The Seven Mansions of the Interior Castle — Teresa of Avila
Presented by Susan Komis
Virtual Centering Prayer Retreat via Zoom
Co-sponsored by Contemplative Outreach of New Orleans
and the School for Contemplative Living
Join us in exploring the Seven Mansions of Teresa of Avila’s Interior Castle.
Teresa is one of Christianity’s great mystics and teachers. The Seven Mansions of the Interior Castle is her final work
and one of the most profound literary works on contemplation and experiential mysticism. Teresa wrote The Interior
Castle to describe seven mansions of the inner life with God. Prayer stood at the center of Teresa’s teaching. Her fidelity
to prayer was a means of deepening her intimate relationship with God. She considered a life of prayer in terms of love.
Together we will reflect on the light of Teresa’s timeless insights into the human soul, its journey towards intimate
relationship with God, and how Teresa’s teaching is relevant to our personal contemporary spiritual journey today.
There will be Centering Prayer sessions, the presentations, Q & A opportunities, and small group gatherings via
