The Practice of Finding

Seeking is in vogue these days. Many of us are continually, even obsessively striving and seeking—for something or other. But are we ever satisfied? What is enough? 

Holly Whitcomb presents the spiritual practice of finding as the antidote to chronic seeking and as the doorway to a grateful awareness of having received enough. She reflects on wisdom distilled by the “finders”—poets, playwrights, psychologists, and theologians—and derived from her own experience. 

When we engage in finding, we recognize with humility and wonder that the universe contains possibilities beyond our power to imagine. The Practice of Finding is an inspiring guide to that journey of discovery.
