Our awareness is the foundation of our lives, yet we often take it for granted as if it were outside our control. Nothing could be further from the truth. In a world of fear, mistrust and seemingly insoluble problems, a deeper awareness of our daily lives is the most direct contribution each of us can make to a society based on trust, peace and mutual respect. The partnership of Tony D’Souza, a spiritual teacher, and Bud Wonsiewicz, an accomplished business executive, is emblematic of the synthesis of inner and outer awareness that is our best hope for the future. —Peter Senge, author of The Fifth Discipline: the Art and Practice of the Learning Organization.
