Publisher's Summary

Is an intimate experience of the Divine meant only for saints and mystics? Ask Tessa Bielecki, a former Carmelite nun and abbess of a monastic community, and the answer is an emphatic no. "Mystical experience is as natural to us as breathing," she explains. "It erupts spontaneously and graciously when we live on the spot and savor the real." Wild at Heart presents her call to you, the ordinary seeker, to have a loving realization of God, which is your divine birthright. Bielecki will guide you through six hours of practical, easy-to-follow teachings, stemming from her 40 years of communal worship and in-depth study of Christian mystics, including Saint Teresa of Avila, Saint John of the Cross, Saint Augustine, and others. Join her to rediscover the radiant heart of Christianity and bring the mystic's depth of passion to your own spiritual practice.

A Perfect Fit

This book fit perfectly in my life at exactly the right time I needed it.
Much of what Tessa wrote here confirms what God has been speaking to me from a variety of sources lately. Many of these things challenge my traditional dogma, yet upon further reflection and deeper understanding, fit beautifully with my faith, rather than conflict.
If you really get the mystical experience with God, you'll not only hear what Tessa is saying, but what is God saying to you as you listen, or through your life experiences.
If you don't get the whole mystical experience yet, and it may sound a little unorthadox or fruity at first, its just a matter of developing an actual relationship with God, opening your spiritual ears to His voice, opening your heart to recieve and express His love, to a deeper and more real level.

This collection of lectures is both very informational and practical. Bielecki gives wonderful descriptions of Christian mysticism, not neglecting the broad range of different mystic views. She includes some memorable anecdotes and examples. There is also some soul-filled poetry.

This is not a book if you are looking for theological points or dogma. In fact, it is the exact opposite. If you are looking to explore the world of Christian mystics, those who seek to experience the eternal God in daily life, this book is for you. Bielecki includes great insights and many practical points to apply to your own life. This audiobook is a delight and a blessing.
