Title: Finding Sanctuary: Monastic Steps for Everyday Life
Year: 2007
Publisher: Phoenix

As featured in the TV series, The Monastery. The first part of the book looks at the origins of our 'busy-ness' and then offers 'a way into sanctuary - a door through which we can enter sacred space'. He tells us that 'before he could offer sanctuary he had to find it'. The book is very well structured, based on the rules of St Benedict and offers ways to apply these monastic steps to everyday life. See their website:
