Every age has answered the questions and challenges of spiritual living in its own particular ways through its languages, arts, and lifestyles, giving seekers various concepts for guidance. In this original manifesto, bestselling author Joan Chittister delivers a roadmap based on the ancient Rule of Benedict that stands as a practical model upon which to build a satisfying life, despite the seemingly limitless (and at times meaningless) supply of options in the modern world. By giving spiritual seekers - individuals, couples, families, and small groups - a new opportunity to live a better life from the very centre of their world without ever having to withdraw from it, Chittister's new approach redefines Benedictine living for modern day seekers while remaining firmly rooted in its monastic values.

She also met another singer, Lucilla Udovick with whom she shared an apartment in Milano and who became a life long friend. Lucilla introduced her to the anthologies of Louis Untermeyer. This in turn inspired the author to begin writing poetry. On her return to America, while living in New York she met Louis Untermeyer who became her mentor. After studying with him for almost two years she returned to Los Angeles, California. Her literary and friendly relationship with her mentor continued through their correspondence for twenty-four years until his death. She has been so preoccupied with her writing and family activities, she has neglected until now getting her work into publication. To date her only previously published work is a book of poetry, "A Tale of Leaves." She has written over 100 yet to be published books of poetry and prose.
