    Walking the Labyrinth: A Spiritual and Practical Guide

    , ,
    A labyrinth is one of the most ancient tools for spiritual growth and development, dating back to medieval Christianity. Walking a labyrinth is like going on a pilgrimage where beautiful and unpredictable things can happen. Sometimes a burden is laid down; sometimes a challenge is picked up; sometimes just stopping at the centre is enough; sometimes we need to be turned around immediately. This inviting guide introduces the labyrinth and traces its history in the Christian spiritual tradition. It explores the different ways individuals and groups, including children, can use a labyrinth for prayer and reflection, and contains many idea for using the labyrinth in worship and mission. Some seasonal liturgies are also included. You can discover how to create your own labyrinth – in church, in an open space, or in miniature for your own personal use at home or on the move. Walking the labyrinth will take you beyond merely following a path to a deeper experience and understanding of this ancient devotional walking practice, which many have found to be nothing other than walking on holy ground.

    Falling Upward: A companion journal

    In his bestselling Falling Upward, Father Richard Rohr offers a new paradigm for understanding one of the most profound of life's mysteries: how our failings can be the foundation for our ongoing spiritual growth.

The Companion Journal helps those who have (and those who have not) read Falling Upward to engage fully with the questions the book raises. Using a blend of quotes, questions for individual and group reflection, stories, and suggestions for spiritual practices, it provides a wise guide for deepening the spiritual journey – at any time of life.

    Falling Upward: A Spirituality for the Two Halves of Life

    , ,
    In the first half of life, we are naturally and rightly preoccupied with establishing our identities – climbing, achieving, and performing. But those concerns will not serve us as we grow older and begin to embark on a further journey, one that involves challenges, mistakes, loss of control, broader horizons, and necessary suffering that shocks us out of our comfort zones. Eventually, we need to see ourselves in a different and more life-living way. This message of 'falling down' – that is in fact moving upward – is the most resisted and counterintuitive of messages in the world's religions, including and most especially Christianity. In Falling Upward, Father Richard Rohr offers a new paradigm for understanding one of the most profound of life's mysteries: how our failing can be the foundation for our ongoing spiritual growth. Drawing on the wisdom from time-honoured myths, heroic poems, great thinkers, and sacred religious texts, the author explores the two halves of life to show that those who have fallen, failed, or 'gone down' are the only ones who understand 'up'. We grow spiritually more by doing it wrong than by doing it right. With rare insight, Rohr takes us on a journey to give us an understanding of how the heartbreaks, disappointments and first loves of life are actually stepping stones to the spiritual joys that the second half of life has in store for us.

    Home Tonight: Further Reflections on the Parable of the Prodigal Son

    ,
    Prior to writing his great classic, The Return of the Prodigal Son, Henri Nouwen suffered an enormous personal loss and breakdown that took him away from his home in the L'Arche Daybreak community for a period of seven months. His thoughts were intense, raw and deeply private, and ultimately revealed to him the passionate drama of parenthood, filial duty, rivalry, anger and unconditional live on display in Rembrandt's painting. On his return from solitude, Henri held small private workshops on his revelations that were recorded in audio. The material of those extremely personal talks has now been formed into a unique work. Home Tonight brings to light Nouwen's lectures on the Prodigal Son in a powerful guide for spiritual reflection. Providing exercises, suggestions for times of solitude, questions for pondering, simple prayers, and aids for personal journalling, Home Tonight leads readers to commune with God through spiritual listening. A practical guide for the inner journey home, this important book will give those who adore Nouwen's works the chance to hear his voice anew on his most popular topic.

    The Road of Life: reflections on searching and longing

    In his 13 years as Vicar, David Adam welcomed over one million adults and children to the Holy Island of Lindisfarne. These pilgrims reflected every mood and attitude to life. Some radiated a presence, others were too busy to stop. Many were collectors of holy places as some would collect stamps! There were those who seemed awestruck at what was around them, and those who closeted themselves away and hardly even saw the island. All have something to teach us. As David Adam tells their stories, we catch glimpses of the inner searching and longing we often feel ourselves. And as we are drawn into the joys and challenges of these individual journeys, we may find ourselves reflecting on richer ways of continuing our own.

    Into the depths: A Journey of Loss and Vocation

    ,
    In January 1984, Sr Mary Margaret Funk, a Benedictine nun from Indiana, paid a visit to Maryknoll missionary nuns working in Bolivia. On what should have been a routine trip to the local town for a convocation ceremony, a flash flood swept away the jeep in which she, three nuns, a priest, and a disabled boy they had adopted were travelling. Only she and the priest survived What happened that night catapulted Sr Meg into twenty-five years of prayer and self-examination. She relentlessly explored her relationship with the transcendent and immanent God, the profundities of her religious tradition, her commitment to spiritual practice, and her very human failings. It was a journey that left her spiritually naked before the terrible love of God; a journey to keep one's heart open to the transforming wounds of suffering. In the great tradition of spiritual confessions from Augustine to Thomas Merton's The Seven-Story Mountain, Into the Depths is a fearlessly honest and simply told account of one woman's struggle to engage at the deeper levels with the most profound questions of faith.

    Inside Grief

    A deep and serious guide for all who are involved personally or professionally with bereavement, this book offer a practical list of resources and further reading. 'There are no timeless right answers to be found; and awareness of the cultural and religious diversity of our society shows us how diverse the rituals are that allow people to make what sense they can of their grief. Ben Rhodes gently points out some of the pitfalls that may open up when such awareness is lacking; and Howard Cooper offers a richly three-dimensional picture of aspects of grieving in Jewish communities... Richard Smith's account of the rituals of death and mourning in the armed forces reminds us of how violent death in foreign was has come once again to be a regular aspect of people's experience in the UK, in a way largely unknown in the four decades before the 1990s. It is moving to hear about the improvising of rituals – and disturbing also to think about the inescapable pressures that seem to leave so little time and space for the handling of this traumatic kind of loss ... If we are to find words of faith to speak in the presence of loss, they have to emerge from whatever we can do to inhabit the territory alongside those who are grieving, to move as far inside as we can; and for Christians that is entirely consistent with their central belief in God who heals only by inhabiting the world of death and grief.'

    In Celebration of Simplicity: The Joy of Living Lightly

    ,
    Our spiritual growth has been stifled by our long obsession with consumption and possessions. This practical yet visionary book offers a model for a truly healthy life based on gospel simplicity. Ditch the study that gets in the way, and your heart is free to respond to God. 'What is in these pages works,' says Penelope Wilcock. 'It's the medicine for today, it transforms life. It's the part of the Bible that shouts off every page but is silenced before it ever gets to church.' Christian simplicity affects our management of time, money, possessions, speech, what we do, eat, and hear, our relationships, resources, homes, transport, the way we dress. It requires discipline, especially at the outset. 'But as we journey, a wonderful sense of freedom permeates our lives; the light heart that is necessary to walk gracefully in Christ's way.'
