“This is a book that provides the balm of perspective for those whose careers or volunteer commitment focuses on serving. Rather than give in to burnout, Bobbi Patterson’s deep insight is that burnout is part of the cycle of service leading to resilience. Reading this book should not be yet another task undertaken by those already burdened; rather, it should be embraced as a hopeful and compassionate refuge at the crossroad where service and contemplative practice meet.”
