From the Back Cover
This beautiful and aching world is calling for each of us to claim our participation with open hearts, clear minds, and full intention.
Arriving Here is a book for anyone seeking to make sense of their lived experience. In a series of essays that follow a season of reflection and two years dedicated to leaning into its teachings, Lisa Steele-Maley invites readers into the inner and outer work that has carried her to this particular moment—to here. It is a place of deep awareness, belonging, and continually renewed commitment to family, community, and the earth.
In the powerful tradition of Annie Dillard, John Muir and Rachel Carson, yet with her own unique lyricism, Lisa offers us a precious and wise handbook of both companionship and connection.
~ Jacob Watson, Author of Essence: The Emotional Path to Spirit
Being human is to live out variations on a theme, or a collection of themes.We seek to craft, from the twinkles of insight along the way, a coherent constellation of purpose. That’s what Lisa Steele-Maley has accomplished in Arriving Here. And in sharing her reflections, Lisa invites each of her readers to gaze back, gaze up, gaze all around, and do the same.
