Each of us walks an individual spiritual path, nevertheless, certain steps and milestones are common to us all. The Spiritual Novice describes what you are likely to encounter along the way and: Clarifies how fear complicates and blocks unconditional love Provides practical ways to identify and release your fears Offers visual, sound, and body-based meditation techniques to fit your personal style Shows how to align with your true purpose and create the life you want As you begin the journey to find your true spiritual self, Madea's words and wisdom will touch your heart and give you the courage and knowledge to walk your spiritual path with awareness.

Dr. Paul Dunion suggests that peace comes when we accept the world’s inherent uncertainties and begin to approach life with elevated curiosity and enthusiasm. Dunion guides you toward maintaining a heightened level of mindfulness in everyday life. He shows how the simple act of being fully present and cultivating a soul practice opens the gates to unity—the essence of the novice secular mystic and the key to finding depth and meaning in life. While his instruction is clear, Dunion does not suggest a cure-all formula. Rather, he encourages honest self-examination and arms you with thoughtful questions that will incite true personal reflection, thereby allowing you to develop a personal philosophy. With this unique blend of psychology, philosophy, and spirituality, Path of the Novice Mystic is sure to open the heart and mind to a more enriching way of life.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Adventures of Novice Number Nine begins with a nighttime ride into the desert wilderness with 23 year old Anne joining a small order of strict Trappistine nuns. Leaving the laid-back lifestyle of Southern California, Anne rises at 3:15 at the sound of a hand bell and learns to chant, meditate, grow vegetables, can food, bake bread and fashion handcrafts, learning firsthand the meaning of ora et labora. Anne’s upbringing follows her into the cloister where piecing together a mosaic of the Lady of Guadalupe, competitive matches of ping-pong with a visiting abbot and a wayward hot-air balloon unintentionally help her. Yet Anne struggles with the chaos of growing up with a father who found his spirits in a bottle instead of a church. The dangerous elements in the desert: severe heat, wild boars, rattlesnakes and lightning strikes she sees as God-given lessons that help her come to terms with her past.

This book was released on 2007-11-15 with total page 288 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In late antiquity the rising number of ascetics who joined the priesthood faced a pastoral dilemma. Should they follow a traditional, demonstrably administrative, approach to pastoral care, emphasizing doctrinal instruction, the care of the poor, and the celebration of the sacraments? Or should they bring to the parish the ascetic models of spiritual direction, characterized by a more personal spiritual father/spiritual disciple relationship? Five Models of Spiritual Direction in the Early Church explores the struggles of five clerics (Athanasius, Gregory Nazianzen, Augustine of Hippo, John Cassian, and Pope Gregory I) to reconcile their ascetic idealism with the reality of pastoral responsibility. Through a close reading of Greek and Latin texts, George E. Demacopoulos explores each pastor's criteria for ordination, his supervision of subordinate clergy, and his methods of spiritual direction. He argues that the evolution in spiritual direction that occurred during this period reflected and informed broader developments in religious practices. Demacopoulos describes the way in which these authors shaped the medieval pastoral traditions of the East and the West. Each of the five struggled to balance the tension between his ascetic idealism and the realities of the lay church. Each offered distinct (and at times very different) solutions to that tension. The diversity among their models of spiritual direction demonstrates both the complexity of the problem and the variable nature of early Christianity. Scholars and students of late antiquity, the history of Christianity, and historical theology will find a great deal of interest in Five Models of Spiritual Direction in the Early Church. The book will also appeal to those who are actively engaged in Christian ministry.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "Mary Shideler's call to see ourselves as living under the aspect of the eternal, to awaken that Spirit within, is itself sounded from a deep commitment and practice. Applicable to beginners of many different traditions and backgrounds, she is also clear that at some time the novitiate must end and that a deeper commitment will be necessary. Perhaps her observation, "Thou shalt not be overcome," will be one that will prompt many to begin their own spiritual journey." --Henri Nouwen In this classical primer on the spiritual life, Mary McDermott Shideler writes for those just beginning to experience the stirrings of the spirit and to ask the most elementary questions, "How should I pray? What should I pray? What is prayer?" In her guide to the basics of spiritual development, Shideler leads us with shrewd psychological insight from the early steps of spiritual awakening to mature understanding and commitment to whatever tradition in which we find ourselves. Drawing on the insights of writers like CS Lewis, Kierkegaard, Charles Williams, and GK Chesterton, this eloquent work describes life in the spirit with vivid stories and examples and without formal terminology.

