Publisher's Summary

Many of us have strong convictions. We want to advocate for causes we care about - but which ones? We want to work for change - but will the emotional toll lead to burn out?

Leadership coach, lawyer, photographer, and activist Karen Walrond knows that when you care deeply about the world, light can seem hard to find. But when your activism grows out of your joy - and vice versa - you begin to see light everywhere.

In The Lightmaker's Manifesto, Walrond helps us name the skills, values, and actions that bring us joy; identify the causes that spark our empathy and concern; and then put it all together to change the world. Creative and practical exercises, including journaling, daily intention-setting, and mindful self-compassion, are complemented by lively conversations with activists and thought leaders such as Valarie Kaur, Brene Brown, Tarana Burke, and Zuri Adele. With stories from around the world and wisdom from those leading movements for change, Walrond beckons listeners toward lives of integrity, advocacy, conviction, and joy.

By unearthing our passions and gifts, we learn how to joyfully advocate for justice, peace, and liberation. We learn how to become makers of light.

life changing and authentic

Karen, whom I've never had the pleasure of meeting, is my Soul Sister. Embark on this journey with her and she will become your soul sister, too! Her authenticity, vulnerability, generosity, kindness and compassion shine through in every chapter. She is a teacher, sage, and lightmaker, and teaches us how to tap into our light to become lightmakers as well. Beautiful...

Fabulous!

Read this book! I learned of Karen Walrond On Brené Brown’s podcast. I bought it on audible and listen to the reading read by the author which was wonderful. I am buying the printed copy because there’s a treasure trove of guidance, examples, prompts. This is the most impactful self development book I have ever read.
