Chapter 1: The Primacy of Soul

What is the soul? How do we find it? Renowned author, speaker and activist Parker J. Palmer reflects on these questions. "'Soul' is a word which must be held lightly because it points toward a mystery, a mystery for which nobody has the true name. Every tradition has a different name for it... What we call it doesn't matter so much, but that we call it something matters a lot."

This video is part of a series included in “A Hidden Wholeness Hub” that invites us into deeper contemplation of the dynamic between our inner lives and our outer bearing in the world. This video series is referenced in Parker Palmer’s book A Hidden Wholeness: The Journey Toward An Undivided Life. Expanding on the principles and practices developed by Parker J. Palmer and the Center for Courage & Renewal, these videos offer insight and guidance for all who seek to map an inner journey toward wholeness, to live a more authentic, meaningful and resilient life.
