This is a vibrant spoken-word audio program by Tessa Bielecki, Mother Abbess of the Spiritual Life Institute, a Carmelite community with hermitages in Colorado, Nova Scotia, and Ireland. She is an expert on the 16th century mystic Teresa of Avila who in her life and in her writings delineated the different stages of spiritual growth. Among her most inspired legacies was "spousal prayer" in which God is loved and related to as spouse.

Bielecki, who shares Teresa of Avila's zest for life, is an ideal tutor in this ritual of divine intimacy. She's a creative, enthusiastic, and articulate spokesperson for Christian mysticism.
