About meI am beginning a vocation to a life of solitude and silence as a religious hermit; more accurately, an Anglican solitary. Episcopalian lay woman, in my mid-fifties, from the New York City area.

About my libraryRight now my reading is entirely geared toward my spiritual life. These books constitute a reading list about contemplative spirituality and eremitic life.


Favorite authorsSt. Teresa of Ávila, Marcus J. Borg, St. John of the Cross, Philip Gulley, John J. Kirvan, Brother Lawrence of the Resurrection, Gerald G. May, Anthony de Mello, Thomas Merton, Julian of Norwich, Desmond Tutu (Shared favorites)
