ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Judith Wright Favor is an author, spiritual counselor, teacher, and pilot. She joined the Writer’s Flock in 1970 when she challenged Richard Bach to include females in the all-male (book titled) Jonathan Livingston Seagull. He responded by urging her to take up writing herself, and then he named a seagull after her. “Look at Fletcher! Lowell! Charles-Roland! Judy Lee! Are they also special and gifted and divine? No more than you are, no more than I am. The only difference, the very only one, is that they have begun to understand what they really are and have begun to practice it.” (Page 83)

Favor learned to listen from her mother. She has been listening to all sorts of people with kindness and respect for a long time now. Deeply involved with spiritual seekers for more than half a century, she guides people in writing for positive change in these challenging times. Her love of God, poetic language and contemplative practice has found expression with the unique insights into the connections between love and money presented in her latest book. A tireless advocate for attentive approaches to faith and finance – especially as a counterweight to the influence of consumer culture in American society – part of her advocacy includes teaching the power of silence to shape behavior and culture.

Judith Wright Favor is the author of six creative non-fiction books, including Silent Voices (2014), The Edgefielders: Tales of a Poor Farm Great-Grandmother (2013), and Spirit Awakening: A Book of Practices (1988). Her novel, The Beacons of Larkin Street (2017, first in a trilogy) highlights pioneering women church leaders in San Francisco during the 1970s. Page Publishing will release her upcoming book, Friending Rosie: Respect on Death Row (co-written with Rosie Alfaro), early in 2021. Other writing credits include articles in varied faith-based publications, and book reviews focused on the work of many leading (and lesser known) authors. Her platform includes leading courses and retreats with Spirituality and Practice, Stillpoint, Ghost Ranch Conference Center, Alternatives to Violence programs in six California prisons, Claremont School of Theology, Ben Lomond Quaker Center, Friends General Conference, Pacific Center for Spiritual Renewal, plus numerous churches, faith-based social-change groups, and a few retirement communities.
