To those without time or inclination for intensive spiritual reading and study, this handbook is a find! The work is firmly grounded in Scripture and Christian teachings on growth through contemplation. Enlightenment, encouragement, and energy are drawn from these pages, and a sense of adventure beckons the reader to new perspectives. For over 40 years, the author, a wife and mother of eight, was nourished by these masters and by the way of life of the Secular Order of Discalced Carmelites. Drawing on her experience in counseling and teaching contemplative meditation, this book meets the need for a practical modern guidebook for the spiritual journey.

"Straight talk, easy reference to Scriptures as well as [Discalced Carmelite] masters, and clear definitions as each chapter addresses high points of the Carmelite way."

—Crux of the News

"A practical primer for everyday mysticism.... Whatever your religious tradition, you're likely to find inspiration in Wilkinson's book to cultivate a life of devotional prayer."
