Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In A Monk in the World, Teasdale explores what Griffiths charge has meant for him — to live as a monk outside the monastery, to integrate teachings from the worlds religions with his own Catholic training, to combine his vigorous spiritual practice with the necessities of making a living and pursuing a course of social justice in a big American city—as well as how readers can find their own spiritual path amidst the rigors of everyday life. Along the way, Teasdale explores the real world topics of friendship; time, work, and money; the problem and opportunity of the homeless; a contemplative understanding of suffering; the struggle to promote personal and social change; as well as the as the role of the church and nature in building spiritual understanding.

Building on the success and insights of his first book, The Mystic Heart, Teasdale gives a compelling glimpse of the unique spiritual path he has followed, and how everyone can find their own internal monastery and bring spiritual practice into their busy lives.

Book News Annotation:

Teasdale is a Chicago-based lay monk who combines the traditions of Christianity and Hinduism in the way of Christian Sannyasa. He explains what it means to him to lead a life of activism and teaching outside the monastery.
