The Soul's Slow Ripening Twelve Celtic Practices for Seeking the Sacred, by Christine Painter, offers a way to look at the question as to what God wants for your life. Through study of monasticism and her immersion into Celtic spirituality, Painter learned of the Celtic Way or path of spirituality which offers discernment through focusing on the environment rather than the intellect. In The Soul's Slow Ripening she divides this "way" into 12 practices which allows what she calls the "slow ripening of the soul".

Each chapter starts with the story of a particular Irish saint who range from the familiar Patrick or Brigid to the less familiar Ita or Ciaran and suggests a particular discernment that the life of the saint illustrates. The discernments explore the call of dreams, the importance of thresholds, learning by the heart, soul friends and the wisdom of the landscape and the seasons, among others. She suggests taking contemplative walks that allow you to think about suggested themes and ideas that may open you to creative writing. This may be an alternative path of spirituality that will help you discover and become more aligned with creativity and wholeness.
