From the dust jacket: "...challenges us to take another journey in self-awareness: to achieve, through the creative experience of community, a new 'connectedness' and wholeness which, in turn, can be shared by all the peoples and nations of the world.
The experience of true community is a unique way of communicating, of sharing our deepest thoughts and feelings without fear or guilt. ...describes the exhilarating process by which we join together, whatever our cultural backgrounds and religious beliefs, overcome our prejudices, transcend our differences, and learn to accept and love ourselves and each other. With fascinating stories and case histories, he reveals that the steps we must take toward achieving community are surprisingly similar to the steps we must take toward achieving wholeness and maturity in our human growth."
