Wholeness Ethics for Prisoners and Those Who Care About Them
Troy K Chapman
Men and women in prison are seen by society as problems and burdens. This book begins with a different premise: that you can be a solution, not only in the world but in your own life as well. It's about a way of living called wholeness ethics and it's based on the simple truth that we find our own wholeness only in right relationship with the world.
From the perspective of his 30 years behind bars, author Troy Chapman offers a roadmap for living this truth and moving toward soundness, well-being and the realization of one's larger purpose. Distilling experience to four essential relationships - with yourself, others, the transcendent and nature - Chapman shows how to consider each in the light of ethical thinking and restore wholeness to each one.
With down-to-earth examples and language, compassion and good humor, this book will help you "step up" to your true purpose, transform your life and your relationships, and help create a better world in the process.
