Summary

Arising out of many years of giving workshops and retreats on the theme, Ian Adams explores simple spiritual practices that will enable us to live with imagination, adventure and generosity and to keep our balance in life, even when things threaten to overwhelm us. Running Over Rocks offers a series of 25 down-to-earth spiritual strategies for everyday living that can help us not just to cope, but to see the difficulties that might otherwise derail us as fresh opportunities to let the God of the unexpected come in and transform us. Ian Adams draws on the life-changing possibilities of the Parables of Jesus and the Beatitudes which upend our usual theories of success and well being. The wisdom and work of monastics and contemplatives, activists and artists, and all who are trying to reshape the world for good today are generously shared here.
