The Harbour Within
A Book of Simple Spirituality
By Sister Consilio
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
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.
