The Harbour Within

A Book of Simple Spirituality

By Sister Consilio

  • Hardback
  • £14.99

An inspiring book of down-to-earth spirituality for anyone searching for a sense of peace in today's world

In today's busy world, we can get caught up with the worries and stresses of life. We live in our heads, as we move at lightning pace from one thing to the next.
Here, in The Harbour Within, Sister Consilio of Cuan Mhuire suggests how we can live happier and more peaceful lives by learning to live from the soul instead of our heads.
From a seven-day guide to living at soul level, to thoughts and inspirations to carry you through difficult times, The Harbour Within shows us how we can discover a place of peace, unconditional love and joy - a harbour within.

'When we move out of our heads and begin to live at soul level, we open ourselves to a life with unconditional love: one that strives to reach beyond thought, expectation, emotion and feeling' Sister Consilio

Biographical Notes

Sister Consilio was born in 1937 in Brosna, County Kerry. She was one of seven children and her upbringing in Kerry with her parents and brothers and sisters had a profound effect on her faith, establishing in her a spirituality which has carried her through life.
After training as a nurse and midwife, Sister Consilio joined the Sisters of Mercy in Athy, County Kildare at the age of twenty-two. While working in St Vincent's Hospital in Athy, she came into contact with many 'road men' - men who used to travel round with no home to call their own. It was through meeting the 'road men' that Sister Consilio had the idea to provide a place of safety and love for people with no home. There are now five Cuan Mhuire rehabilitation centres throughout Ireland providing help and treatment for those in addiction.
Sister Consilio still works at the Cuan Mhuire centres, helping those in need.

The 50 Francis Street Photographer

Suzanne Behan
Authors:
Suzanne Behan

From the 1950s to the 1990s, John Walsh ran his photography business out of a small shop on 50 Francis Street in inner city Dublin. For over forty years, he took thousands of photos on all aspects of Dublin life - funerals, communions, weddings, christening, concerts, and events. Here in this collection, for the first time ever, the images from the 50s and 60s are brought together with the words of his granddaughter Suzanne Behan to give us a unique and nostalgic look of an integral part of changing city. From religious processions and Dublin traditions, to when women drank in the snug and the 'good suit' came in and out of the pawn shop when needed, The 50 Francis Street Photographer is a collection of stunning, original photographs, a fascinating social history and celebration of people and places.

Time Pieces

John Banville, Paul Joyce
Authors:
John Banville, Paul Joyce

'If you're interested in Dublin, or if you're interested in the novelist John Banville, or if you're interested in radiantly superb sentences about whatever - I'm all three - then Time Pieces: A Dublin Memoir is a book you'll not be able to put down' The Guardian'A trove of arresting imagery, from the lushly poetic to the luridly absurd ... utterly delightful' Irish Times'Delicious ... Banville's soarings, like a hawk's, are both wild and comprehensive, taking in everything and imagining more' New York TimesFor the young John Banville, Dublin was a place of enchantment and yearning. Each year, on his birthday - the 8th of December, Feast of the Immaculate Conception - he and his mother would journey by train to the capital city, passing frosted pink fields at dawn, to arrive at Westland Row and the beginning of a day's adventures that included much-anticipated trips to Clery's and the Palm Beach ice-cream parlour. The aspiring writer first came to live in the city when he was eighteen. In a once grand but now dilapidated flat in Upper Mount Street, he wrote and dreamed and hoped. It was a cold time, for society and for the individual - one the writer would later explore through the famed Benjamin Black protagonist Quirke - but underneath the seeming permafrost a thaw was setting in, and Ireland was beginning to change.Alternating between vignettes of Banville's own past, and present-day historical explorations of the city, Time Pieces is a vivid evocation of childhood and memory - that 'bright abyss' in which 'time's alchemy works' - and a tender and powerful ode to a formative time and place for the artist as a young man. Accompanied by images of the city by photographer Paul Joyce.

Uniforms call it in as a slam-dunk domestic. Except when Conway takes a good look at the victim's face, she realises she's seen her somewhere before. And suddenly the conviction that there's a different answer takes her breath away.This is the case she imagined. Precision-cut and savage, lithe and momentous. But you can beat one killer.
