Restoring the Sacred to Life.
Stories of Women in Homelessness & Transition.
"Anne is a friend of mine. As I read this book, I felt close to the women in the stories Anne so gently shared from her years of facilitating women's meditation circles in shelters. It opened up my sense of belonging to a very large group of women of this world." Lena/Owner of Rosemary's Garden
This book is a collection of stories about some of the hundreds of courageous, newly homeless women who have participated in the meditation circles Anne Scott has led over the course of the past five years. These are stories of how, when given a safe space to reconnected with the sacred within themselves, women of all backgrounds and religions can come together to find healing and transformation in the simplicity of silence, sharing, and witnessing.
In this luminous collection of stories by and about homeless women, Anne Scott conveys the sacred power that bubbles from the wellspring of the feminine soul in challenging circumstances. Weaving the women's own writing and the recounting of their dreams with Anne's own wise reflections, Finding Home is not only a testament to the courage and grace of the women it celebrates, but a call to us all to embrace radical change and bless all that is.
Anne Scott shares the unique, heartbreaking, and yet fiercely hopeful stories of homeless women of all races and ages. These women, like us, hunger for and seek the truest home, and their stories touch a deep chord. Throughout the book, Anne's subtle observations and weavings awaken our own longing for the sacred place within, leading us to genuine contemplation and prayer.
This practical book demonstrates how to create circles for women, circles that empower at the deepest level of the soul where real change takes place. These are healing stories for us all - men and women alike.
