Join Robert V. Taylor, nationally known speaker, writer, activist for social justice, and blogger for the Huffington Post as he discusses his new book, A New Way to Be Human: 7 Spiritual Pathways to Becoming Fully Alive on November 11 at the Vero Beach Book Store.
A native of Cape Town, South Africa, Taylor was sent to the United States by his mentor, Nobel Laureate and Archbishop Desmond Tutu, in 1980 to avoid imprisonment for his anti-apartheid activity. There, Taylor served in the Diocese of New York from 1983 to 1999, helping to build a community social service center offering HIV/AIDS programs to veterans and people of color, in-home services for the elderly, daycare for children of single parent families, and a community music education initiative.
In his new book which includes a foreword by Archbishop Tutu, Taylor speaks to the reader looking for a life of bold compassion and feeling. “By identifying 7 pivotal, universally recognizable life occurrences as spiritual pathways, A New Way to Be Human will immediately connect you to actionable personal spiritual practices,” shares Taylor.
