The Heart of L'Arche

Full Product Description

‘The Heart of L’Arche’, by the founder of the international spiritual organisation, ‘L’Arche’, has been revolutionary in changing our understanding of intellectual disabilities. This important book is the blue-print to a better understanding of spiritual wholeness, which embraces our own fragility and need for real community.

Back in 1964, Jean Vanier founder L’Arche - an ecumenical and international federation dedicated to the creation of homes, communities, day programmes and support networks for people with learning disabilities. As a result, this organisation now operates in 40 countries across the globe, working for and with the disabled.

With the wealth of 47 year under his belt, Jean describes the spirituality behind his movement. In his mind the disabled are the key to our transformation and liberation. Our society should not view people as a burden, neither should they be ignored. Instead the vulnerability of others should reveal our own, creating relationship and community.

Publisher's Description

Jean Vanier has indelibly changed our understanding of people with intellectual disabilities. In 1964 in Trosly-Breuil, France, he founded L’Arche – an ecumenical and international federation dedicated to the creation of homes, communities, day programmes and support networks for people with learning disabilities. In this revised edition of The Heart of L’Arche, Jean looks back on almost fifty years of the spirituality of the organization, which now exists in over forty countries worldwide.

In a world where people with disabilities are o­ften ignored or seen as a burden on society, Jean reveals the spirit that keeps his dream flourishing. He shows how a life shared with people who have intellectual disabilities calls us to recognize our own fragility and need for each other. The vulnerability that is so much a part of their experience reveals our own, and invites us into relationship, transformation and liberation.
