In this book, Brother David Steindl-Rast, who has been a monk for more than 50 years, argues that every sensual experience—whether the joy of walking barefoot or the fragrance of the season—should be recognized as a spiritual one.
“Ever since I added the two new chapters, ‘Sensuous Asceticism’ and ‘Sacred Sensuousness,’ to A Listening Heart, this has become for me a favorite among my own books.”
— Br. David
With foreword by Matthew Fox.
