I've an essay on meditation and mindfulness in this new book by Sr. Stan. Book can be ordered online and should be hitting the shops this week.
"In Seasons of Hope, the follow up to her bestselling Day by Day, Sister Stan offers words of wisdom to calm the mind and refocus our energies. Through verse and inspirational quotations from many enlightened figures, she offers us a chance to step away from this frantic world – to stop, to look, to think – and be open to new possibilities.
Also included here are contributions on a range of subjects, such as the gift of life, compassion, meditation and the soul, from influential figures such as writer and playwright, Michael Harding, poets Theo Dorgan and Eavan Boland, and social campaigner, Ruairi McKiernan – each one offering a thought-provoking and unique perspective on our world"
I love this beautiful production by filmmaker Myles O'Reilly. It is a reflection on the amazing 'We Need To Talk About Ireland' Trailblaze event that was held in the Mansion House in Dublin on St. Patrick's Night 2014. You can my own contribution kicking in at 4.43mins onwards. Check it out.
