Description

This is a classic book from the unique insight and spiritual wisdom of Evelyn Capel.

She covers the main festivals and events in the Christian Year: Advent, Christmas, Epiphany, Lent, Easter, Ascension, Whitsun, St John's tide, and Michaelmas, always linking them back to the Gospels and Christ.

She considers the cycles of our world: the changing seasons; life, death and resurrection; waking and sleeping; breathing in and breathing out.

Throughout, Capel never loses sight of the over-arching cosmic themes which influence the spiritual rhythms of the Earth and human beings.

Reviews

'I have always loved everything I've read by Evelyn Capel -- most of which is sadly out of print. She is one of those rare people who can not only understand the nature of things on many levels, but she also has a warm heart and conveys this deep and penetrating understanding as though her heart was speaking to yours.'
-- Bob and Nancy's Bookshop, www.waldorfbooks.com

'A wonderful companion to read through the cycle of the year. Very readable!'
-- Rafael Foundation, www.naturallyyoucansing.com
