Publisher's Summary

Denial, anger, depression, and anxiety block the path to freedom. Hostile environments at home and work feed our sense of being out of control and under attack. To deal with these realities, Sr. Riley introduces the listener to a series of meditation techniques that address our unhealthy defense mechanisms, face our fears, and begin to understand the peace and strengths that come from utilizing the insights of mystics as well as psychologists. She shows the dynamics that are at work behind procrastinating, diverting, generalizing, being late, losing focus, lying, forgetting, misplacing, etc. She explains that the more we understand our past the easier it is to change our behavior in the present. Using insights from Teresa’s Interior Castle, the Cloud of Unknowing, and De Caussade S.J., she shows how the interior life is steeped in vocal prayer, meditation, acquired recollection, the prayer of quiet, simple union, and finally the transformed Union. She offers a way of being honest with our own emotions and then being able to calmly face the intense feelings of others without running away or striking back.
