Why would a married woman with a thoroughly Protestant background and often more doubt than faith be drawn to the ancient practice of monasticism, to a community of celibate men whose days are centered around a rigid schedule of prayer, work, and scripture? This is the question that Kathleen Norris herself asks as, somewhat to her own surprise, she found herself on two extended residencies at a Benedictine monastery. Yet upon leaving the monastery, she began to feel herself transformed, and the daily events of her life on the Great Plains - from her morning walk to her going to sleep at night - gradually took on new meaning. She found that in the monastery, time slowed down, offering a new perspective on community, family, and even small-town life. By coming to understand the Benedictine practice of celibacy, she felt her own marriage enriched; through the communal reading aloud of the psalms every day, her notion of the ancient oral tradition of poetry came to life; and even the mundane task of laundry took on new meaning through the lens of Benedictine ritual. Kathleen Norris here takes us through a liturgical year, as she experienced it both within the monastery and outside it. She shows us, from the rare perspective of someone who is both insider and outsider, how immersion in the cloistered world -- its liturgy, its rituals, its sense of community -- can impart meaning to everyday events and deepen our secular lives, no matter what our faith may be.… (lisätietoja)

Why would a married woman with a thoroughly Protestant background and often more doubt than faith be drawn to the ancient practice of monasticism, to a community of celibate men whose days are centered around a rigid schedule of prayer, work, and scripture? This is the question poet Kathleen Norris asks us, somewhat to her own surprise, she found herself on two extended residencies at St John's Abbey in Minnesota. Part record of her time among the Benedictines, part meditation on various aspects of monastic life, The Cloister Walk demonstrates, from the rare perspective of someone who is both an insider and outsider, how immersion in the cloister world, its liturgy, its ritual, its sense of community, can impart meaning to everyday events and deepen our secular lives.

I’ve always been drawn to the monastic way of life, if I’m honest, so I was likewise drawn to this book. I appreciated being able to look into the life of the Benedictines that Kathleen Norris spent much time with, their way of life which is something I myself aspire to in their focus on prayer, simplicity, the reading of the Scriptures and such.

Although a small handful of chapters were of less interest to me, for the rest of this book I would rate it four stars.

Furthermore, the author has such a profound way of “noticing” in the many details of every day life, a noticing that led her to see God at work and receive wisdom from life’s happening and those around her that is greatly refreshing.

I finished this book praying that I too may learn to “notice” in this way, that God may use it for my good and the good of others to His glory. ( )

This is another book I read years ago, and now cannot recall what it was like. ( )

Based around the author's time spent as an oblate at a Benedictine monastery, this book took me a while to finish. Its (mostly) short chapters each explore different ideas and how monastic life might give people a different view of them than non-monastics. I found myself underlining something on almost every page. Not a book you're going to tear through in one sitting, but more like something you need to sit with. ( )

A reverent study of the monastic world assesses the meaning of the cloistered life in modern times, journeying through a liturgical year to capture the relevance and spiritual significance of the religious life.
