Heart of Oneness review

This reflective ‘little book of connection’ enables readers to stand back from the violent images portrayed on our screens every day and the realisation that our divided world is full of poverty, inequality and injustice. And the same time, heroic acts of altruism are also going on, reflecting the paradoxical nature of the human condition and our difficulties in living together. The author highlights examples of mutuality and interconnectedness from science, psychology and religion – what she calls the oneness at the heart of existence – and gives guidance on how we can enact a way of life consistent with these insights. Ultimately, the mystic experiences a unity of subject and object, but it is still a challenge to live out this insight in everyday life. (David Lorimer, Scientific and Medical network)
