|Transforming Practices offers a new perspective on why so many of America’s nearly one million lawyers have become disillusioned with their careers. By examining the practices of lawyers who have introduced a spiritual approach to their work and have, in turn, discovered renewed meaning in their professions, Transforming Practices makes it clear that the opportunity for transformation exists for every lawyer.
Author Steven Keeva skillfully examines how lawyers can find deeper meaning in their work, practice more compassionately, and enjoy their jobs more, all by developing a greater awareness of and respect for their inner lives. Filled with inspiring profiles of lawyers who have changed the way they do their jobs, Transforming Practices reveals how working from the heart leads to a more gratifying professional life and successful lawyering.
Steven Keeva’s book is a godsend. It should not only be read, but cherished. The transformative power of his ideas comes like a long overdue rain to the parched and thirsty desert of our profession’s soul.
