Description 

Author: Julienne McLean
Copyright: 2003

This book is a modern commentary on the great Christian mystical text The Interior Castle written by St. Teresa of Avila in sixteenth century Spain. It seeks to encourage and assist modern pilgrims towards a more heart-centred, contemplative and intimate relationship with God through presenting and exploring the saint’s own spiritual writings and guidance.

As well as being a manual for spiritual direction, Towards Mystical Union is also intended to be a contribution to the interface between modern depth psychology, contemplative prayer and the Christian mystical tradition. Through inspiration and experience, the author had found St. Teresa to be a vitally important teacher and spiritual guide. The book had been written in response to an increasing hunger for the spiritual direction and discernment from a holy Mother, which St. Teresa can provide.

About the Author: Julienne McLean practices as a psychologist and Jungian analyst in North London, having studied in Australia, the United States and England. She is also a spiritual director who has had a lifelong involvement in the Christian contemplative tradition, with a particular interest in the relationship between depth psychology and Christian mysticism. She teaches at Sarum College, Salisbury and co-leads retreats in Spain.
