One man’s quest to finding his healing place!
Searching for a residence in nature which he can call his own, Dermod Judge finally finds his healing place where he will have respite from the quotidian pressures of life.
On his journey he reveals a unique insight into many aspects of the human condition with examples of writers, artists, architects and naturalists who, throughout the ages, sought ways to change things for the better.
Along the way, he delves into aspects of life which, all too often, need healing. From sin to unnatural divisions foisted upon the world. From the scarcity of water to intimidating cathedrals. From the challenges of white-water canoeing to the vicissitudes of cooking a full breakfast on an open fire without breaking any of the fried eggs.
