A Monk in the World

Cultivating a Spiritual Life

Wayne Teasdale

In 1986, Brother Wayne Teasdale accepted an invitation to visit Shantivanam, the ashram of Father Bed Griffiths, an English Benedictine monk living in India. On this visit, Teasdales’s third, Father Bede asked if Teasdale would consider taking sannyasa, or Indian monkhood, from him, as a Christian.

Thus began Teasdale’s life as an inter religious monk and mystic. In A Monk in the World, he explores what Griffith’s charge has meant for him – to live as a monk outside the monastery, to integrate teachings from the world’s religions with his own Catholic training, to combine his vigorous spiritual practice the necessities of making a living, to pursue a course of social justice. He also shows us how we can find our own spiritual path amid the rigors of everyday life. Teasdale explores a range of real-world topics; the problem and opportunity of the homeless: a comtemplative understanding of suffering; the stuggle to promote personal and social change; the role of the church in building spiritual understanding; as well as friendship, time, work, and money.
