This book has come out of decades of suffering, reflection, prayer and attained wisdom.

The Cross is no stranger at our door. We have lived every day for almost two decades in the presence of pain and immense physical, mental and emotional distress, yet we hold onto Love at the centre.

Let go of any theory you might have or dogma or ideology, of any ' proper' way of approaching contemplation

The important thing, we have discovered is to be open to God and to place your awareness in the unstoppable spirit within, which will always lead you to God, no matter what your circumstances, wherever you are, whatever you are doing.

When you place contemplation and prayer together you find that you come to a wonderful place of interaction with God

We have learned you can pray in silence or in movement. There are no limits. You do not just speak to an empty room. You enter into a mystery and there you find God, listening, embracing, loving, supporting you.

"I love this book !!! It is uncomplicated, pure and so needed. Just like God." Pixi (Australia)
