New Beginnings

Falling Upward: A Spirituality for the Two Halves

by Richard Rohr

€12.75

       

In the first half of life, we are naturally and rightly preoccupied with establishing our identities – climbing, achieving, and performing. But those concerns will not serve us as we grow older and begin to embark on a further journey, one that involves challenges, mistakes, loss of control, broader horizons, and necessary suffering that shocks us out of our comfort zones. Eventually, we need to see ourselves in a different and more life-living way. This message of ‘falling down’ – that is in fact moving upward – is the most resisted and counterintuitive of messages in the world’s religions, including and most especially Christianity.



In Falling Upward, Father Richard Rohr offers a new paradigm for understanding one of the most profound of life’s mysteries: how our failing can be the foundation for our ongoing spiritual growth. Drawing on the wisdom from time-honoured myths, heroic

poems, great thinkers, and sacred religious texts, the author explores the two halves of life to show that those who have fallen, failed, or ‘gone down’ are the only ones who understand ‘up’. We grow spiritually more by doing it wrong that by doing it right.



With rare insight, Rohr takes us on a journey to give us an understanding of how the heartbreaks, disappointments and first loves of life are actually stepping stones to the spiritual joys that the second half of life has in store for us.
