About the Author

Diane Jackson is originally from Northern Ireland. She worked in theatre, event management, and as a researcher and writer before becoming a mum to three daughters. She lives in Dublin, Ireland with her family and recently gained a masters in applied spirituality, from which this book was born. She is by now a veteran of the school gate, and yet knows there is still much to be learned there about the ways in which God is present in the practice of encounter.


"With compassionate insight and the wisdom of experience Diane reveals the potential spiritual depth of an everyday activity. The school gate is a unique site of repeated micro-engagements between individuals, over a long number of years. Like so many other unremarkable areas of life, when it is approached with attentiveness and intention a deep transformative presence can emerge in this everyday experience."

--Bernadette Flanagan, author of Embracing Solitude

"Spirituality at the School Gate makes an important and timely contribution to the growing field of motherhood/spirituality studies. The author clearly shows how the mundane and ordinary activities are sacred spaces where the presence of God can be met. Our entire culture is in need of true spiritual community at these times. This book shows how crucial mothers' voices and experiences are in the everyday spiritual encounters with their community."

--Noelia Molina, author of Motherhood, Spirituality and Culture
