Well known in education circles for ‘The Courage to Teach”, Parker Palmer is also the author of “Let Your Life Speak: Listening for the Voice of Vocation”. In this book, Palmer inspires us to look within to find our calling. Grounded in the Quaker tradition of ‘way’, Palmer writes: “Before I can tell my life what I want to do with it, I must listen to my life telling me who I am.” (p. 4) Since in Western culture “we tend to gather information in ways that do not work very well when the source is the human soul” (p. 7), Palmer recounts his own personal journey to illustrate the different pitfalls and paths of trying to figure out what to do with your life.
