This fascinating book brings together wisdom from around the world and through the ages. Sources include the Bible, new science and new cosmology, native spirituality, folk stories, natural history, poetry and commentary on life situations by wise people (e.g. Desmond Tutu and Kahlil Gibran). Themes include: - Original wisdom (the wisdom that makes possible the universe we know) - Natural wisdom (the wisdom in the created world) - Native wisdom (the wisdom expressed in all human traditions from the earliest stages of our human journey) - Life wisdom (practical wisdom we gather and pass on) - Desert wisdom (wisdom we gather in the dark times) - Guiding wisdom (the wisdom that gives us direction) - Unfolding wisdom (the wisdom unfolding around us that reveals that we don't have all the answers). The Way of Wisdom will appeal to all those searching for a deeper meaning and sense of connectedness in their lives.
Margaret Silf is a writer and a frequent leader of retreats and conferences. She has been trained by the Jesuits in accompanying people in prayer and is author of One Hundred Wisdom stories and One Hundred More Wisdom stories, as well as The Wisdom of St Ignatius of Loyola.
