Reviews - What do customers think about A Listening Heart: The Spirituality of Sacred Senuousness?
Sacred Sensuouness Nov 15, 2005
A Listening Heart is subtitled The Spirituality of Sacred Sensuousness. This subtitle really gives the meat of the book. Brother David helps us to understand the sacredness of sensual experienes - taste, sight, hearing, touch and smell. He carefully makes his case that we can come in touch with the the divine by becoming more fully aware of our reaction to sensual stimuli. The book is very well and clearly written.
I gave it four stars because of the chapter entitled Mirror of the Heart. I found this chapter rather obtuse - maybe because I am not a great fan of poetry. However, the book would have been better without this chapter. That's my two cents worth.
