    The Other Side of Chaos : Breaking through when life is breaking down

    , , , ,
    Your children have left home, you have lost your job, you have had to move to a strange town, your partner has died ... Every life is filled with changes and transitions. In The Other Side of Chaos, the popular writer and speaker Margaret Silf takes us on a journey through the pitfalls and the opportunities of change. Transitions may be awkward and uncomfortable, but they also put into places where new life can flourish. Silf invites us to embrace the inevitability of upheaval, and shows us how the leaving of our comfort zone can become an invitation to set ourselves free. Through stories and examples and down-to earth tips, she shows us how we can live our transitions constructively and creatively. `We will discover what new growth may be sprouting in our lives only if we risk the journey that takes us, like reluctant time travellers, hurtling through the uncharted universe of change.'

    Hidden Wings: Emerging from troubled times with new hope and deeper wisdom

    , ,
    You must become the change you long for. Fine words, a great vision, but where to begin? We caterpillars know. From the moment we are conceived in our parents' mating dance, we already contain the cells that hold our future butterfly. Let us tell you our story... Tumultuous changes are occurring in the world around us, and the structures and values by which we have charted our lives seem to be collapsing. Many of us are struggling to plot a spiritual path through this unfamiliar landscape, and to believe in a positive future. Hidden Wings is a book offering hope and understanding. Using the example of a caterpillar entering the devastating, world-altering stage of the chrysalis, before emerging – transformed – as a butterfly, Margaret Silf helps us to see that these times of chaos could in fact be an opportunity for profound spiritual transformation.

    Sacred in the City: Seeing the spiritual in the everyday

    ,
    In this beautifully illustrated book, Margaret Silk uncovers the shimmer of the sacred in the familiar places of everyday city living – the places where we work, live and choose to gather – and invites us to notice and respond to its glow in our own surroundings. In her words, The sacred is all around us, all the time. It is the reality in which we live and move and have our being. But it is our own lives that make this holiness incarnate, and make our places of living and working sacred, and therefore life-giving to all. This book will guide and inspire you too, to notice and engage with this transforming presence in places where you might least expect to find it.

    Landmarks: An Ignatian Journey

    ,
    Landmarks help us to find ourselves when we think we are lost. When we don't know where to begin, they give us a starting point. When we thing we know where we are, they give us the confidence to keep going. And if we think we have arrived, they remind us that there is always something more, somewhere beyond... This is a book of landmarks to the heart's journey. Written out of the author's own prayer and lived experience, and inspired but her practical explorations of the insights of St Ignatius Loyola, it opens up questions which concern us all. How can we recognise God's ceaseless action in our lives and begin to discern His will? What does 'fallenness' mean for us today? How can we live true to ourselves and make decisions in freedom? How do we penetrate our deepest desires and become free of the lesser attachments that obstruct them? Big questions - but as Margaret Silf shows, there are clues to be discovered in every moment and situation: at home, at work, in the garden, in the market, in the bath! Landmarks will help us discover and deepen our own individual journeys. Written for both groups and individuals, it is illustrated with drawings and diagrams, and contains exercises and suggestions for prayer and reflection. Be warned, however. Landmarks are not for armchair pilgrims. They are for the People of the Way.
