I became increasingly aware of a group of people attempting to reconcile a resistance to domesticating their imaginations while possessing a deep longing to be accepted and to belong
FRANKLIN, Conn. (PRWEB) October 20, 2016
Paul Dunion EdD returns to the publishing scene with a new book, “Seekers: Finding Our Way Home” (published by Archway Publishing). Evocative and eye-opening, this spiritual and philosophical guide is an invitation to inquisitive and imaginative seekers to embrace their longing for a home while also making their seeking a lived experience.
“Seekers: Finding Our Way Home” offers a vivid portrayal of seekers as pilgrims questing for home. Seekers are threshold dwellers, longing for a dual existence in the familiar and the unknown. Home takes on both an ancient definition of the word – “a place to linger” – and a living expression of making peace with non-permanence. This exploration presents an account of seeking that strengthens a facility for identifying where to linger and how to move in order to avoid spiritual homelessness. It also offers concrete guidelines for seekers’ self-care. Readers of “Seekers: Finding Our Way Home” will gain the know-how to strengthen their capacity for presence, imagination and enchantment.
“I became increasingly aware of a group of people attempting to reconcile a resistance to domesticating their imaginations while possessing a deep longing to be accepted and to belong,” Dunion on his inspiration in writing the book. “I want readers to see some part of themselves they have forgotten in the words and reclaim it, revitalizing their capacity to dream and live in a larger story.”
A snippet from “Seekers” reads:
Seekers are threshold dwellers. They live at their current experience of reality while welcoming unknown possibility. Seekers are not meant to be homeless. They can find their way home, learning where to linger before allowing their wonder to yield new vision. Soulfully holding both acceptance and longing, seekers can learn to rest in the embrace of what is asking to be born.
