‘Creation spirituality is not a newly invented path, but for twentieth century Westerners  it is a newly discovered path.’
                                                               Matthew Fox   

‘To be truly reconciled is to see the Light

at the heart of the other.’   

                                                 John Philip Newell

'I believe we need… a generous-minded, big-hearted faith that will create a welcoming spiritual home for today’s postmodern pilgrims, those black sheep and prodigals who... hanker after space for a soul to belong.’
                                                                    Dave Tomlinson

'When we devote no time to the inner life, we lose the habit of soul… The deeper questions about who we are and what we are here for visit us less and less. If we allow time for soul, we will come to sense its dark and luminous depth. If we fail to acquaint ourselves with soul, we will remain strangers in our own lives.’
                                                                             John O’Donohue

The practice of rest

I’ve always believed that God shines through all of humanity. Just as the sun breaks up  and flies and reflects in every direction,
when the spirit of light shines through the diamond of 
humanity, every voice of praise, in every spiritual language, comes from and goes back to that same source of light.'

                                                                        Beth Nielsen Chapman

‘Within each tradition, unsettling but needed voices are arising - prophetic voices, we might call them, voices of change, hope,  imagination and new beginnings.’
                                                                        Brian McLaren

‘When religion makes itself God, when religion gets between the soul and God, when religion demands what the spirit deplores - a division of peoples, diminishment of the self, and closed-mindedness - religion becomes the problem. Then,
spirituality is the only valid answer to the cry of the 
soul for the kind of life that makes life possible.’ 

                                                                                Joan Chittister

'To travel an interspiritual path is to travel through the wilderness with open hands and a courageous spirit. It is to navigate with the heart and a book of prayers from every faith tradition that ever uttered a sacred phrase in any language. To travel an interspiritual path is to drop to our knees in the presence of Love wherever we encounter it, and to disarm our hearts the minute we have the impulse to otherize a faith we do not understand.’  
                                                                                     Mirabai Starr

'Compassion asks us to go where it hurts, to enter into the places of pain, to share in brokenness, fear, confusion, and anguish. Compassion challenges us to cry out with those in misery, to mourn with those who are lonely, to weep with those in tears. Compassion requires us to be weak with the weak, vulnerable with the vulnerable, and powerless with the powerless. Compassion means full immersion in the condition of being human.’                                                                                                 Henri Nouwen

‘The evolution of an individual’s spirituality is a mysterious and intimate matter. It originates In the heart, in deep stirrings that may only be beginning to form… We are created for the spiritual journey.’                                  

                                                                 William Teasdale  

‘Jesus never wrote a book, never created a creed, never started a church and never intended to begin a new religion. He simply demonstrated the way of love - the golden rule in any religious tradition - and invited people to join him in that.’

                                                                        Dave Tomlinson
