The 2019 Independent Publisher Book Awards have been announced and On the Brink of Everything: Grace, Gravity & Getting Old, by Parker J. Palmer (Berrett-Koehler Publishers) has received the Gold Medal Award in the category of Aging/Death & Dying. Congratulations to Parker and to Berrett-Koehler!!
Shalem is pleased to award their 2019 Contemplative Voices Award to Carrie Newcomer, performer, recording artist, educator and “prairie mystic.”
Shalem's Contemplative Voices Award was created to honor those individuals who have made significant contributions to contemplative understanding, living and leadership and whose witness helps others live from the divine wellspring of compassion, strength, and authentic vision.
This is an album about beginnings and endings, love and grief, being in process, miracles and possibility, and living in the kind of times that ask us to be better people than we ever thought we would need to be.
The November-December, 2018 issue of Spirituality & Health celebrates the magazine’s 20th anniversary. They surprised us by including our Growing Edge partnership on their list of 10 SPIRITUAL LEADERS FOR THE NEXT TWENTY YEARS who are “responsive to today’s yearnings, forging new pathways, and elevating the conversation.”
Looking for a larger sense of what we mean by “the growing edge?” We co-authored a column on that subject for Krista Tippett’s On Being website
On The Brink of Everything: Grace, Gravity & Getting Old—”a brave and beautiful book on aging”—made four National Bestseller lists within three weeks of publication!
