We all have unhealed past trauma. Science is proving that we even have trauma from our ancestors. Even with an ideal childhood, family and community life, just knowing about or witnessing all the suffering in the world can cause trauma. We who are vegans for the animals and animal rights activists, yearn to alleviate the pain of animals.
I have not read this book thoroughly, but it was recommended by Melanie G., a person who has generously contributed her time to give very helpful feedback to me about the website. Jerry Koch-Gonzales, one of my sociocracy class teachers and a person I respect very much–has recommended this book as well.
I look forward to reading more of it soon, and hope to hear your feedback as well.
