In the 16th century, St. Teresa of Avila used a castle with seven chambers as a metaphor for a person's spiritual development. Free of religious dogma, this modern translation by Mirabai Starr renders St. Teresa's work a beautiful and practical set of teachings for seekers of all faiths in need of spiritual guidance. It also places this classic in a contemporary context, reasserting its importance even after more than 400 years.Penguin Group
