Description:  In the Company of God In the Company of God is an exploration into the paradoxes of oppression and unconditional love. Shakti Butler is a multiracial African-American woman of African, Arawak Indian, and Russian-Jewish descent. Her search is for the meaning and power of unconditional love in the face of our historical human capacity to dehumanize one another. Through the use of spiritual practices–meditation, contemplation and chanting, Shakti examines her own consciousness and responses to internalized and institutionalized oppression through the lens of race. As a result, the reader is invited to enjoin the power of his/her intellect with the wisdom of the heart. Through a process of spiritual practices and transformative learning—a form of adult education involving self-reflection and focused exercises that can result in a structural shift in thoughts, feelings and actions, Shakti Butler takes the reader through a deeply inspiring process. This book offers a welcome look at patterns, concepts, beliefs and behaviors that need to change in order to affect the common good in the modern world both at home and at large.
