About the Author

Ruth Burrows is a Carmelite Nun from Quiddenham in Norfolk. She is the author of a number of bestselling books including Guidelines for Mystical Prayer


"The book has been written by one who clearly lives every word she writes. As Wendy Beckett says in her Foreword: 'to read Ruth Burrows...is to take into your mind and heart the insight of somebody who is close to God, and has the rare ability to share that closeness with others. God has given her great gifts, and she has opened herself to receive them' (p. vii). In this lies her appeal. Teresa of Avila wrote from her own experience. Ruth Burrows, too, writes from her own experience, albeit different from Teresa's. So she too writes with authority and it shows! I especially appreciate how in this volume great care has been taken with the use of language, which is inclusive both as regards God and ourselves."
-Elizabeth Ruth Obbard, Mount Carmel, July-Sept. 2010
