Description

Author: Robert Kiely

"Erasmus thought that comic sense brought us close to understanding fallen humanity in relation to God. Robert Kiely's reflections on the spiritual challenges of mid-life are in that great humanist tradition."" - Jill Ker Conway, author of The Road from Coorain and True North.

"Much autobiographical writing falls short of the spiritual dimension, which gives it real depth and universality. Robert Kiely rises above this tendency in his view of his life taken at a mature midpoint. Beginning with the unexpected birth of a new child he shows how each stage of life has its surprises and joys.  Reflecting on his father's death he shows how parental influences change throughout our life.  Exploring the friendships of his mid-life he suggests how these experiences are related to the gift of his discovering a new and deeper form of spiritual life in the practice of meditation and his life within a monastic family that enriches and highlights his marriage and the way it is told.  But this story shows that it also enriches us by helping us to make sense of the patterns and surprises of our own emerging stories."


- Laurence Freeman O.S.B., Director of the World Community for Christian Meditation. His books include Light Within, The Selfless Self and Web of Silence.
