Awakening the Heart of the Beloved Community is a compelling collection of the voices of the beloved community. The narratives of each writer, which includes Rev. Michael Bernard Beckwith and Andrew Harvey, are masterfully woven together in a book that will take you higher, drop you down and then lift you gently and lovingly and land you right in your heart – the center of the continuing evolution of the beloved community that is the foundation for a sustainable future for generations to come.
