As someone who has been guiding people through the catacombs of their own lives for decades, Francis Dorff, O. Praem. is uniquely qualified to tell stories that evoke personal experiences of the treasures residing within each of us. Readers may recognize their own lives reflected in his description of: being "a stranger in a strange land," wondering where to turn when a door to one's "promised land" closes in one's face, exploring intimations of a Loving Mystery beneath the surface of all of life, embracing parts of our life that we have been neglecting, and creatively getting to know our own deepest self. This book will encourage those of us who are yearning to live more peacefully with others to see how we can "meditatively journey together to the underground place within us that is deeper than all our differences." Those who are feeling stuck may find some help in Fr. Dorff's insight into how "widening the scope of my attentiveness has a lot to do with my being able eventually to take a creative next step." And everyone can be inspired by the author's "experiment with loving" and how many different forms this loving can take over the course of a long, rich life. Here is a personal invitation to learn how to live with the ongoing tensions between solitude and community, meditation and ministry, "getting it all together" and letting it all fall apart-as well as being a misfit and a mystic on a deeply personal pilgrimage. * * * Francis Dorff, O. Praem. is a priest of the Norbertine Community of Santa Maria de la Vid Abbey in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He is a former professor of philosophy and theology living in retirement at the Abbey's Hermitage Retreat. His ministry is currently focused on study, writing and meditatively practicing and sharing a life-integrating approach to personal and spiritual development. He is a specialist in the Holistic Depth Psychology of Ira Progoff, PhD, and the author of several books on living spiritually. Fr. Dorff received his licentiate in theology from the Gregorian University in Rome and his doctorate in philosophical theology from the Institut Catholique in Paris.
