"...her candor, willingness to share her experiences, and independence take the listener into the personal life of an outspoken and interesting woman."          ~Library Journal

Excerpt

"Up to now most of the progress defined in our society has revolved around the great advances in technology. Indeed, we have made giant strides in translating our intelligence into technology, to the benefit of a great many people, to such a degree that we are now using technology as the medium, and the measure, of our evolution. Now we are suffering the consequences of making technology a little tin God.

Technology has outstripped our knowledge of self. I remember reading a report on the world's most impoverished nation. It was researched by a Western economist. In the view of this authority, the world's most impoverished nation was the Himalayan mountain kingdom of Bhutan (a Shangri-la of a place I visited years ago). When presented with the facts of the report, the king of Bhutan said, in effect, "Bhutan may have technological impoverishment but we have spiritual richness and happiness."

We clearly have different standards of measurement. The Bhutanese would wonder why man should produce any product if it reduces spirituality. We would wonder why we should be concerned with spirituality if it doesn't generate product."
