Join world-renowned Carmelite scholar Professor Keith Egan as he guides you through the powerful teachings of the wise mystic Teresa of Avila.

Great Saint Teresa, the Spanish Carmelite of the 16th century, captured the imagination of those seeking God in her own time and beyond. It’s no surprise that she was quickly canonized and, in 1970, became the first woman Doctor of the Church.

Through these 12 edifying audio lectures, you’ll understand why her teachings remain transformational today.

Prof. Egan will carefully guide you through Teresa’s teaching about prayer—ordinary and mystical—meditation, and contemplation. Through these 12 graceful talks, you will come to more fully understand prayer as Teresa did, as an “exercise in love.”

Teresa of Jesus, as she was known, was a stunning storyteller whose profound books share her innermost struggles to grow in prayer and contemplation. Now you can encounter Teresa and her moving words with grace and understanding.

From this unique series, you’ll come to know the life, ideas, and mysticism of this extraordinary saint and great teacher of prayer. Teresa’s wisdom will stir your heart and intensify your desi

 Praise for Professor Keith J. Egan
“I found Keith Egan’s tapes on Teresa easy to grasp, a summons to further study, and most of all a firm but gentle invitation to deeper prayer. Particularly, I loved his concise yet profound explanation of Teresa’s Prayer of Recollection.”– Fr. Tracy O’Sullivan, O. Carm., Pastor Emeritus, St. Raphael Parish, Los Angeles“In our formation classes for new members, we have used Prof. Keith Egan’s DVDs of Come, Pray with Carmel. We have found his lectures perfect for an overview of Carmel’s tradition of prayer. It made us want to look further into the history of Carmel and all of the traditions that have led us to where we are today. His personal comments were insightful as our new member loved what he said about prayer being leisure for God. The study guide also helped her to ask questions after we watched the DVD.”– Sister Carol Sachse, O.C.D.

    Great introduction

    Summer Survey: July 2017

    The courses given by Keith Egan were so informative and spiritually invigorating. I keep listening to them over and over again. Keith’s knowledge and personal experience of Carmelite spirituality bring to life the spirit and works of Teresa of Avila and John of the Cross.
