The Walker Collection
This is my third anthology of stories. All six stories have a Christmas theme. But Christmas to me is a time of wonderment, so I think of these really as stories of wonder. They all have an element of magic to them, but then so do our lives. So really these stories are about who we are when we look beneath the surface of our lives and of our everyday world. They each arise from my sense of who we are as human beings and as spiritual beings. At Christmas time, we may come closest to touching the wonder of our deeper selves, but this experience is available to us any time, not just once a year. My hope is that whenever you read them, they will brighten your heart and bring delight to your day. May you experience in reading them all the joy I felt in writing them. David Spangler
Rhythms and Hues: Poems of the Beloved
This is a book of poems born of the realization in the moment of the nearness of the Beloved and the reality of our Oneness with that supreme, sacred Presence and the joy that realization gives. When David Spangler was the co-director of the Findhorn Foundation Community in the early 1970's he was asked to come up with a spontaneous, short saying for the Sanctuary to open the time of meditation. He attuned to and expressed what he felt was the spiritual rhythm of that day, hence the name "Rhythms" for these short poems. They are songs of joy and remembrance of who we are.
Reflections on the Christ

May it be a blessing to you. 164 pages.
