ABBA GIVE ME A WORD THE PATH OF SPIRITUAL DIRECTION

$15.99

"I challenge you to get through a chapter of this book without a desire for God being struck in your soul. Roger Owens wears his brilliance lightly and loves words tenderly and lavishly in these pages. He is ferociously gifted, and fast becoming one of the abbas to whom the reading church often turns for a word from the Lord."-Jason Byassee is senior pastor of Boone United Methodist Church and a Fellow in Theology & Leadership at Duke Divinity School With a style and warmth of presentation that will remind readers of Henri Nouwen's most popular work, "Abba Give Me a Word" interweaves the author's personal stories of struggle - and transformation - with reflections on the history and purpose of spiritual direction. The result is a wise introduction to an ancient art and practice of "soul care" - directed at Christians of all backgrounds. "This is a guide for those eager for a serious yet joyful journey from isolation to communion. It is about companionship on the greatest journey anyone can undertake. It is about kindness in the old sense of the word."-Alan Jones is dean emeritus of Grace Cathedral, San Francisco, and the author of "Soul Making"

ABUNDANT SIMPLICITY

$15.00

Which activities give you energy and connect you with God? Do you know what behaviors are life-draining for you, separating you from God? Simplicity is about choosing the engaging, relational life we were meant to live. It means shedding obligation and pretension. It means spending time energy money in ways that help us become clear-headed. It means being intentional about what we do and how we live. These choices allow God's power to move through us and bless others as we have space to do good. In each chapter Jan Johnson provides small experiments with simplicity as well as questions for discussion or reflection to get you started. Come and discover the unhurried rhythms of grace.

ALWAYS DISCERNING AN IGNATIAN SPIRITUALITY FOR THE NEW MILLENNIUM

product image
$14.95

Pope Francis has explicitly and repeatedly stated that discernment is essential for anyone who is a follower of Jesus Christ. But what, exactly, is discernment? Why must we do it? When do we do it? How should we do it?

In Always Discerning, Joseph A. Tetlow, SJ, delves thoughtfully into these questions and shares how lay Christians can implement discernment into not only life s big decisions but also into the everyday, more mundane choices we constantly find ourselves having to make. Guided by Scripture, Pope Francis s own words, and Ignatian spirituality, Fr. Tetlow helps us see that the dynamic interrelationship of head, heart, and hands is crucial to the discernment process.Ultimately, Always Discerning provides a powerful and highly practical way for the people of God to pray in the new millennium, while teaching us how to recognize God s will in every area of our lives and respond to it in joy and love.

ARCHETYPES AND SPIRITUAL GUIDANCE

product image
$19.95

To educate anyone effectively it is essential to understand their learning style and personality type. In Archetypes for Spiritual Direction, Bruce Tallman applies this principle to the task of spiritual direction, using as his model the "archetypes" identified by noted psychologist Carl Jung.

Archetypes, according to Jung, comprise the contents of the "collective unconscious," the vast universal mind that all human beings share in. Archetypes are power centers hardwired into the male and female psyche/soul that subconsciously control everything we do. They manifest themselves in every culture and every age in healthy and unhealthy ways. The healthy archetypes are inner guides or "heroes" that help us fulfill our destinies.

Tallman describes the way the four foundational heroic archetypes--the Sovereign, Warrior, Seer and Lover and their eight anti-heroic counterparts--the Tyrant, Abdicator, Sadist, Masochist, Manipulator, Fool, Addict and Frigid--affect the way male and female spiritual directors and guides give spiritual guidance. His book also describes how heroic or anti-heroic seekers are formed. And it addresses how seekers can cope with an anti-heroic spiritual director and how all spiritual guides/directors and seekers can become more heroic by activating their healthy archetypes; how all of us can discover the spiritual heroes within.

Archetypes represent a third major educational tool that can be used in spiritual direction and guidance besides the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator and the Enneagram. There are many books about archetypes and many about spiritual direction, but no other book addresses how archetypes affect the way people do spiritual direction.

$14.95

"The dreams in our hearts have to be matched
by our craftsmanship in the world."

Spiritual seekers in the 21st century take many forms, from the visionary and futurist to the social activist and rebel.

A new companion for traveling purposefully on the path, Barefoot on Holy Ground helps you learn how to call forth the good in every circumstance and use it to further your mission and consciousness. Through numerous enjoyable, effective exercises and meditations, you will learn how to integrate your inner and outer resources of mind, body, emotions, finances, and careers into your personal practice.

Drawing on the wisdom of ancient scriptures and contemporary thinkers from many world traditions, tapping into her own and other disciples real-life stories and insights, Karpinski shares the Twelve Lessons of Spiritual Craftsmanship that are essential to the disciple s path.
These easy-to-follow lessons are divided into three parts: Knowing the Way explores the ways we recognize and understand our mission through Knowledge, Revelation, Body Wisdom, and Discernment; Becoming the Way illuminates the fundamental building principles of strong discipleship: Love, Will, Faith, and Power; and Fulfilling the Way reveals the practical process through which we bring our journey to fruition by Creating, Transforming, Enduring, and Serving. Integration, balance, and wisdom are the benefits of the twelve lessons, the treasured syntheses of yin and yang, light and shadow, heaven and earth. Full of exciting, effective spiritual exercises, Barefoot on Holy Ground leads readers purposefully along the path to Conscious Evolution so that they can embrace their higher calling."
