In Seasons of Hope, the follow up to her bestselling Day by Day, Sister Stan offers words of wisdom to calm the mind and refocus our energies. Through verse and inspirational quotations from many enlightened figures, she offers us a chance to step away from this frantic world – to stop, to look, to think – and be open to new possibilities.
Also included here are contributions on a range of subjects, such as the gift of life, compassion, meditation and the soul, from influential figures such as writer and playwright, Michael Harding, poets Theo Dorgan and Eavan Boland, and social campaigner, Ruairi McKiernan – each one offering a thought-provoking and unique perspective on our world.
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.
