'Entering the Castle' is intended as a guide into mysticism. The idea presented in the book is to become mystics without monastaries. This requires answering three key questions: (1) Why was I born? (2) What is my greater purpose in my life? (3) How can I be of service? The Castle spoken of in this book is our inner center - a place where can find sanctuary, peace and guidance. Through contemplation we can access this Castle within. The ideas in this book are based on St. Theresa of Avila's THE INTERIOR CASTLE, where she mentions seven mansions i.e. stages through which the soul passes in its mystical journey to union with the Divine. 'Entering the Castle' gives an inner dimension to our spiritual work that is at times lacking in current spiritual literature, which is more concerned with achievement and prosperity as end goals rather than inner development of the self. So I am glad to come across this book.

I've love love her very early works, before she became this world famous spiritual teacher. You can sense from her voice, a humble, gentle person who had inspired millions of people including myself! Especially her "Spiritual power & spiritual practice". But ever since last year presidential election, Caroline has changed to this sharp tongue, partisan, opinionated political person who writes articles on HuffingtonPost.com and their news paper, criticizing all Republicans parties, candidates or anyone who is not supporting the democrats party because their political views is not the same as hers. I feel that she is not living what she preach! You are an spiritual teacher! You should rise above all these political madness and use your power and inspirational words to bring people together! Especially during this trouble time, instead of clam people's anger & differences on the health care bills that just past, she writes many articles to add the oil into fire to make people more partisan and angry! Caroline, I am so disappointed by the direction you took. I think you were a wonderful spiritual teacher when you just started many years ago, maybe your success and ego has finally got to you! Please bring back the old Caroline Myss we love! Not this political driven, sharp tongue partisan columnist! If you are republican, or not agree with the health care bills that just passed or the direction of our country is heading, go to HuffingtonPost.com and type in the search section of Caroline Myss you'll see what I am talking about! ( http://www.huffingtonpost.com/caroline-myss/are-republican-right-wing_b_516467.html ) Caroline, please stay out of the politics! And use your wisdom and spiritual insights to bring people together not dividing them!

    A compassionate, wise view of the mystical tradition

    Carolyn shares a thoughtful, modern examination of St Teresa of Avila's claasic text.
