Esther de Waal draws on the ancient traditions of Celtic and monastic spirituality to explore thresholds between people, between cultures, between the human and the divine. Ancient spiritual wisdom teaches that thresholds are sacred places and Esther encourages readers to become more receptive to their surroundings and to learn to pause, reflect and meet God at the places of encounter and change in our lives.
ESTHER DE WAAL is one of today's most celebrated spiritual writers. Seeking God, her classic book on the relevance of the Rule of St Benedict for lay people, has opened up the riches of the monastic tradition to readers throughout the world for 25 years. Greatly in demand as a speaker and retreat leader around the globe, she lives on the border between England and Wales in Herefordshire.
