"In this creative work, Christine Valters Paintner offers us a pilgrimage through the lives of sages, healers, mystics, visionaries, and more--inviting us to feast on their wisdom and explore how their gift of life can illuminate the way for us. This is a wonderful resource and I joyfully recommend it." --Macrina Wiederkehr, O.S.B., Author of Seven Sacred Pauses

"Illuminating the Way combines meditation, poetry, art, and more to reveal the singing heart of our tradition's great wisdom keepers. Jesus has been called the Lord of the Dance--this sumptuous book calls us to join the circle." --Carl McColman, Author of Befriending Silence

"Illuminating the Way generously offers myriad pathways to discover and explore the multiple selves that dwell within each of us. It's a book that will expand you, a real treasure that you will return to again and again." --Colette Lafia, Author of Seeking Surrender

"Christine Valters Paintner creates a vibrant green path--a path I love to walk. In Illuminating the Way, she invites saints and mystics to join us on that path. The Hebrew prophet Miriam, the Celtic monk Brendan, and contemporary writers like Rainer Maria Rilke and Thomas Merton--along with eight others--step out of their books, walk beside us, and do, indeed, illumine the path." --Janet Conner, Author of Writing Down Your Soul
