Daily Lectio Divina: Nouwen on Solitude and the False Self

Episode 131

In this episode of the guided lectio divina podcast, we’re starting a new series on selected readings from Henri Nouwen‘s book The Way of the Heart: Connecting with God through Prayer, Wisdom, and Silence. This week we’re reading from the chapter on Solitude.

Solitude is the furnace of transformation. Without solitude we remain victims of our society and continue to be entangled in the illusions of the false self….Solitude is the place of the great struggle and the great encounter–the struggle against the compulsions of the false self, and the encounter with the loving God who offers himself as the substance of the new self.
