Publisher's Summary

A longtime trauma worker, Laura van Dernoot Lipsky offers a deep and empathetic survey of the often-unrecognized toll on those working to make the world a better place. We may feel tired, cynical, numb, or like we can never do enough. These, and other symptoms, affect us individually and collectively, sapping the energy and effectiveness we so desperately need if we are to benefit humankind, other animals, and the planet itself. Through Trauma Stewardship, we are called to meet these challenges in an intentional way - not by becoming overwhelmed but by developing a quality of mindful presence. Joining the wisdom of ancient cultural traditions with modern psychological research, Lipsky offers a variety of simple and profound practices that will allow us to remake ourselves - and ultimately the world.

accents were distracting

the voice alterations for the character profiles distracts from the content. overall, definitely a worthwhile listen.

This is a must read...

for anyone in a helping profession or anyone who feels that they carry the weight of the world. At times, this felt like a kick in the stomach. It knocked the air right out of me and simultaneously gave a breath of fresh air.
