THE Cloister Walk by Kathleen Norris
Part memoir, part meditation, The Cloister Walk is the movingly written and thought-provoking record of a woman's time spent in a community of men in a Benedictine monastery in Minnesota. Any reader seeking a meaningful life - not necessarily a religious one - will be inspired by author experiences among monks who, while so little understood in our society, are admirable bearers of tradition, incorporating in their lives the values of stability, silence, and humility that we so desperately need, yet relentlessly avoid. Gradually she learns much about simplicity, patience, forgiveness, the value of community, and the responsibility of freedom.
