Item Description...
Overview
A spiritual memoir inviting the reader to experience life thoughtfully and contemplatively.

Publishers Description
Like Kathleen Norris and Madeleine L'Engle, Susan Tiberghien tackles the spiritual memoir to luminous results. While her style is both contemplative and poetic, she reflects on very earthy matters: her childhood summoned up by the death of her father, her marriage to a Frenchman, her moving away to Europe, her conversion to Catholicism, her caring for an aging mother-in-law, and her parenting a daughter with anorexia and an adopted son acting out the pain of his earlier life. Through this all is woven Tiberghien's story of spiritual dryness and the method of prayer she developed experientially that led at last to her rebirth.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A FINE SYMPHONY  Apr 23, 2001
This book is structured like a fine symphony: its unity is the theme of the power of silent prayer; its variety (development of the theme) lies in its metaphors for different life experiences; and its progression is masterful: each chapter grows and reveals its insight, and the final, golden chapter grows to a climax that recapitulates, gathers together everything that went before. CIRCLING TO THE CENTER is a quiet tour de force.
 
A superbly crafted, inspiringly presented spiritual memoir  Feb 27, 2001
Susan Tiberghien's Circling To The Center: One Woman's Encounter With Silent Prayer is a superbly crafted, inspiringly presented spiritual memoir of considerably depth and grace. The engaging text is enhanced with thirteen thematically appropriate illustrations. Circling To The Center is highly recommended, contemplative reading for all who seek to enhance their own person spirituality and relationship with the Deity.
 
Reflections  Feb 18, 2001
From "Looking for Gold", her first book, Susan Tiberghien seems to have found gold in "Circling to the Center, One Woman's Encounter with Silent Prayer." The book is a pilgrim's story. Through her own life, she takes the reader to depths of one's own soul while gently introducing them to spiritual mentors along the way. She reawakens that inner yearning for a deeper spiritual life and the need to create space for reflection from a grateful heart. Her 'Suggested Reading' list will be well appreciatedd by anyone searching for a scholarly spiritual foundation. A compassionate and inspirational book, read with much pleasure. Hard to put down.
