Publisher's Summary

In our culture, the “good life” means getting more. This series of retreat talks challenges listeners to subtract--to release whatever hinders us from siding with the cosmic Christ, whether that be in our inner world or our outer world. Father Rohr offers a daring vision which calls us to surrender, to liberation, to making room for real freedom.

Letting Go: A Spirituality of Subtraction

Very good recording.
The talk captivated me during the first session, and continued to hold my attention.
Richard has way helping you understand our mission and how to get there.

series of talks

What made the experience of listening to Letting Go the most enjoyable?

I enjoyed hearing the author's voice

What was one of the most memorable moments of Letting Go?

nothing stands out as particularly memorable- all was pretty deep thinking for me

Have you listened to any of Richard Rohr’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

no - this is my first but I bought most of his. I did start a 2nd one of his that he narrates but reads instead of being a speech like this one- in this one he ends sentences with 'huh' or a sound like that quite a bit. when reading an actual book he doesn't seem to do this.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

deep thinking

Any additional comments?

my main aggravation with this was the chaptering- there were about 9 'talk's but the chaptering didn't reflect the beginning/end of each - chapter 1 might have 5 min of the 2nd talk and the the 2nd talk would end and the 3rd talk start with 10 min- seems they could have divided it one chapter per topic.

This may well have changed my outlook on life.<br />

Richard Rohr certainly gets to the core of what following Jesus is all about. He challenges the whole concept of rampant individualism & consumerism. I'm not following Jesus to get something out of it for me but how others may benefit; it's never for what I can get of it. Take the 'I' out of life & replace it with 'others'.
