Book Nook: To Hear the Forest Sing - Some Musings on the Divine

To Hear the Forest Sing: Some Musings on the Divine by Margaret Dulaney is a collection of truly beautiful and inspirational essays on peace, faith and finding joy, beauty and stillness in the chaos of life. I recently had a chance to review this beautiful book, which can provide a wonderful break during our crazy schedule.

The number of people who are spiritual but not religious, or religious but not regular churchgoers, is on the increase. People don't want to be confined to a certain box, like many churches sometimes do. This is the perfect book for anyone who wants to find a way to mindful living, whether that's in a church or outside of it. Peace, joy, beauty, and faith - these are universal to all people who have any belief system, even belief that there is no God.

It's a beautifully written book, excellent for personal meditation.

Margaret Dulaney is a playwright and essayist, and founder of the spoken word websiteListenwell.org. Culled from a lifetime’s study of the ancients and mystics of all traditions, Margaret’s writings employ the ideas of Emerson, Lao Tzu, Hafiz, George MacDonald, Richard Rohr, Emanuel Swedenborg, Lorna Byrne, Marcus Aurelius, Shakespeare, Rudolph Steiner and many others.  

In 2010 Margaret founded the open faith, spoken word website ListenWell.Org. Each month Listen Well posts one ten-minute, professionally recorded essay designed to puzzle out a spiritual theme through story and metaphor. Listeners vary from practicing Buddhists to open-minded Christians, from those struggling to find a working tradition to those who are happy with their practice. Margaret records her writings at Maggie’s Farm recording studios in Bucks County Pennsylvania.
