    Sr Stanislas Kennedy

    Sister Stan has a new book called Day by Day and in it are some wise and comforting words to guide us gently through life.

    The book’s meditations allow the reader to move beyond thought and into a place within the reader where they can be still. The meditations help to access an inner silence and a deep stillness. It’s also an invitation to live in the present moment.

    She draws on her own experiences as well as the lives of other influential figures, such as: Abbott Mark Patrick Hederman, leading psychologist and founder of Headstrong, Dr Tony Bates, poet Brendan Kennelly, and producer/director Lelia Doolan.  

    There are writers, poets, visionaries from the past and present, some Sister Stan knows, others she doesn’t know. Some are colleagues, friends or family who helped and enabled her to encounter everyday epiphanies. They are people who have helped her to live in the moment.

    There are 9 essays in the book each one addressing a different theme.
