"There is enough guidance, connection, and wisdom in this book to keep you acting, thinking and praying for a lifetime! You would be foolish not to take advantage of it. Rory and Adam are trying to do what St. Francis wanted to do 800 years ago. Maybe now we are more prepared and even ready!" --Richard Rohr, O.F.M., Center for Action and Contemplation Albuquerque, New Mexico
"Rory McEntee and Adam Bucko, pilgrims of a new monasticism, write with reverence about our collective spiritual inheritance, and in remembrance of the singular Presence that alone fills the soul s longing. Offering a comprehensive introduction to a new monastic movement, including its pathways and transformations, Bucko and McEntee share their map of the journey to Divine awakening, honoring the monk within. This is a book for anyone who seeks the mystical cloister beyond any one form, with a monastic heart open to all creation." --Beverly Lanzetta, PhD, author, Radical Wisdom: A Feminist Mystical Theology
This book is a divining rod for the crossroads where we find ourselves. For monastic legacies in danger of extinction, for a world that has never needed them more desperately, Bucko and McEntee offer a vision that is old as well as new, rooted as well as cosmopolitan." --Nathan Schneider, author, Thank You, Anarchy: Notes from the Occupy Apocalypse.

"The journey of new monasticism requires deep quiet, deep listening, deep dialogue."
Some of the key points discussed in this book included: the necessity of deep retreats, dialogue with others that involves listening and integrating, communities that allow people to become who they were born to be, sharing your journey with other spiritually mature friends, and contemplative prayer and action balance each other.
I will re read. This is a Powerful book! You must read it too.
