I have listened to Entering the Castle twice so far. The first time was to see what it was about. That's when I encountered my greatest resistance to the challenge of listening to the critical voice of Caroline Myss between mansions. I sought out other voices on Teresa of Avila, but returned to listening again to Ms. Myss and realized that she was exactly the voice I needed to hear at this point in my life. I would describe my experience of listening to the audio the second time like surrendering to being in spiritual boot camp for mystic wanna-be's in the world. The second reading led me to listening to St. Teresa's voice in her work of the Interior Castle. I have found my self surprised by a sense of falling in love with the Saint, with Caroline's guidance, and with the experience of encountering the Divine in my daily discipline of meager but meaningful moments for quiet meditation. Thank you Caroline for interpreting St. Teresa's work to give it voice and connection to Divine Purpose for the soul towards all of creation in the 21st century.
I want all my friends to read this bookQ
A captivating story from the start!
All the characters were memorable. My favorite was the boy who sought his dream.
I would like to take the Alchemist out to dinner because I have a few questions for him about lead.
This was a wonderfully told story with many wise, mystical insights.
The Interior Castle offers a brilliant framework for self reflection, spiritual maturity, and transformation.
This book is a good companion to works written by St. John of the Cross as both he and St. Teresa of Avila share similar interior insights and perspectives on mystical experience with the Divine.
Ms. Denaker has a good nun voice :) She speaks with clarity and excellent diction. Listening to her is like sitting at the feet of St. Teresa of Avila and listening to her spiritual experience as it was shaped in her particular world view of Catholicism in the 1500's. Yet, what Teresa shares about the mystical experience is timeless! Susan Denaker gets better and better at capturing the nuances of St. Teresa's writing voice as the Castle progresses.
