About the Book:
Lucidly and beautifully written, awakening to Sacred Presence weaves a personal and spiritual narrative from the author’s eighty years, living part-time as a Byzantine hermit and working as a spiritual director, community leader, and therapist. Within these pages lies the gentle and humble invitation to readers to awaken to Sacred Presence around and within them, to claim and exercise their own wisdom, and actualize their gifts as offerings to the world. Alongside poetry, prayer, journal entries, storytelling, and personal anecdotes, Kostynuik provides exercises and insight to develop psychic muscles: trusting inner knowing, embracing aloneness, moving through grief, and extending forgiveness, among other lessons.
Doreen D. Kostynuik is a writer, educator, therapist, and spiritual director to individuals, religious congregations, and parishes. Doreen has been a significant influence to the life of Cathy AJ Hardy. Soul Care is pleased to offer this inspirational writing here.
