Description

This is a book that takes people on a personal journey, a journey that is both spiritual and psychological: a three-fold journey that leads you, the reader, to face issues about yourself, raises challenges about relationships, and points towards what is above and beyond.

Fraser Watts draws on his own Christian tradition in a way that is relevant to spiritual people everywhere, whatever tradition they belong to, or if they are of no religious tradition at all.

It is a book to be read reflectively, giving some time to make connections between what is gently written in the pages and your own experience of life; if you let it, Living Deeply will help you join up a spiritual perspective with your own psychological issues. Such a journey could change a life. Perhaps it will change yours, helping you to see what deeper issues are at stake as you journey through life, and give you a spiritual compass to respond to life’s challenges. This book will help you, indeed, to live more deeply.