Book excerpt: "In this study, Aaron Milavec comprehensively examines how the first-century pastoral manual known as the Didache enumerated the step-by-step training of converts for the full, active participation in the earliest Jewish-Christian communities. Milavec shows how the Didache can, in turn, illuminate our understanding of how these first Christian men and women organized their community life socially, religiously, and politically in order to safeguard its members from the challenges of the surrounding Roman, pagan society of the first-century Mediterranean basin. He argues not only that the Didache's textual and contextual clues demonstrate the document's organic unity from beginning to end, but also that it dates from a period before the gospels were written and had gained acceptance."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: For many years the Venerable Thomas à Kempis had charge of the young Religious at Mount St. Agnes. The office of training the Novices was with the Windesheimers usually attached to the sub-priorship, at least in the early days of the Congregation, and a Novice-Master, as such, was not appointed. Twice Thomas was elected Sub-Prior of the Monastery on the Mount. We find him named as holding that post in 1429, in a list of the Brethren who went into exile rather than disobey a papal interdict laid upon the land. As a vacancy had occurred by the promotion of Brother Theodoric from Sub-Prior to Prior in 1425, it is reasonable to presume that our author was appointed at that date. Aeterna Press

This book was released on 2020-03-23 with total page 190 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Convents and Novices in Early Modern English Dramatic Works attends to the religious, social, and material changes in England during the century following the Reformation, specifically examining how the English came to terms with the meanings of convents and novices even after they disappeared from the physical and social landscape. In five chapters, it traces convents and novices across a range of dramatic texts that refuse easy generic classification: problem plays such as Shakespeare's Measure for Measure; Marlowe's comic tragedy The Jew of Malta; Margaret Cavendish's closet dramas The Convent of Pleasure and The Religious; Aphra Behn's Restoration comedy The Rover; and seventeenth-century dialogues that include both a Catholic treatise promoting women's entrance into European convents and a proto-pornographic exposé of such convents. Convents, novices, and problem plays emerge as parallel sites of ambiguity that reflect the social, political, and religious uncertainties England faced after the Reformation.

Download or read book Schools as Dangerous Places written by Anthony Potts and published by Cambria Press. This book was released on 2007 with total page 413 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The lack of serious study on how dangerous schools as institutions can be is a little surprising given that the matter was put squarely on the research agenda in persuasive fashion by Waller back in 1932. The lack of response to the possibilities opened up means that a vibrant research agenda still awaits construction. This book will stimulate debate on the matter from the historical perspective. It consists of fifteen chapters drawing on historical case studies from the United States, Canada, England, Ireland, Scotland, and Australia written by international scholars in the field. These chapters are helpfully grouped into three sections. The first section focuses on certain dangers to which pupils were exposed in the past and on certain dangerous practices which they promoted. The second section examines dangers to which teachers were exposed in the past along with dangerous practices which they themselves promoted. In the final and third section, the chapters explore the dangers to which teachers and students were exposed in the past at the university level. Throughout the book, the emphases range from dangers emanating from the institutions themselves and the patterns of relationships that developed in them, to what occurred due to particular ideologies and practices connected with sport, sex, religion, and science. Schools as Dangerous Places delivers a historical perspective of schools in a manner that is most unusual. This unique study helps us examine education through a very different lens.
