"A creative and exquisite anthology of Merton's writings, letters and poems arranged in a 1-week prayer pattern immitating the Divine Hours. This truly represents the creme de la creme of Merton - chef extraordinaire of food for the soul."
"If you long for a Mother in the Divine, you will quickly fall in love with this CD. Bring Kleenex. If the idea of the feminine aspect of God freaks you out, you probably need this even more than the rest of us. Bring an open heart. And headphones."
"This is a wonderful collection of the thoughts and hearts of women throughout Church history. Yes, they were there, despite their historical lack of representation. Some voices have survived and they have much to tell us about God and ourselves."
"A modern appreciation of classical sacred chant. It floats out of your player to soothe the soul. If you love Hildegard of Bingen, you'll find her spiritual sisters on this CD. I have also heard them in concert. If you ever get the chance, run, do not walk, to purchase tickets."
"This is a read & reflect a chapter at a time book. Palmer delves deep into one parable at a time (from various traditions, including the Bible) and challenges us to interact with these stories as if they were of us...because they are."
"Both are a wonderful collection of parabolic, personal stories about seeking life lived at a deeper level. Especially great for anyone in the medical (or any healing) field, as she often references her experiences as a physician."
"I usually prefer to read an entire book of a single poet, however, this volume is so well edited that I have come to lean upon it a lot. If seeking a solid anthology of mindful poetry of the soul, I offer this one as the best I have found so far."
"To begin to explore the on-going, always present conversation between body and soul, this book offers excellent reflection and suggested exercises of engagement. Not just for people who own their "body issues" (we all have one, so we all have them), this is a great read for anyone who wants to make a deeper connection."
