Product Description

This eloquent guide to spiritual self-awareness examines the problems faced by all who deny themselves loving relationships with others and with God by the compulsive drive for efficiency, recognition and success. For addiction, May explains, is how we avoid our deep desire for love, the emptiness that only God can fill. The Awakened Heart draws on the wisdom of biblical prophets as well as philosophers and figures such as Francis de Sales, Teresa of Avila, William Blake, Martin Buber and Thomas Kelly. May gives considerable attention to the techniques, disciplines and pit-falls inherent in developing a faithful prayer life, and highlights the human ability to choose - with God's help - to love well. For counselors and lay people.
