In this account of the spiritual life as seen through the eyes of Teresa of Avila, Tessa Bielecki describes how St Teresa's vibrant, natural life was the foundation for her mystical life. Showing that St Teresa's life of prayer was above all else an ecstatic and sensual one, the author explores the sensual nature of the spousal prayer (which expresses the intimacy of our relationship with God in terms of God as spouse) and the sensual imagery of the Song of Songs. The book goes on to discuss how the mystical life and our love for God should mature into the ultimate ecstasy: serving God through serving others.
