With Saint John of the Cross, Teresa became an influential spiritual director and left for posterity a series of classic writings, including The Way of Perfection and The Interior Castle, her fullest statement on prayer and contemplation.

She recognizes the different kinds of prayer that may sustain us over the course of our lives, not only the mystical prayer for which she is best known. In addition to steadfast trust in God, Teresa insists upon intellectual engagement and good judgment as cornerstones of the holy life, objectives this 15-day journey will help you achieve. Saint Teresa of Avila will be a faithful mentor in your spiritual education.
