Over the last few decades, within the Christian Church and in broader society, there has been an explosion of interest in the benefits and fruits of monastic spirituality and culture, both in its historical and contemporary contexts. Even where people have given up on the institutional churches, monasticism retains an integrity and magnetic appeal.

This book explores what it is that makes monastic spirituality so attractive to so many people and how it can be incorporated into an individual's everyday life in practical ways.

Chapters include: The appeal of monasticism, Different varieties of monastic experience, Monastic spirituality and personal development, Monastic spirituality and relationships, Monastic spirituality and work, Monastic spirituality and community living, Achieving balance, and Working out a rule of life.

Review:

'This is a book which will be of immense help, whether or not you choose this particular way ... It is brilliant and non-judgemental and ranges widely, covering aspects of life and our place in this world and helping us discover a way of spirituality which has for a long time been hidden to many. It leads us to a much wider, fuller and adaptable view of the practice of Monasticism.' (Alan McCabe)

'This is a wise book about how the monastic experience can shape personal development, relationships, the approach to work or communal living.' (Bernard Green 2011-04-23)

"The themes explored here are not only fascinating, but also timely." (Jennie Hogan Church Times 2011-02-04)
