The Quiet Path

Contemplative Practices for Daily Life

Andrew Rudd

The Quiet Path

The Quiet Path is a book for the walker, or the armchair traveller, the clear-sighted tourist, or the bewildered wanderer. Blending reflection and poetry, it shows how the simple practice of walking can become a quiet path of wonder, and how a brief pause in a busy day can turn into contemplation.

It explores how the ordinary practices of walking and noticing, recognizing and writing can help us discover depth and spirituality in everything we encounter and find a deeper awareness of a Presence in all things.

This book is not about the big idea, the motorway, the A-road, the bypass. It's about snickets, byways, bridleways and gentle lines across the map. Every page is a signpost pointing down a quiet path, ready for you to take a walk through the landscape of the heart.
