Abbot Christopher Jamison, from BBC2's THE MONASTERY and new show THE SILENCE, suggests ways in which the teachings of St Benedict can be helpful in everyday life. Have you ever wondered why everybody these days seems so busy? In FINDING SANCTUARY, Father Christopher Jamison offers practical wisdom from the monastic tradition on how to build sanctuary into your life. No matter how hard you work, being too busy is not inevitable. Silence and contemplation are not just for monks and nuns, they are natural parts of life. Yet to keep hold of this truth in the rush of modern living you need the support of other people and sensible advice from wise guides. By learning to listen in new ways, people's lives can change and the abbot offers some monastic steps that help this transition to a more spiritual life. In the face of many easy assumptions about the irrelevance of religion today, Father Christopher makes religion accessible for those in search of life's meaning and offers a vision of the world's religions working together as a unique source of hope for the 21st century.

Her mother was unhappy because Marid used the phone a lot so she put a passcode on it to lock her out. Although Marid couldn’t call out, her friends could call her. She expected her mother to limit that, but she didn’t. Instead, she waited to punish her until after the Christmas holidays. Marid was talking about returning to school, when her mother lowered the boom. “Marid,” she said, “I’ve decided that you are going to attend a different school.” Standing there in stunned disbelief, Marid’s heart started breaking in half. She’d lose all her close friends and her favorite teachers. Although she hadn’t gone for more counseling sessions, most of all she would lose Myra Stanton’s protection. Myra had always asked how she was doing whenever she saw her in the hallways. Her mother had trashed Myra many times to Marid but she didn’t believe her the way she used too. Marid was beginning to see that her mother was a bully, and she was wrong for the way she treated her. Angrily, she demanded, “Why did you do this to me? You want me to fail and be miserable don’t you?” Emily looked at her daughter and said “Really Marid? Since when do you know what’s best? I know what’s best better than anyone, especially not that interfering bitch Myra Stanton.” Tearfully Marid said, “How could you do that? Why do you hate me so much?” Icily her mother replied, “Hate you? Don’t flatter yourself. You’re nothing but a manipulative bitch. You lied about me! You’re just like your father, the same kind of liar! Your rein of telling lies is finished; you aren’t going to get away with your lies so easily in a brand new school, without Ms. Myra there to protect you, are you?” Marid just stared at her, before turning away and going to her room. She slammed the door shut, expecting her mother to follow and hit her, but she didn’t care anymore. She lay on her bed sobbing into her pillow for hours, before she fell asleep.

These spiritual lessons are based on Native American shamanism but fit a wide range of interests from yoga and alternative medicine to Bible study and nature hiking. Hands-on exercises, step-by-step instructions for ceremonies, and sketches by the author's wife explain how to clear spaces of unwanted energy, create simple ceremonies, connect with spirit guides and angels, and interpret symbols. An extended discussion tells how to make a medicine wheel that resembles a labyrinth and use it as an engine for distance healing. Additional ceremonies for daily living, healing the earth, and soul retrieval are also described, and the spiritual quest itself is shown to follow the process of choosing a sacred place in nature, finding a sacred place within oneself, and connecting to the inner and outer worlds. Readers are encouraged to keep a notebook about their spiritual growth and refer to the key words and suggestions for internet research that are included.

As she learns more about Hannah's death, the circumstances are eerily similar to their parents' murder. Sarah enlists Paul's help in digging deeper into the murders the police are dismissing as burglaries gone wrong.

Francesco might not know a thing about being a submissive, but for Master Theo, he'd be willing to learn anything. Living on the streets of 1920s Los Angeles and pleasuring men in dark alleys for his survival is not how Francesco had thought his life would turn out. But he's filled with the hope that someday--if he learns how to be a respectable fellow--he can make a home for himself and maybe even find a man he really cares for who also cares for him. In the meantime, he hustles to get by and looks for the good where he can find it. Theo's existence is safe and predictable. He indulges in his perverse nature at his friend Saul's sadomasochism club on Hampton Road and negotiates contracts for the Hollywood players and studios. When an enticing little grifter crosses his path one day, the encounter unnerves him. Not because he gets conned, but because the refreshingly open and unaffected young man holds a mirror up to Theo's own dreary existence. Theo might have plenty of material wealth, but his wealth of spirit can't compare to the delightful Francesco's. Theo rescues Francesco from a dire situation and brings him home. If nothing else, he can at least find the desperate young man some decent employment. Instead, they both find themselves increasingly drawn to each other. But until Theo introduces Francesco to what being a submissive means, he doesn't dare give his heart away. Francesco has yet to discover the secrets that are hidden behind the walls of the Hampton Road Club.

The juxtaposition that is Daisy Rain Martin stems from being raised in a show business family in the bright lights of Las Vegas and simultaneously attempting to navigate her way out of an abusive, ultra-conservative, religious home. She answers the question so many ask: If I were to get in touch with my spiritual side and embark on a path with God, would I have to look like all those... church people? Daisy invites us on her pilgrimage, shares her confessions and assures us that we may overcome adversity to become the embodiment of peace and health and love in a broken world. Young adult to middle aged women will be drawn to this memoir particularly if they have had similar issues with abuse simply because of the abounding hope that is offered throughout. This book will also appeal to people of either gender, especially those working with women and children marginalized by poverty, abuse and domestic violence.

Abbot Christopher Jamison from hit TV series THE MONASTERY, turns his attention to the eternal questions of how to be happy, and why we believe it is so important. Why is 'being happy' such an imperative nowadays? What meaning do people give happiness? In this book Abbot Christopher turns to monastic wisdom to offer answers, and to explain that in essence, happiness is a gift, not an achievement, the fruit of giving and receiving blessings. Following the same accessible and engaging format of FINDING SANCTUARY, Abbot Christopher takes different aspects of happiness, examines them, tells us what monastic wisdom has to say about them, and offers us steps towards our own journey to finding happiness.
