In the Gospels, we often find Jesus going off alone or with a small group of friends to pray and rest. If Jesus himself needed quiet time, how much more do we? Come away from your daily obligations to rest, restore and re-connect to yourself and to the living Christ.
Sit by the fireplace, nap, walk in the garden (weather permitting), and enjoy both ample time for solitude and (optional) group activities.

At this time of year, many of us resolve to pay more attention to our eating and exercise habits. Often this comes from a place of self-criticism. We get internal and external messages all the time telling us that our bodies are somehow lacking – that we are not the perfect size, shape, or age, or that we are not in the perfect health. This book takes a different approach – it invites us to use the wisdom of our bodies to find not only greater ease in our bodies (whatever their limitations or challenges) but also more equanimity of mind and a deeper connection to Spirit - to use the wisdom of the body to move toward greater wholeness and integration, spaciousness and peace.
