Holy Daring: Conversations with St. Teresa, the Wild Woman of Avila, by Tessa Bielecki, has just been published by Albion-Andalus Books. This fresh, upbeat, and deftly profound book joyfully reconnects the fullness of our lives and the depth of our prayer.
Much more than yet another book about a great saint who once was, it actually rekindles something of St. Teresa’s outrageous spiritual impulse for contemporary readers, particularly those who describe themselves as “spiritual, not religious.”
“Tessa’s deep intimacy with Teresa of Avila permeates this beautiful book,” writes Mirabai Starr, “and creates an invitational space for readers of any tradition (or none) to enter into their own transformational relationship with the ‘wild woman of Avila.’”
This new edition of Holy Daring is revised and updated for a new generation of readers in honor of the 500th anniversary of St. Teresa’s birth. It includes a Foreword by Adam Bucko and outlines ten concrete and earthy spiritual practices.
