Spiritual formation : following the movements of the spirit by Henri J. M Nouwen( Book )

7 editions published between 2010 and 2015 in English and held by 399 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Henri Nouwen, the world-renowned spiritual guide and counselor, understood the spiritual life as a journey of faith and transformation that is deepened by accountability, community, and relationships. Though he counseled many people during his lifetime, his principles of spiritual direction and formation were never written down. Two of Nouwen's longtime students, Michael Christensen and Rebecca Laird, have taken his famous course in spiritual direction and supplemented it with his unpublished writings to create the definitive series on Nouwen's thoughts on the Christian life. The first book in the series, Spiritual Direction, introduced readers to the core concepts of Nouwen's approach to the spiritual life. Book two, Spiritual Formation, showcases Nouwen's life-long effort to re-construct the five classical stages of spiritual development as movements in the journey of faith. The five classical stages are these: 1. Awakening (our desire) 2. Purgation (purifying our passions) 3. Illumination (of God) 4. Dark Night (of the Soul) 5. Unification (with God) Readings, stories, questions for personal reflection, and guided journal inquiry as articulated by Nouwen will provide readers with an experience in spiritual formation with the well-known author, priest, and guide. The third and final book in the series, Spiritual Discernment, is planned to release in 2012"--

El discernimiento : cómo leer los signos de la vida diaria by Henri J. M Nouwen( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in Spanish and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La premisa de este libros es que Dios nos habla constantemente -como individuos y como pueblo de Dios- en momentos distintos y de formas diversas: a través de sueños y visiones, de porfetas y mensajeros, de las Escrituras y la tradición, de la experiencia y la razón, de la naturaleza y los acontecimientos. Y ese discernimiento es la práctica espiritual que busca entender qué es lo que Dios trata de decirnos. Después de sus dos anteriores obras, "Dirección espiritual y Formación espiritual", Nouwen nos enseña en este tercer volumen de su trilogía a leer los "signos de los tiempos" en la vida diaria para que tomemos decisiones orientadas en último término por Dios. Nouwen pone el énfasis en la escucha de la Palabra de Dios -en nuestros corazones, en la Biblia, en la comunidad de fe y en la voz de los desfavorecidos- y trata de ayudarnos a responder a una de las grandes cuestiones a las que cad uno de nosotros se enfrenta: ¿Qué debería hacer con mi vida?
