Vowing at an early age “to be a poet or nothing at all,” Hermann Hesse rebelled against formal education, focusing on a rigorous program of independent study that included literature, philosophy, art, and history. One result of these efforts was a series of novels that became counterculture bibles that remain widely influential today. Another was a body of evocative spiritual poetry. Published for the first time in English, these vivid, probing short works reflect deeply on the challenges of life and provide a spiritual solace that transcends specific denominational hymns, prayers, and rituals. The Seasons of the Soul offers valuable guidance in poetic form for those longing for a more meaningful life, seeking a sense of homecoming in nature, in each stage of life, in a renewed relationship with the divine. Extensive quotations from his prose introduce each theme addressed in the book: love, imagination, nature, the divine, and the passage of time. A foreword by Andrew Harvey reintroduces us to a figure about whom some may have believed everything had already been said. Thoughtful commentary throughout from translator Ludwig Max Fischer helps readers understand the poems within the context of Hesse’s life. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Born in the midst of the London Blitz in 1940, Cynthia Redfern came of age in post-war Britain. Here she learned the value of independence, hard work, friendship, and family. They would all contribute to each season of her life. Full of vivid detail, "Seasons of the Soul" shares Cynthia's unusual life story. Even though the road was often rocky and some seasons offered more challenges than others, Cynthia's determination to keep her integrity intact saw her through. In an easy, conversational style, she relates her childhood years, remembering her grandfather, the boy she befriended at age six (a friendship that lasted sixty-four years), and the house she lived in for nearly twenty years. With unflinching candor, Cynthia describes her loss of innocence as she was sexually abused for three years by a much older boy, a tragedy that would forever affect her. She describes her life as a teenager; her travels through Europe; her early relationships; her marriage to her husband, David; and their subsequent move to Canada. As the years passed, Cynthia became a mother, a farm wife, an entrepreneur, and, eventually, a grandmother. Each season provided its share of joys and challenges, molding her into the person she is today. Inspiring and heartwarming, this memoir tells a story of courage and commitment to living the best life possible.

Wintertime—cold, desolate, cut off from God Spring—reawakening life within Summer—lush, full growth, warmth and caring Autumn—contentment, a sense of waiting. Each soul has its seasons. Sometimes one slips back into a season of winter—cold, out of sequence. But when God dwells within, the soul will soon thaw and bring forth blossoms of glory. Each individual has the capacity to grow wider, deeper, taller, more colorful. Root yourself in God’s Word, open yourself to a closer relationship, and grow in personal faith in your Creator.
