead!

If you value my work, I invite you to pay a donation in return for my book - just choose one of the paid option in the online shop. You can choose whatever amount feels right to you, starting at $1. If you do accept my book for free, I will write you in about a month and invite you to offer a donation - but you are under no obligation.

My wife Meredith and I are often asked to speak at conferences or to facilitate workshops as part of our 'Hearts in Healthcare' work. We offer those contributions within the gift economy too - we don't quote a fee but simply promise to serve the organisation or event to the best of our ability and then invite a donation. We are profoundly touched by the generosity of the response and we are sometimes paid much more than the fee we might have expected. That enables us to offer our time for free to those who can't afford to pay.

I invite you to write a review of my book. You'll find the Review section at the bottom of each product page in the online shop.

If you'd like to learn more about our work, click on 'About us' or 'News' in the menu at the top of the page.
