Running Over Rocks : Spiritual Practices to Transform Tough Times
Running Over Rocks is an invitation into a journey of discovery. Through reflections, images and strikingly beautiful poems, Ian Adams - author of the bestselling Cave Refectory Road - explores fifty-two spiritual practices to enable us to live with joy, grace and purpose through good and tough times alike and so to bring good to the world around us. These practices draw on an ancient wisdom but are rooted in the everyday material of our lives, revealing that any transformation of the world for good must always begin with ourselves.
