Learn how this ancient spiritual practice can transform your relationship with yourself, with others and with God.

"The practice of deep hospitality can help us step into a more vital, vibrant embrace of this great adventure we call life—which includes our relationship with God, however you might define God.... It is an invitation to walk through life with a liberating posture of receptivity, reverence, and generosity."
—from the Introduction

We may think of hospitality as merely being polite to guests, but the ancients understood the profound potential hospitality holds for building and transforming lasting relationships—for binding families together, making strangers into friends, even turning enemies into neighbors.

This practical book provides you with the tools you need to cultivate the spiritual power of invitation and welcome in your life. Guided by Rev. Nanette Sawyer, you will discover the qualities of hospitality—receptivity, reverence and generosity—and how these qualities can significantly deepen your self-understanding as well as your relationships with others and with God. Drawing from sacred texts and spiritual practitioners from all faiths, this book also addresses the major stumbling blocks that prevent you from becoming truly hospitable.

A practical guide to cultivating the spiritual power of invitation and welcome in your life. Discover how the qualities of hospitality can deepen your self-understanding and help you build transforming and lasting relationships with others and with God.
