In accord with Christian monastic traditions and beliefs--but also drawing on a wide variety of other sources--this quiet invitation to soul renewal offers complete instructions for creating a three-day spiritual retreat for individuals or small groupsFrom Booklist:
First, this book is a simple, practical framework for a three-day "monastic" retreat. That is enough to commend it to many readers. But it is also an insightful introduction to Benedictine spirituality, written by a Benedictine oblate who teaches religion and literature at Smith College and Wesleyan University. Each day of the retreat is structured around one of the three Benedictine vows: stability, obedience, and conversio. Each day involves Benedictine practices of prayer, work, and sacred reading. The Recollected Heart will be of value to readers seeking a retreat handbook, but it is also a valuable addition to the growing body of contemporary popular appreciations of St. Benedict's rule and--more generally--to the literature of spirituality and the conversation within which it is nurtured.
