With a background in museum and educational administration, including serving as Vice President of Bennington College, as well as serving on numerous non-profit boards, Barbara Bonner has long looked at the place of service and leadership, doing so with a larger-spirited (Buddhist) perspective than many. She is here with a new book, Inspiring Courage (Wisdom Publications), which follows her earlier, well-received Inspiring Generosity.
“Barbara Bonner brings together stories, poems, and quotes about courage in a wonderful way that reveals the power, coherence and variety in our collective, indeed global, voices of courage. Inspiring Courage is an inspiration!”—Sharon Salzberg.
“Courage is a timeless strength, and particularly relevant in these turbulent times. Barbara Bonner, once again, weaves together inspiring stories, poems and words of wisdom from a wide range of courageous beings. This wonderful book uplifts the heart and helps us engage more passionately with our lives and the world.”—Joseph Goldstein.
