Overview

For the monk or nun inside everyone...a spiritual guide!

There is a part of each of us that is a monk or a mystic. We yearn for perfect peace yet live our lives far removed from traditional monasteries. Yet most of us would not want to give up our personal and spiritual freedom to join monastic life.

We seek wholeness but realize that wholeness is not possible without sacredness. Sacred life takes root in solitude, in the time we take to develop a relationship with our inner life —in the kind of setting a monastery would offer.

Monastery Without Walls speaks to the monk or mystic within us. It affirms our place in the sacred silence of solitude and inner reflection, showing how even everyday life is filled with opportunities to live fully in the world—as if it were a holy monastery. Here we learn to live within the limits as well as the spirit of everyday life, how to appreciate our most human self as the path to explore the divine.

Here we encounter a world that is clearly available to us, a world filled with nothing less than the gift of sacred silence within the monastery without walls.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Davis provides an excellent New Age approach to spirituality, to developing the interior disciplines of silence, meditation, and prayer and expressing them in the outer daily life of family, work, and service. A wide variety of pathways (e.g., respect, listening, feelings, commitment, and peace); practices (e.g., spiritual, marriage, and personal vows, solitudes, dreams, fasting, guides, and angels); and human issues (e.g., fear, survival, self-importance, loneliness, patience, resistance, suffering, and death) are considered. The book ends by situating the individual or soul within a spiritual galaxy that is spacious but undefined--so that those in various traditions, or outside them, may feel at home.
