Palmer identifies in Healing the Heart of Democracy: The Courage to Create a Politics Worthy of the Human Spirit as the catalyst for exploring your heart’s habits and cultivating your capacity to practice habits which nurture life-giving relationships and to live and lead with increasing integrity and courage.
