Paula Huston is one of the finest spiritual writers alive today. Her books speak to the human heart in such a beautiful, gentle way. She inspires us to climb higher the spiritual mountain, even when the times are treacherous and rocky. In “A Season of Mystery: 10 Spiritual Practices for Embracing a Happier Second Half of Life”, she encourages us to slow down, in order to nurture the relationship God is offering us today. For many of us, it may involve a paradigm shift, but one that is well worth the effort if we choose to enter into it. Paula breaks open each practice found in her book with moments from her own experience. She then gives us practical helps which can transform our everyday lives. Those practices include listening, delighting, lightening, settling, confronting, accepting, appreciating, befriending, generating, blessing. Filled with questions and reflections, this book is perfect for either individual or group study.

From the book description:
We live in a culture that tells us there are few things worse than aging, that we should avoid aging at all costs, and that we must shun death. And yet, no matter how much money we spend on health supplements, no matter how many gurus we consult, the fact remains unchanged: We will grow old.
A Season of Mystery is not intended to be a selection of self-improvement secrets; the goal of Huston’s work is to encourage people in the second half of life to become “ordinary mystics” who are no longer bound by the world’s false ideas on aging but instead be freed by God’s grace to embrace the riches that come only with growing older.
