Product Overview

Stories have always been important in our lives. We laugh at the antics of the fool, we are moved by the plight of the serving girl, we travel with the hero on his journey and we know that long ago and far away others listened to the same stories and also laughed and cried. Their underlying message of spiritual transformation is subtle and significant. The stories retold in this book reveal the universality of all human beings, reminding us that we are not alone; they show different aspects of the transformation of spirit that we can all experience through the telling of stories. From many cultures and faith traditions?including Irish, Scottish, English, European, Asian, Indian and Middle Eastern?each, in its own way, teaches us about ourselves, providing us with lessons learned through the fantastic that can be used in the everyday. These tales of transformation contain jewels of wisdom about: creativity and truth, compassion and prayer, using what you have, hospitality, being satisfied with your life, and remaining true to your dreams. Readers of any age will find these stories enlightening, refreshing and deeply satisfying.
