Publisher's Summary

The Mystic Heart chronicled Brother Wayne Teasdale's journey into a multifaceted spirituality blending his traditional Catholic training and the Eastern way of sannyasa (Indian monkhood). A Monk in the World tells what the journey has meant for him - living as a monk outside the monastery, integrating teachings from the world's religions with his own Catholic training, combining his vigorous spiritual practice with the necessities of making a living, and pursuing a course of social justice in a major American city. In telling his story, Teasdale reveals how others can find their own internal monastery and bring spiritual practice into their busy lives.

Bourgeois Nonsense

Not every so-called spiritual being has a good character, or pursues a civilised political path. Not every spiritual bring is a role model and neither should they be presented as such. Supporting the greed of capitalism is not a worthy, spiritual attribute, particularly as every legitimate monastic path involves a vow of poverty and a simplicity of life. A privileged upbringing does not replace the need to cultivate humility or genuine spiritual insight
