Inspiration for All Seasons
INSPIRATION FOR ALL SEASONS
Celtic Wisdom for Today
Long before the terms ‘mindfulness’ and ‘well-being’ were coined, the Celtic tradition offered pathways to peace of mind and calm. For centuries it has created hope, unity and a community – a sanctuary of rest, renewal and reassurance. In these troubled times, the importance of connection, and a sanctuary, is stronger than ever.
Drawing on the wisdom, stories, poetry, prayers and humour that are at the heart of the Celtic tradition, Inspiration for All Seasons reminds us of where we come from and brings comfort when it is badly needed. With contributions from individuals such as Peter McVerry and Mark Patrick Hederman, and a tribute to the late, great John O’Donohue, this book shines a light in the darkness.
All royalties from this book will go to the Peter McVerry Trust.
