A daily devotional-style look at the 6th century monastic Rules of Benedict and how we can find a rule of life that includes balance and compassion. Includes the text of the rules and commentary written by a Benedictine sister that draws from the wisdom literature of other cultures such as Zen, Jewish, Tao, Sufi and Hindi. It's amazing yet not how 6th century monastic rules apply so well in family, work and other group settings in the 21st century
