THE LANGUAGE OF THE SOUL
Metaphor and Spiritual Direction
Dr Andrew Mayes
How can we describe to others what is happening to us on our spiritual journey? How can we depict the spiritual road that we are taking-experiences of prayer, transitions that we travel through, impediments that we face-and externalize into words the interior experiences? Based on his latest book, Learning the Language of the Soul, Andrew will help us to explore creative and inspirational metaphors for use in spiritual direction.
Dr. Andrew Mayes is currently Spirituality Adviser to the Anglican Diocese of Chichester, where he has also served as director of clergy training. He is the author of six previous books, including the widely-acclaimed Beyond the Edge: Spiritual Transitions for Adventurous Souls.
