So when we talk about your call–your destiny, encoded deep in the hidden recesses of your soul–the first step to finding it is waking up.
~ Carl McColman, from Answering the Contemplative Call: Five Steps on the Mystical Path
Carl is an author, speaker, blogger, retreat leader, and spiritual director. He writes about the mystical and contemplative dimensions of both Christian and world spirituality (taken from the inset).
I have had the joy of attending a writing retreat with Carl this summer at the Monastery of the Holy Spirit, in Conyers, Georgia. I have great respect for his love of interfaith discussion, his love of God, and his desire to make the world a better place one contemplative moment at a time.
