The Hope: A Guide to Sacred Activism (Paperback)
“Every age has its teachers, who keep the eternal truths alive for all of us,” writes Marianne Williamson, the best-selling author of The Age of Miracles. “In the case of Andrew Harvey, the light he sheds is like a meteor burst across the inner sky.”
In The Hope, Andrew Harvey offers not only a guide to discovering your divine purpose but also the blueprint for a better world. It consists of the necessary elements that can inspire greatness in each of us. Based on Harvey’s concepts of Sacred Activism, a global initiative designed to save the world from its downward spiral of greed, pain, and self-destruction, the book is an enlightening text that reflects our world today, while in turn, shapes our future.
There are seven laws of Sacred Activism that have the potential to transform our world. Each law, in its own unique way, promotes love above all other impulses. Sacred Activism is about finding gratitude, forgiveness, and compassion; it is about opening yourself up to the kindness within you, letting go of pain, and making a conscious choice to help heal the world.
Learn how to incorporate a spiritual practice into your life, transform anger into positive energy, and take part in a global community. Reclaim a world that for too long has been driven by selfishness and hatred. Discover the infinite joy of giving. Turn away from everything you have been and done and believed, and dive into the consciousness of a divine love that embraces all beings. While the future may appear bleak, The Hope provides practical advice to all those who want positive change.

~Deepak Chopra, Author, Reinventing the Body, Resurrecting the Soul
“Sacred activism is the most potent after effect of our inner spiritual practices. When the heart explodes in conscious oneness with the Beloved, what remains is a burning desire to be a servant to the One that enlivens all sentient beings, every speck of space. Through his descriptions of the great lovers of humankind, Andrew gives us a clarion call to go beyond admiration to activation of that same capacity within our own hearts that we, too, may become a beneficial presence on the planet.”
~Michael Bernard Beckwith author of Spiritual Liberation~Fulfilling Your Soul’s Potential
“Sacred Activism is a timely and desperately needed activist manifesto. It evolves what it truly means to be an activist in today's world and empowers us to model the change we seek. It's helped me bridge my activism and spiritual life like no other tool. Fellow activists: don't let the unexamined assumption that activism and spirituality don't mix stand in the way of you reading this book. The revolutionary message of Sacred Activism will empower you to reach a new level of effectiveness at producing results while simultaneously being more joyful, peaceful and fulfilled.”
