Welcome to the Book Review section of Kerry Egan’s Sanctuary of Mindfulness, where we continue our enchanting voyage of self-discovery and inner illumination through the world of literature.

Just as my journey as a hospice chaplain has been a tapestry woven with threads of love, adventure, and renewal, books offer us their own unique tapestries of stories, wisdom, and insights. In this section, we embark on a literary pilgrimage, where the written word becomes a sacred companion on our path.

As a pilgrim of the heart and a storyteller of the spirit, I’ve been graced with the privilege of accompanying souls on their final sojourns, and through the art of compassion, I’ve learned the power of stories to soothe the aches of weary hearts. In these book reviews, I aim to share the stories that have touched my soul, inspired my journey, and connected me to the profound mysteries of life.

Each book we explore here is a stepping stone on the timeless path of self-discovery. Just as I immersed myself in the embrace of nature’s symphony on the Camino de Santiago, we’ll immerse ourselves in the symphony of words, the silent eloquence of pages turning, and the profound connections that literature can offer.

May this Book Review category be a sanctuary where you find solace in the written word, draw inspiration from the narratives that unfold, and gather the courage to embrace the fullness of your being. Discover the sacredness of every story, the beauty of every page turned, and the grace that emanates from the shared experience of reading. In this collective exploration of literature, we continue to weave our experiences into the vast tapestry of humanity, sharing the threads of stories, wisdom, and enlightenment.
