Meditations with Teresa of Avila: A Journey Into the Sacred Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Born into Spanish nobility in 1515, Teresa entered the monastic life at age 20 and was eventually guided to reform the Carmelite Order, where she introduced the practice of meditation. Megan Don makes Teresas timeless wisdom fully contemporary through translations of Teresas words followed by a practical interpretation and a brief, inviting meditation. Teresa and Don guide readers to explore the reality of the mystical, the voice of God and knowledge of the self, the restlessness of the mind and the care of the body, doubt, loss, intimacy, and more. Don brings modern psychological understanding to Teresas principles and practices, highlighting Teresas sophisticated understanding of the power (and difficulty) of regular prayer and meditation, and her passionate conviction that “the mystery of divine indwelling [is] available to all people.”

Synopsis:

Meditations with Teresa of Avila invites you to explore the depths of your inner being by following the pathway of the beloved mystic Teresa of Avila. Born into Spanish nobility in 1515, Teresa entered the monastic life at twenty and was eventually guided to reform the Carmelite Order. She blended a rich mystical inner life with everyday work in the secular world, and she remains an unparalleled source of inspiration for living deeply and effectively in both realms.

Always concerned with the practical application of her beliefs, Teresa sought to understand what her visions and experiences meant and whether she was doing all she could. Rejected by many of her contemporaries, she struggled against the many male clerics who tried to invalidate her mystical experiences. Her spiritual exploration formed the basis of the prolific body of writing she left to the world.

Megan Don makes Teresas timeless wisdom fully contemporary through translations of Teresas words followed by practical interpretations and brief, inviting meditations. In this award-winning book, Teresa of Avila and Don guide you to explore the voice of the Beloved and knowledge of the self, the restlessness of the mind and the care of the body, doubt, loss, intimacy, and more.
