Eight Books as Journeys into New Ways of Seeing
Since 1992, I have published eight books, each of them an invitation to explore world views that offer very different insights and perspectives, an invitation to see the world with new eyes. I have learned that with a shift in vision, we see more clearly what's going on in the complex systems and lives we've created. This clear seeing gives us the capacity to better serve the people and causes we care about. And we develop the confidence and strength necessary to persevere in our right work.
I am very pleased to offer you this new book, a very personal and reflective work written just after my 70th birthday.
Each of my books is an invitation to see the world with new eyes. Yet unlike my previous seven books, How Does Raven Know? invites you to see the world anew informed not by science but by sacred wisdoms. I have sought to encourage you to shift your gaze once again to discover the support, confidence, and companionship we need to meet this time.
An Invitation to Warriorship
I wrote this book for you if you offer your work as a contribution to others, whatever your work might be. And if now you find yourself feeling exhausted, overwhelmed, and despairing while also experiencing moments of joy, belonging, and increased resolve to do your work.
This book describes how we can do our good work with dedication, energy, discipline and joy by consciously choosing a new role for ourselves, that of that of warriors for the human spirit.
This book contains maps of how we ended up in a world nobody wants - overtaken by greed, self-interest and oppressive power--the very opposite of what we worked so hard to create. These maps look deeply into the darkness of this time so that we can develop the insight we need to contribute in meaningful ways.
This book provides maps into the future, how we can transform our grief, outrage, and frustration into the skills of insight and compassion, to serve this dark time with bravery, decency and gentleness.
As warriors for the human spirit, we discover our right work, work that we know is ours to do no matter what. We engage wholeheartedly, embody values we cherish, let go of outcomes, and carefully attend to relationships. We serve those issues and people we care about, not so much focused on making a difference, as on being a difference.
I invite you into this exploration of warriorship.
WALK OUT WALK ON:
A Learning Journey into Communities Daring to Live the Future Now
by Margaret Wheatley and Deborah Frieze
In this era of increasingly complex problems and shrinking resources, can we find meaningful and enduring solutions to the challenges we face today as individuals, communities and nations?
In Walk Out Walk On, authors Meg Wheatley and Deborah Frieze invite you on a learning journey to seven communities around the world to meet people who have walked out of limiting beliefs and assumptions and walked on to create healthy and resilient communities. These Walk Outs who Walk On use their ingenuity and caring to figure out how to work with what they have to create what they need.
From Mexico to India, from Columbus, Ohio to Johannesburg, South Africa, we discover that every community has the ingenuity, intelligence, and inventiveness to solve their seemingly insolvable problems. “We discovered a gift inside ourselves,” one Brazilian said, “something that was already there.”

For many years, I’ve observed people persevering through tragedies and harsh circumstances I hope never to encounter. And I’ve observed friends, family and colleagues struggling to persevere through this time of uncertainty, difficulty and occasional insanity.
