Ordained as a Catholic priest and trained as a psychologist, Nouwen famously struggled with loneliness and finally found refuge ministering to the intellectually disabled at L’Arche Daybreak community. His deep humanity and compassion for the least among us is evident in the stories, readings, and questions collected in these sessions.

Each session was carefully prepared by an award-winning professor of Christian ministry and a student of Nouwen’s at Yale Divinity School. Drawing from research and personal recollection, they structured these sessions to let you take Nouwen as your personal spiritual guide anytime and anywhere. In the spirit of community, you are encouraged to listen to these sessions in group settings.
