Fi Sutherland – Coming Home
Awakening through the stillness into the living light
Foreword by Meredith Little, Cofounder, School of Lost Borders
"In following Fi’s story, and the wonderful teaching on how to access
our heart and Divine nature, we begin to uncover our own story of wholeness
and connection. Fi is one of those who guides us to question our limited reality, and
open to our spiritual nature, which is a birthright of all humanity, and all of life."
Supporting a Spiritual Journey
Julie Herron, teacher, New Zealand –
It was truly a delight to hear Fi speak about her experiences so thoughtfully and sincerely in her book launch. Fi's empathy and honest desire to share what she knows for the good of all people was very evident. I think Fi's book is uniquely different from many other books about how people can “improve their lives”. So many books tell us what to do, or what we can try, without actually referring to the author’s personal experience that makes the practices “lived and real”. This is where Fi's book is different. Throughout the book Fi refers to the “lived and real.” This makes the book accessible and appealing to: the general audience who wish to “improve their life”; those who read it as a fascinating autobiographical work; and, those who are seeking an understanding and a guide to awakening.
To navigate and survive in the world, we create the ego. Functioning like a mask, the ego is our protective shell with which we meet external reality. This is healthy and necessary up to a point—until we believe the mask is all we are. When we realise that there is more to us than the mask, an inner search begins. “Who am I?”
Personal and spiritual development is about seeking the answer to that question by slowly letting the ego mask fall away, step by step. At the same time, we connect with our authentic Self, which supports the inner enquiry. This connection may take us beyond the ego and its worldview into a new and wider understanding of ourselves and life.
Coming Home: Awakening through the Stillness into the Living Light tells the story of my spiritual awakening out of the ingrained behaviour patterns, thinking, and habits that controlled and directed my life for thirty-eight years, until my first wake-up call at a cinema in 1995. Through the book's five sections and twenty-five chapters, I take the reader on a journey of increasing self-awareness and insight activating the mind, body, spirit, and heart. This knowledge, and the practices and exercises included, are based on my personal experience of awakening, my training as a therapeutic counsellor, my clinical observations with clients, and my awareness of others as a meditation and spiritual teacher.
"I could not stop reading Fi's book.
I read it in one sitting and I will go back and read it more slowly a second time. It is beautiful. In this book
Fi has put something into the world that was never there before, and I thank her for doing that."
(Betty O'Donnell, Therapeutic Counsellor)
