In The Soul of Place Michael Jones explores how our relationship with place aligns us with the underlying patterns of life. He does so through stories that ask: what is our experience of homecoming and how do we find our way there? What is our pattern of belonging – including our relationship with people and places – that we hold sacred? What are the conditions of regenerativity and craft that enable us to give birth to something new? How can our stewardship of what is alive within and around us awaken the mythic imagination? And how does this open a path for gathering together in the spirit of transformative celebration?

Michael Jones is a leadership educator, speaker, creative facilitator and pianist/composer. The Soul of Place is his third in a series of books on re-imagining leadership. Others in the series include Artful Leadership: Awakening the Commons of the Imagination and Creating an Imaginative Life. His websites are www.thesoulofplace.com and www.pianoscapes.com.
