About the Author
Tessa Bielecki and Fr. David Denny have worked together for over forty years. They began as Carmelite monks in the Spiritual Life Institute where they co-edited Desert Call and gave retreats and workshops. At Colorado College they taught a history of Christian Mysticism and Desert Spirituality: from the Middle East to the American Southwest. They left monastic life in 2005 and created the Desert Foundation (see www.desertfound.org) and now live in neighboring hermitages near Crestone, Colorado. Tessa is the author of three books on St. Teresa of Avila and recorded Wild at Heart: Radical Teachings of the Christian Mystics for Sounds True. Fr. Dave has served as chaplain for Image Journal’s Glen Workshops and Seattle Pacific University’s writing residencies. He raises funds for Cross Catholic Outreach, a relief ministry for the poorest of the poor. Both authors are currently working on their memoirs and collaborating again on Fire and Light: the Passion of the Christian Mystics.

into a deeper level of meaning about the seasonal celebrations of Winter. Opening up a spaciousness at the heart of humanity, far from the cultural trappings of consumerism, Tessa Bielecki and Dave Denny communicate the primordial sense of wonder that stares at us every day from the human experience. From Advent to Candelmas. the authors weave their unique "earthy mystical" perspective into each chapter, inviting the reader to see the ordinary and familiar with new eyes. A collection full of wisdom, unusual poems, hymns, rituals, and just plain beautiful prose,Season of Glad Tidings floods the soul with illumination. This book is essentially a gift, to give and to savor, for many years to come.
