“Spiritual formation is not about steps or stages on the way to perfection. It’s about the movements from the mind to the heart through prayer in its many forms that reunite us with God, each other, and our true selves.”
— Henri Nouwen , from the Introduction
Spiritual Formation reveals Nouwen’s sage advice on how to live out the five classical stages of spiritual development. Featuring a unique visio divina, a visual meditation to help guide and focus prayer, this volume reveals Nouwen’s profound wisdom on how to move from sorrow to joy, resentment to gratitude, fear to love, and how to live there in the centre — the place where God dwells.
