This is an extraordinary story told by an ordinary woman, Eileen Caddy, one of the three founders of the Findhorn Foundation. The books that have flowed from her inspiration have drawn multitudes to the Findhorn Community.
In this new, expanded edition of her autobiography, her story has been updated to record the events – and emotions – of the past fifteen years. She emerges as a powerful elderwoman who frees herself from the aura of her charismatic ex-husband Peter whom she still loves. In doing so, she learns the true nature of forgiveness, overcoming the issues of jealousy, hatred and doubt involved in the break-up of a marriage for which she had, under God’s guidance, sacrificed everything.
Readers will be struck by the analogy with the biblical Job, how someone who has lost everything, wealth, position, family, can yet have them restored by God. In her own person, Eileen Caddy, divinely ordinary as she describes herself, has pushed the limits of the ordinary person’s experience to the very borders of the Kingdom of God. With a new postscript.
Eileen Caddy was recognised as one of the major spiritual teachers of our times on the TV programme “The God List”.
Flight into Freedom was originally published in 1988. This new edition contains an additional 24-page chapter covering the later years.
