Dr. Lanzetta will speak about her latest book, The Monk Within, written for the person seeking a deeper, contemplative orientation to daily life. She views "the monk" as an original essence within each person. Each of us retains a core of silence and solitude that belongs to Mystery alone. This contemporary quest is being shaped by a dynamic, fast-paced global society; by openness to multifaith and interspiritual conversations; by concern for suffering and the ravages of violence; by a desire to prevent further destruction to Earth and its ecosystems. It is fueled by a need for meaning, perhaps nowhere more apparent than in the day-to-day difficulties that beset people today. It is a return to our source, to the visionary, ethereal, awe-inspiring knowledge of those who ventured into the dark regions and came away illumined, transformed.
Dr. Beverly Lanzetta is a theologian, spiritual teacher, and the author of many groundbreaking books on emerging global spirituality and new monasticism, including Radical Wisdom: A Feminist Mystical Theology;Emerging Heart: Global Spirituality and the Sacred; and Nine Jewels of Night: One Soul's Journey into God.
