St Mary’s Book Group

The book group next meet on 15th October at Eileen’s house.  The book we will be looking at is Finding Happiness: Monastic Steps for a Fulfilling Life by Abbott Christopher Jamison.

Finding Happiness‘People are searching for happiness, but not everybody knows how to find it.  Our obsession with seeking happiness through consumption and pleasure often leads to very little fulfilment.  In this accessible and engaging book, Abbot Christopher Jamison encourages alternative approaches to our view of happiness.  He turns to monastic wisdom and Benedictine tradition to offer answers to the eternal question: what does it mean to be truly happy?  He also looks in turn at the demons that make us unhappy, providing guidance and generous insight on our search for contentment.’
