“Bold and authentic, passionately benevolent… Thanissara offers profound insights into the alarming global conditions of our time and a mature understanding of the impact of our collective creation — and how we secure a livable future? This brave book offers wise, radical, and practical approaches that realign universal inequities and inspire integrity, intimacy, healing, and respect.”.
