Notes: Books recommended by my spiritual director

I need to keep track of things in a form not requiring little bits of paper, which inevitably end up stashed around the apartment and forgotten.

So, books recommended by my spiritual director at our first meeting:

The Study of Anglicanism
The Study of Liturgy
The Spiritual Life by Evelyn Underhill
The Practice of Prayer by Margaret Guenther
Rumi
The New Church Teaching Series

Wow! A lot to get from your spiritual director at your first meeting!

I saw the first two titles, and thought, "What heavy reading!" I have both, sitting on my shelves pretty much unread.

But then you get Evelyn Underhill, great stuff for anyone interested in spiritual development.

As for Margaret Guenther, I greatly admire her, and "The Practice of Prayer" is a book I love.

Rumi will take you to marvelous places.

And anything in the New Church Teaching Series is well worth reading.

If the choice of books is any indication, you have found yourself a very good spiritual director.

and your deadline?

Hope he/she gives you healthy workpractices too.

But the list is interesting :) as mike said a bit heavy at first, so start from the bottom - or piggy back them :)
