The list author says: "Hi, my name is Kristen Hobby and I have lots of areas of interest and passion. I am married with an amazing daughter, Isabella. When I was in my early twenties I read my first ‘self help’ book called the Road less travelled by M. Scott Peck and have pretty much been on a journey ever since. This lead me to and away from organized religion, I trained to be a counselor, then completed a Masters in Spiritual Direction as well as lots of interesting courses and workshops, everything from the enneagram to dreams to cosmology. I have just enrolled in a PhD in the area of children’s spirituality and the role nature plays in deepening children’s sense of wellbeing and connectedness."
"Ah, the wonderful Richard Rohr. I don't think I've ever read anything of his I haven't loved. His encouragement of non-dualistic thinking is a constant invitation and challenge. This is probably my favourite spirituality book of all time."
"I really enjoyed this book. He is a biologist who sees parallels between what happens at a micro level in our bodies as well as what happens at a deeper spiritual level. I found it quite challenging in a good way."
"This is one of my most used and useful book. If you need prayer or reflection on any topic you will find it. The theology is very open and inclusive and I find each prayer/reflection thoughtful, rich and affirming."
"I love this book because it says that at the heart of it, there is more that binds and connects us than separates us. Drawing from lots traditions he weaves a beautiful book full of wisdom and depth."
"Sure, some of the examples are a little twee but there is a lot to take from this. I like the way he encourages families to be intentional about how they want to be in relationship with other. Lots of practical advise and suggestions."
"I picked this book up about 15 years ago, just as I was starting off of the spiritual journey and it was really helpful. There are lots of exercises and practices to try and overall it is an affirming read."
"What a gem of a book. I have used this so often as I journey with people. The process she sets out is easy to follow yet profoundly helpful. For the logical, left brained among us, this will be a challenge but very worthwhile."
