By Riane Eisler and David Loye
The Partnership Way: New Tools for Living and Learning offers practical information and experiential exercises based on the ideas in The Chalice and The Blade and Sacred Pleasure.
Illustrated with line drawings of prehistoric, historic, and contemporary art, this partnership workbook shows how women and men can “rewrite” their life scripts with alternatives to domination, manipulation, and violence. Co-authored by Riane Eisler and her partner, social psychologist David Loye, The Partnership Way provides practical information and experiential exercises based on the ideas in The Chalice and The Blade and Sacred Pleasure. Designed for both individual and group use, it shows how to develop partnership groups in settings ranging from churches and self-help groups to colleges and high schools.
Reviews & Accolades
“Completely awesome reinterpretation of Western archaeology and history with Gylanic perspective replacing androcratic perspective.”—Larry Sherk
“This concept of non-linear systems in our organizations is vital for systemic change in our culture. The paradigm shift we have been looking for.”—Emilia Rainwalker
“The Partnership Way provides nine “lessons” which guide a group through C&B. This path is structured so that the group follows it together, without relying on the “authority” of a “leader.” The experience of covering this material in a “partnership way” is what they didn’t teach you in school. Learning to work together without ranking ourselves is a skill that we lost thousands of years ago. This book presents an opportunity for those who would like to reclaim that skill.”—Elde Bear
Amazon Smile Program
If you shop online at Amazon, please go through AmazonSmile, their charitable rewards program to give 0.5% of all eligible purchases to CPS. It’s quick and easy. All you have to do is:
- Go to smile.amazon.com. Set this as a bookmark and always enter Amazon through this address. This is important, as purchases made through the regular Amazon site are not calculated toward the charity disbursements.
- The first time that you go to the site, you will be asked to fill in the organization that you want to benefit from your purchases. Type in the Center for Partnership Studies (it should also appear in the dropdown selections).
- After that, just do your ordering as you normally do.
We are most grateful, and most encouraged to count you among our Caring friends.
