The Secret Life Of Human Beings

Mark Yaconelli

As human beings we soon realise that we are not one, but many. How do we live with the different parts within us: the judgement, lust, rage, and depression as well as the joy, passion and empathy? How might we tend the various parts of ourselves in a way that releases our capacity for creative, empathic, and passionate life?
