BREATHING SPACES

Author Mark Davis, photography by Ged Barrow

A beautifully presented book full of helpful advice for facilitators and group leaders. Distilled from nearly twenty years practical experience, the author offers a way of accompanying people gathered to explore the spiritual dimension to life. Built around a profound respect for the life experience of participants, ‘Breathing Spaces’ describes how to create an appropriate environment for personal reflection and spiritual conversation. While tailored to a particular small group process the advice given here will be of value to anyone leading small groups with a spiritual intention.

‘Spiritual conversation is absolutely vital today. It enables health and healing, discovery, and deepening understanding to take place among us. Through it both our individual lives, and our lives together in many complex communities and contexts, are enriched and transformed. In this beautiful book Mark Davis does what he does better than anyone else I know – simply and profoundly opening up a way whereby world-changing conversation might take place.’
Martyn Atkins, President of the Methodist Conference 2007-8
General Secretary of the Methodist Church of Great Britain

 

‘In this excellent book we find welcome ways to speak together from the heart, to listen to the hearts of others, and to listen to the heartbeat of God.’
Peter Doyle ,
Roman Catholic Bishop of Northampton

 

 ‘It is with great joy that I recommend this beautifully presented introduction to the facilitation of faith-sharing groups. From personal experience, spiritual conversation in small groups has grown dear to my heart and because of this my hope is that ‘Breathing Spaces’ will grow into an indispensable aid to all facilitators and group leaders.’
Jim Noonan OCD, Provincial Superior
Anglo-Irish Province of the Discalced Carmelite Friars
