Watershed: Turning points on the spiritual road by Michael Ford
All of us can be suddenly confronted with a decisive moment of difficulty or change. But fear prevents many of us from seizing the day. This is a book about facing those life-changing experiences that define the future, and how the stories of others can inspire us when we need psychological and spiritual resources to cope. In this text, written for spiritual seekers of any age, Ford draws on his extensive experience of interviewing people at the turning point of their lives. Through encounters with a fascinating range of people, from Bruno Tonioli to Juliet Binoche, from the Benedictine prioress who gave Elvis Presley his first on-screen kiss, to a father grieving for his son killed in the Omagh bombing, Ford shows how in the twists and turns of people's lives it is possible to discern moments of light even in dark and hopeless times. He also reveals how he faced and accepted his own biggest watershed.
