Reflections on Things that Matter by

This book covers a great deal of ground spiritually, philosophically, and emotionally.

Moving from the particular to the universal, to that place where we are all one, the author uses moments from his life experience to help us better understand and appreciate our own journey.

Flip Flop Fantasy

by

On a hot and humid July day in 2016, I set out from my home in the heart of Toronto on a three-hundred dollar bicycle, alone, forty-one years old, with next-to-no camping or long-distance cycling experience. My destination: more than two thousand kilometers away, the Cabot Trail. I had no idea what I was doing or why I was doing it. All I knew was I was scared as hell. Single, no children, and perhaps feeling a little lost, I was unsure of so many things about my life. However, this bike ride I ...

It’s about opening the drapes and letting the light in, taking deep breaths, and embracing all the sweet, inconvenient, laughable, stressful, playful ups and downs of this great ...

Pearls in the Grass

by

There are truly pearls in this memoir, treasuries of generosity in spirit, courage and humor. I have known Cinder Warren for many years and in many circumstances. I am filled with wonder and astonishment by the way she faces life's challenges and tells her remarkable story with grit and graciousness. Sometimes the "Elders" of this part of the cosmos give us a person who is strong enough, brave enough, and, indeed funny enough to lead us through the dark forest into the world of light and ...


Broken and Beautiful cover

Broken and Beautiful

by

The Japanese have an ancient tradition called kintsugi. Instead of discarding a beautiful bowl that has been broken, they use gold to repair it, creating a vessel that is unique and even more valuable than before. Kintsugi illustrates the truth that nothing is ever truly broken beyond repair. Rather than hiding the brokenness, the gold creates something new and cherished. Broken and Beautiful tells a tale of clergy sexual abuse and the aftermath of pain and suffering it creates, but the story ...
