For all of our progress,the world stubbornly retains a male-dominated, competitive streak. Certainly the emphasis our culture places on enterprise has given us much, but what have we sacrificed along the way? Carol Lee Flindersargues that the more ancient values of Belonging (mutuality, cooperation, and generosity), traditionally associated with women, have been subsumed by thoseof Enterprise (individualism, competitiveness, and materialism), associated with men. In the lives of visionaries, artists, and mystics such as the Buddha, BaalShem Tov, Teresa of Avila, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, John Muir, and Martin Luther King Jr., Flinders offers models for a new kind of balance. Rebalancing the World urges us to incorporate the values we are missing in our lives for the sense of wholeness we all seek.

Reviews

Rated 1 out of 5 by from what a sexist book Typical sexist feminist propaganda that tries hard to convince us that women are somehow more evolved and men are not. Perhaps this woman does not remember how other girls treated her in high school or vice versa. Studies shows that women can be just as mean, competitive, and individualistic.

“Carol Lee Flinders explores the roots of the conflict between our desire for independence and achievement and our longing for community. In offering crucial insights into how to reconcile these two radically different ways of being in the world and acknowledge our precious connection to the land and our responsibilities to each other, she provides a valuable blueprint for the future of modern society.” (Toinette Lippe, author of Nothing Left Over: A Plain and Simple Life)
