Why on Earth?

Biography and the Practice of Human Becoming

by Signe Eklund Schaefer

This book explores many aspects of human development today, such as life phases, gender, temperaments, inner development and freedom. Here is a brief excerpt from the back cover:

Life today poses many questions, both in our personal lives and in our participation in nature and the broader culture. We often focus on the outer needs for social, political, technological, or environmental change.

Can we really meet the challenges around us without also attending to our inner life and to our own evolving biography as it reflects and informs the outer world?

 This book starts from the premise that each of our lives expresses uniqueness of spiritual intention within the unfolding of universal rhythms and possibilities.

Can we come to appreciate the learning that our “I” has received through heredity, ethnicity, schooling, and gender without losing a sense of our true individuality?

Why on Earth? invites us to explore our own meaning-filled life journey, to bring conscious attention to how we go our path, so that we may more freely perceive our possibilities and our responsibilities along the way of our personal and shared becoming.
