of Stones
by Christine Valters Paintner

paperback 96 pages

The poems in Dreaming of Stones are about what endures: hope and desire, changing seasons, wild places, love, and the wisdom of mystics. Inspired by the poet’s time living in Ireland these readings invite you into deeper ways of seeing the world. They have an incantational quality. Drawing on her commitment as a Benedictine oblate, the poems arise out of a practice of sitting in silence and lectio divina, in which life becomes the holy text.   No stranger to poetry, Paintner’s bestselling spirituality titles have often included poems. In this first exclusively poetic collection, she writes with a contemplative heart about kinship with nature, ancestral connections, intimacy, the landscape, the unfolding nature of time, and Christian mystics. It can be read for reflection to spark the heart and to offer solace and inspiration in difficult times. 

'These poems have both a mystical and earthy sensibility, drawing us to the transcendent as well as the immanent presence of the divine.  They off an experience of retreat and sacred encounter'      RICHARD ROHR, ofm

"Christine Valters Paintner presents the flash of light, the kernel of truth that goes deeper and more mystically in to the heart of the universe than fact and faith can hope to do.  She makes a bridge for us between experience and wisdom and gives us a veritable holograph of life."
