To Live Fully, Here and Now formulates a coherent and comprehensive understanding of Alice Walker's spiritual wisdom in the age of heightened global awareness, natural devastation, and spiritual crisis. Simcikova argues that to fully understand Walker's complex and multi-layered concept of spirituality, we have to move beyond the womanist model to incorporate and/or accommodate all the influences that have had a significant impact on Walker, particularly her interest in Native American spirituality. Simcikova also offers a new paradigm of wholeness, unity, and interconnectedness for critical analysis of her Walker's latest works. This ground-breaking book will find audiences across disciplines as it addresses the fundamental ethical question of what it means to be human.
