Sister Stan's new book, Day By Day offers words of wisdom that will inspire and comfort you on your journey through life. Thoughtful and reflective, it draws upon some of the most enlightened figures from both the past and the present as it gently guides you through your day.
Also included here are thought-provoking contributions on a range of subjects, including gratitude, belonging, friendship, courage and daring, from influential figures such as Abbott Mark Patrick Hederman, leading psychologist and founder of Headstrong, Dr Tony Bates, poet Brendan Kennelly, and producer/director Lelia Doolan – each helping Sister Stan to create an invaluable treasury for our times.
Sr. Stan is a well known social activist, campaigner and founder of a number of voluntary organisations including Focus Ireland, the Immigrant Council of Ireland and the Young Social Innovators . In 1998 she founded the Sanctuary, a meditation centre in the heart of Dublin city (www.sanctuary.ie). The vision of the Sanctuary is - to be..STILLNESS..in the world. The Sanctuary believes that everyone - the child, the teenager, the adult - can access this place of stillness within themselves and that once it is part of their consciousness, its potential for their well-being and the well-being of society is huge.
