Is an intimate experience of the Divine meant only for saints and mystics? Tessa Bielecki says that 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, for a loving realization of God that is your divine birthright.

A former Carmelite nun and abbess of a monastic community, Tessa Bielecki guides you through more than six hours of practical, easy-to-follow teachings stemming from her 40 years of communal worship and an 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.

Holy Daring the Way of the Mystic

Have you felt incomplete in your spiritual life? Are you searching for a way to expand your contemplation of the Divine? Wild at Heart offers you the opportunity to embark upon Saint Teresa's holy daring—the complete embrace of everything that arises in your life. This, teaches Tessa Bielecki, is the way of the mystic, an unending celebration of God that continually unfolds the ecstatic experience of all as sacred.

Disciplined Wildness Redefining the Act of Prayer

Wild at Heart, Tessa Bielecki shows you the immersive prayers and meditations of the early Christian fathers and mothers, to instill in you their disciplined wildness. Through many exercises and insights, you will radically change where, when, and how you pray.

Best Sounds True audio I've ever downloaded Review by Sara Sharpe

Tessa Bielecki's devotion to the idea that wildness is in a central component of a contemplative life serves as the through line in this work. She speaks not only of the importance of a "rugged and regular spiritual discipline," but also of the importance of living life to the fullest. One of the most clear-minded and articulate speakers I have ever heard, her work here is infused with the passion with which she approaches her spiritual life and her life in the world. I listen to it not only because I learn a lot (so many glorious references to poems, books, movies, and works of art!), but because I feel I've entered and exulted space every time I listen and long after I've finished. This audio recording has my highest recommendation.

Review for Wild at Heart Review by William R Zimmerman Jr

This program offers an excellent view of the life of the mystic that many people never realize.
The author's explanations and insights are easy to understand provided you closely listen. The author is also very practical as the concepts presented can be applied to today's world. Highly recommended.
