In Surrender: My Journey from Guerrilla to Grandmother, Katherine Power recounts the events of her dramatic journey from anti-war activist to revolutionary guerrilla, through 23 years of life on the run where she built a family that she had to leave in a dramatic surrender, serving a prison sentence where she found grace and meaning.

Now, as an elder, Power reflects on her inner journey and its lessons-how cultivating inner peace and practicing compassion are the foundation of powerful action for change in the world.

“I made a really misguided decision to take up war against the government,” said Power, who has made Concord her home for almost 20 years. “It felt like our government was making war on us, and the Black Panthers, and actually using live ammunition against college students.”

In her new book, Surrender: My Journey from Guerrilla to Grandmother, Power traces the arc of her thinking after a life spent grappling with her own involvement in violence and activism and with war and eventual peace. “I had always thought of the atmosphere of rage and violence as a force of the times, an outburst over the government’s violent repression and our powerlessness to stop the war,” she writes in a chapter titled “Idealist, Activist, Militant.”

She now views her story as a cautionary tale. “Many of us who turned to violence in those days have come to see that it was a severe error in judgment,” she writes.
