This resource for spiritual directors explores how we can cooperate with God in our own spiritual growth. Using Biblical imagery of the natural world, Christopher Chapman explores four recurring patterns of spiritual development:
· Rooted and Grounded: finding stability through prayer and humility;
· Emergence: recognising and responding to God through 'holy daring';
· The Struggle Towards Abundance: discerning and overcoming obstacles to growth;
· Fruitfulness and Fall: finding fulfillment in giving and receiving.
The material is also ideal for personal reading during a retreat or as a resource for those receiving spiritual direction.

2009 and 2016. He is a former Catholic priest, and has an extensive background

of who they are and what they have to give’.
