The celebrated spiritual writer Thomas Merton remains one of the most influential voices of our day. His many books have become modern spiritual classics and he opened up the riches of the monastic tradition for many. Here, Esther de Waal devises a seven day personal or group retreat programme using extracts from Thomas Merton's writings and a selection of the photography for which he was also renowned. She creates a retreat that can be made at home, at a centre or on holiday, over a week or a period of weeks. The focus of each of the seven days is: The Call, Response, The Solitary Within, Encounter With Christ, The Demands of Love, Ordinary Things, and Integration.

Esther De Waal

Esther de Waal enjoys a worldwide reputation as a writer, speaker and retreat leader in the areas of monastic spirituality (especially Benedictine) and Celtic spirituality. Her books have been translated into numerous languages and include the classic Seeking God which has been in print for over 25 years. She lives near Hereford.

'Esther de Waal takes Thomas Merton's spiritual teaching as her main theme and interweaves constant references to Merton and his life with familiar Merton quotations. She also provides her own helpful thoughts and reflections and includes a number of quotations from the Psalms. The end result is a carefully-prepared retreat in the company of Thomas Merton ... This book makes me want once again to follow Merton's guidance and teaching.' -- Sister Avis Mary SLG Fairarces Chronicles 201108
