ALL THE WAY IN is a moving and inspiring story of Sister Jeanne’s ongoing journey in religious life, leading to increasing activism (protesting war, including blocking the White Train carrying nuclear weapons), solidarity with refugees in Central America, and finally, inspired by the work of Thomas Berry, starting Homecoming Farm, her home for the past 27 years, promoting a spirituality of care for the earth.


“The times are making mystics of us . . .

. . . making us into what humans are meant to be. We are meant to be part of each other, part of Earth. We are meant to hurt when one part of us hurts, to cry and grieve, meant to feel guilty if we are responsible for another’s pain. We are meant to see and hear, to smell touch and taste life with all its ups and downs and to know the deep joy of what it means to be one with oceans and trees and one another.”

— Jeanne Clark, OP

From Activism to Farming to Deeptime . . .

All The Way In is the inspiring story of one Dominican sister’s ongoing journey in religious life, moving from conventional ministries to a growing engagement with nonviolent witness, peace activism, care for Earth and the discovery of her cosmic identity.

Top Image:  Jeanne Clark was arrested at the Pentagon on Good Friday in 1981.  She poured blood under the plaque that reads Department of Defense while the community with her chanted “This is the blood of the poor, this is the blood of El Salvador, this is the blood of Christ.”

Picture with Baby (middle) and Father and Children (below):  Sister Jeanne holds the photo she carried when she was charged with “obstructing a lawfully operated train,” though she knew under International Law, that the train carrying nuclear weapons to the Trident Submarine in Washington State operated illegally.

When she was arrested and being put into the police car, she held up the picture of Daniel saying “His name is Daniel and he is asking us to stop the train.’  Two years later Glen Milner (pictured below with his children) an electrician living in Seattle was on trial for being in front of another train as it came to deliver weapons to the Trident.  On the witness stand  he was asked by his defense attorney why he was in front of the train.  He stated “Two years ago I was watching TV in my home in Seattle. The first white train had just arrived at the base.  I saw a woman being arrested and being  put into a police car.  She was holding up a photo of a baby and saying “His name is Daniel and he is asking us to stop the train.”  I felt like she was speaking directly to me as a father.  That is why I was in front of the train.”

Quotes about All The Way In

“With tender compassion and fierce humility, Sister Jeanne shares the wisdom garnered through a life committed to walking a path of truth and justice. Her work offers both inspiration and deep nourishment for all those working to create a better world for the Earth and all her children.”
–Stephan Martin, Director, Deeptime Leadership Program at the Deeptime Network

“Rising up from a planetary chaos of political antagonisms, ruinous industrial processes, and threats of nuclear war, is Sister Jeanne Clark, OP, a miracle of wisdom and faith. As you read her story, you will find yourself weeping with joy. Her very existence is proof that, in the midst of vast destruction, humanity is also building a world of compassion and peace.”—Brian Thomas Swimme, California Institute of Integral Studies

“Jeanne Clark’s book is a page turner. An engaging story of a deeply committed nun inspired by Dorothy Day and Thomas Berry to create the foundations for peace with the Earth Community.”—
Mary Evelyn Tucker, Co-author, Journey of the Universe, Yale Forum on Religion and Ecology

“Jeanne Clark’s collection of inspiring personal stories reveals a faithful journey in response to deeply challenging manifestations of violence and injustice. Clearly, a community of communities—ultimately the beloved Earth Community—provided fertile soil for her repeatedly affirmative and risky responses to the signs of the times.”—Marie Dennis, Senior Advisor to the Secretary General, Pax Christi International

“Sister Jeanne Clark shows us that to be ‘religious’ is to be in relation. The true power of religion is not to save us from the world but to save the world from our worst impulses. That takes courage. These pages inspire us to answer for ourselves the question of what we feel called to do.”—Carl Safina, Endowed Professor for Nature and Humanity, Stony Brook University 

Our Gifts . . .

We are each a kind of supernova, where we have been given a particular set of gifts by the universe, and our role is to fashion new constructions of those gifts and to express them and give them away, radiating them like stars and supernovae. This radiance of our gifts in whatever form they take is all that is needed and we will have done our cosmic task bestowed to us.

— Brian Swimme, Cosmogenesis
