Cormac Stagg, an Irish rebel ravaged by alcoholism and broken by depression, stumbles upon an old, shaky-handed mystic… and thus begins his lifelong journey into a radically inclusive, game-changing spirituality of the heart.
In this moving and humorous account of his unlikely transformation, Cormac shares insights about his search for the humble-hearted place where he finds inner peace and freedom. Along the way, you’ll meet an alcoholic nun with profound, hard-won wisdom about surrender; a gang of Jesuit mystics with a treasure trove of suggestions about the spiritual life; and “the wise ones,” extraordinary women who live and breathe humility, kindness, and compassion.
Written from the heart, for the heart, this memoir is for anyone who seeks a path to personal change and a better way of being in the world. Above all, these pages contain hope for those who desire an up-close and personal relationship with the living God, the One who dwells deep within and gives love and life to everything.
