Sacred Life of Everything
This book is a collection of meditations using poems, reflections and photograph that all stem from Sr Stan and Síle Wall working together in the Sanctuary in Dublin, where thousands of people come every year seeking opportunities to meditate, to become more present, more attentive, more aware and more mindful.

This little gem of a book is just another opportunity assisting people to access their unique inner landscape, and the central theme is that everyday experiences can be sacred when we take the time to stop, pay attention and encounter a place, person, situation or object, in a fresh way, as through experiencing it for the first time. The images are all photographs taken by people connected to the Sanctuary, going about their ordinary daily activities and, in a moment in time experiencing an awakening of their senses."

Henry Ford’s dream of ‘a motor-car for the great multitude’ and Martin Luther King’s dream of freedom and justice for his people are pondered, as the reader is taken on a journey of threshold moments that invigorate and inspire.
