Spirits in Spacesuits


Books by Fr. Seán O'Laoire, PhD


What Your Life Is Telling You about Who You Are and Why You're Here

Why? BookDo you wonder what your true path in life is? We each have a purpose and a mission. However, uncovering this purpose can be challenging. If you are like most, you have probably asked yourself, “Why am I here?” But where do you turn for answers? Why? is a seamless blending of spirituality, evidence-based psychology, and practical exercises that will help you uncover your unique purpose. While tired, old traditions may tell you that you should avoid pain, seek pleasure, and pursue power in order to gain happiness, this book will show you how even pain can play an important part in helping you grow. After all, we are here to see, to know, and to gather whatever wisdom our life offers, and to make use of that wisdom as our soul matures. By looking to your past and present experiences, you can discover your life’s true meaning, and gain knowledge and awareness of yourself at the deepest level.

Spirits in Spacesuits:


A Manual for Everyday Mystics

Spirits in Spacesuits Book by Fr. Sean O'Laoire, PhDThis writing is a spiritual guide to the mystical core of the ancient scriptural traditions. It will help its readers cross-fertilize the great spiritual teachings of the East and the West, and, also, let seekers with a Christian background reclaim their own tradition. It comes from the tongue of a story-teller-priest who spent his childhood steeped in the mythology of Ireland and another 14 years immersed in the folklore of East Africa. Science, psychology, history and humor are all part of this beautiful tapestry. Read it and see that there is a Buddha sitting in meditation upon every water lily and Christ consciousness at the core of the entire Earth-experiment.

Souls on Safari

A Guided Tour of Mystical Wisdom

Souls on SafariThis text Is a guided tour, a safari, into the mystical wisdom that has undergirded the search of all peoples and all cultures through all time for their birthright, which is nothing less than remembering that all life is God's ecstatic encore to the Big Bang. It retains much of the flavor of the storytellers of the Ireland of the 1950's among whom the author grew up; and of the oral tradition of Africa where he spent 14 years as a priest. With an undergraduate degree in Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Physics, and a doctorate in Psychology, he very deftly manages to address even the most complex and esoteric of topics in a manner which is both intelligible and entertaining.

A Sensible God

Stories and Scriptures of Science and Psychology

A Sensible GodThis tapestry combines theology, wisdom, poetry and passion, from a Celtic Soul, a scientific mind and a poetic heart. The Big Bang was the sound of God laughing uproariously at the wonder of His latest creation. And since the main difference between fanaticism and passion is a sense of humor, this volume has plenty to laugh about. It comes from the tongue of a story-teller priest who spent his childhood steeped in the mythology of Ireland and another 14 years immersed in the folklore of East Africa. Buy on Amazon.com
