Over my life I have written books, articles, plays and poetry on a wide range of subjects. Many people have found these useful or inspiring. Even if my words help only one person, then all the effort of writing the book has been worthwhile as far as I am concerned.It is the way I reach out to you. We meet on the pages of my book.

Good Living in Hard Times:
The Art of Contentment

Author: Stafford Whiteaker
Publisher: O-Books, Alresford, 2012
ISBN 13: 9781780993164
Paperback: 296 pages

Good Living in Hard Times explains how you can get the best from the life you have now and find a peacefulness that no bank or politician or credit card company can take away from you. I discuss those values which have stood the test of time as benchmarks for living, such as fresh air, sound sleep, eating real food, sexuality, laughter, and hospitality. Self-reliance, personal dignity, and economic reality are the major themes. I do not offer quick fix solutions or self-development practices which soon fall out of use because they have no attachment to real life. I believe we can discover a lasting union with our neighbours, our planet and ourselves. When we live this way, we not only find deep contentment, but we contribute to the common good of our society.

“Whiteaker’s belief in the importance of spiritual harmony and peaceful integration of mind and body is often inspiring and always compelling.” Daily Express

Getting in touch with our spiritual self and practising the sacred in our everyday lives is our birthright. It is essential for our physical, mental and emotional health. However, few of us know where to look, and also how it will help if we manage to catch a glimpse of the true self at the heart of our being. In this book, I offer ten gateways to letting spirituality flourish in our lives. These can be explored no matter where or who we are – Christian, Buddhist, New Age or of no particular persuasion. Included is the use of silence, meditation, mindfulness, prayer and the arts of loving, dreaming and celebration.
