'Stillness is not often a virtue that is praised in our society. On the contrary, we are actively encouraged to do more and more - by our families, our religious groups, our employers, the media. Our culture likes perpetual motion. It likes us to want much and do much. But, to our dismay, we find sooner or later that to have much, to be a consumer, does not always mean that we will feel fulfilled. Sometimes our consuming may leave us very empty. So what is to be done?' In this beautifully presented book, Helen Jaeger offers ten simple paths towards achieving a sense of rest and stillness. Themes explored include stillness, focus, transformation, and patience. Each section comprises short reflections, meditations, poetry and quotations, illustrated with colour nature photography. Readers are invited to journey slowly along each way and to savour the rich combination of words and images.
