Why on Earth?

Biography and the Practice of Human Becoming

by Signe Eklund Schaefer


This book starts from the premise that each of our lives expresses uniqueness of spiritual intention within the unfolding of universal rhythms and possibilities. Can we wake up to the developmental opportunities offered to us through different life phases? Are we able to step out of the narrowness of the dualistic nature-nurture argument and experience that we are both more than our genetic composition and more than a product of the social and educational influences that have shaped us? Can we come to appreciate the learning that our 'I' has received through heredity, ethnicity, schooling, and gender without losing a sense of our true individuality?
