The Soul Aflame: A Modern Book of Hours with Other Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Following upon the success of their bestselling book The Soul of the World, Cousineau and Lawton offer another dazzling collection of inspirational words and images — "a myriad of stained glass window views" — into the mystery of the creative soul's relationship with the divine.

Adopting the framework of the medieval and meditative classic Book of Hours, 56 thought-provoking passages from sources as diverse as Gautama Buddha to Aretha Franklin, Nikos Kazantzakis to Annie Dillard, James Hillman to Hildegard von Bingen, including the world's sacred traditions, are juxtaposed with evocative color photographs from around the globe. Poets, mystics, filmmakers, musicians, dancers, scientists, cooks, painters, and other creative artists reflect on the burning passion of the soul.

Synopsis:

Stunning photos from around the world--from swirling Sufi dancers to regal Native American shamans--combine with passages from a wide variety of spiritual writers. 56 color photos.
