Product Details


“Steven Herrmann carries the visionary message of Walt Whitman, Herman Melville, Emily Dickinson, and William James forward into our time with the added inspiration of C. G. Jung. Spiritual Democracy puts the idea of democracy back to where it belongs, as a shining example of the human spirit at work in the evolution of human culture and social architecture.”
—Murray Stein, PhD, author of Minding the Self: Jungian Meditations on Contemporary Spirituality

“This is a grand, brilliant, and breathtaking book that explores in depth the central wisdom at the core of Whitman’s prophetic poetry—that of Spiritual Democracy. This vision is at the heart of Sacred Activism, and anyone who wants to truly be inspired to act from a universal consciousness in this terrible and divisive time will find in this book rich food for their soul.”
—Andrew Harvey, author of Radical Passion
“This book exposes the deeper spiritual and historical meanings to the world-wide struggle for gender equality, marriage equality, the Divine Feminine, and economic and political justice—that is, for Spiritual Democracy.”
—Dr. Matthew Fox, coauthor of Occupy Spirituality and author of Original Blessing, The Hidden Spirituality of Men, and A Spirituality Named Compassion
Spiritual Democracy is not only about vocation, it is a demonstration of vocation in action. For Steven Herrmann, Whitman, Dickinson, Melville, Jung, and Humboldt are alive, and because of the passion of the writer, they come alive for the reader, too. There is a sense of pleasure in these pages, indeed a sense of joy in the riches that Herrmann came upon.”
—Clark McKowen, author of Image: Reflections on Language
“An epic study integrating a variety of disciplines including literary theory, psychology, ecology, and international politics. Imagine a world where there is a deep sense of acceptance toward the varieties of spiritual experience―this is the message of Spiritual Democracy.”
—Neil Richardson, founder of the online virtual commons, Walt Whitman Integral
