Soul Manifestos and Pieces of Joy:
Steve Thorp’s small, poetic essays are written against the backdrop of conflict in modern culture, politics, economics, ecology and psychology. Each piece stands alone but together the collection coalesces into a gentle, intuitive polemic that seeps into the consciousness. The small manifestos are written for wonder, wisdom, joy, love, and openness - and for the common good. They describe an alternative and grounded response to the material world, a way in which we might live our lives with depth and soul. This is a thought provoking collection and a whole-hearted approach to the crisis facing humans on earth. Each section in this beautifully designed sofback begins with a poem, and the book is illustrated throughout with Ruth Thorp's evocative line drawings.

This little book of poetic meditations by writer and therapist Steve Thorp is an encouragement to sustain the kind of beautiful, joyful and resilient life that might make a difference in our troubled world. These small soul meditations are mindful prose-poems standing as tools in the space between earth and spirit, hope and despair, individual practice and collective activism. They are exploratory waymarks for our journeys through this landscape.
