Transforming Terror: Remembering the Soul of the World

Karin LofthusCarrington

Abstract

This book offers a new paradigm for moving the world beyond violence as the first, and often only, response to violence. Through essays and poetry, prayers and meditations, it demonstrates that terrorist violence—defined here as any attack on unarmed civilians—can never be stopped by a return to the thinking that created it. A diverse array of contributors—writers, healers, spiritual and political leaders, scientists, and activists, including Desmond Tutu, Huston Smith, Riane Eisler, Daniel Ellsberg, Amos Oz, Fatema Mernissi, Fritjof Capra, George Lakoff, Mahmoud Darwish, Terry Tempest William ...

Keywords: violence, terrorism, terrorist acts, healing, Islam, nature of consciousness, peace, compassion, connectedness, George Lakoff
