Chapter 2: The Great Divide

In our frantic, fragmented and often violent world, we can easily become separated from our own souls. What is it that drives "true self" into hiding? What brings us to separate who we really are from the role we play in the so-called "real world"? In this brief video, Parker J. Palmer, renowned author, speaker and activist, speaks about the division between inner and outer life.

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.
