Take a Contemplative Weekend Retreat Without Leaving Home

April 1, 2009

Notre Dame, IN—The Recollected Heart, recently updated and back in print, is the essential guide for incorporating the pattern of The Rule of St. Benedict into a spiritually refreshing retreat—without leaving home. Written over fifteen hundred years ago and freshly interpreted by such contemporary writers as Kathleen Norris, Joan Chittister, Esther de Waal, and Macrina Wiederkehr, The Rule and its model of monastic spirituality have shaped our world and provided countless pilgrims a method of prayer that never goes out of style.

Called a “mandatory read” by Deep Economy author Bill McKibben, The Recollected Heart is Philip Zaleski’s prescription for renewing the spirit in the midst of a hectic life and a chaotic world. The book prepares readers for leading or participating in a powerful monastic retreat with stories, prayers, and practical tips on spiritual goal-setting. Zaleski’s warmth and guidance ensure that readers will come away with a renewed sense of self and spiritual wellness.
