This book has been out of print for a number of years, so I am making it available as a PDF file, which you can read on a tablet, computer, or many e-book readers.:
Here is a book that pierces right to the heart of spiritual transformation. It is a guidebook not just for what has been narrowly defined as contemplation, but for living a more harmonious and balanced life. Practical exercises throughout the book make it a course in itself.
What the reviewers say:
A certain poetry is evident in every line, just as her depth of reflection resonates in the book’s design, constructed to ease our way onto the path of “entering silence” and bringing us to the recognition of how spirit exists in everything. The Tao of Contemplation, with its gently enfolding grace, invites us to take up more permanent residence in that place of peace within. -Heidi Rain, reviewer, Spirit of Change.
It was a pleasure and comfort to read this book. Post-it tabs marked many passages containing some of the pithiest articulations of inner and outer states that I had read in some time….Her words just glow. -Cynthia W. Butler, reviewer, Venture Inward
