Event Description: We are living through times of enormous change and transition. Global changes affect our future as a human family on this planet, and also affect our personal lives and choices. Some changes are like childbirth – painful yet ultimately life-giving. Others are potentially destructive. The pattern of breakdown followed by breakthrough runs through the whole of life, and is ultimately a pattern of hope, not despair. Can we trust this pattern in our own lives, and begin to engage in an authentic spirituality of transition?
Margaret is the author of a number of books for 21st century spiritual pilgrims, and spends much of her time ‘on the road’, travelling widely in her itinerant lifestyle. She works ecumenically, across and beyond the traditional denominations and is passionate about making Christian spirituality accessible in everyday life.
Born in Yorkshire, England, Margaret was employed until 2000 in the computer industry as a technical author and since then has devoted herself to writing and to accompanying others on their spiritual journey, through retreats, workshops and days of reflection. She has one grown daughter and two grandchildren and lives in Staffordshire.
