Description

‘This book will open your eyes, mind and heart to a way of being in the world that will make our world a better and more caring one.’ ARCHBISHOP DESMOND TUTU, author of The Book of JoyUbuntu is an ancient Southern African philosophy about how to live life well, together. It is a belief in a universal human bond, which says: I am only because you are. It means that if you can see everyone as fully human, connected to you by their humanity, you will never be able to treat others as disposable or without worth. By embracing the philosophy of ubuntu it’s possible to overcome division and be stronger together in a world where the wise build bridges and the foolish build walls.These 14 beautifully illustrated lessons from the Rainbow Nation are an essential toolkit to helping us all to live better, together. In stories, practical lessons and applications that recognise our common humanity, our connectedness and interdependence, Everyday Ubuntu helps us to make sense of the world and our place in it.Exploring ideas of kindness and forgiveness, tolerance and the power of listening, this definitive guide offers practical tips on how we can all benefit from embracing others and living a more fulfilling life as part of the large family to which we all belong.__________What readers are saying about Everyday Ubuntu:***** ‘A concept we should all live by.’***** ‘Lots of little gems to help with everyday life.’***** ‘Must read… Very inspiring and thought-provoking.’
