The Interior Castle, or The Mansions, is a guide for spiritual development through service and prayer. Saint Teresa of Ávila, also called Saint Teresa of Jesus, baptized as Teresa Sánchez de Cepeda y Ahumada, was a prominent Spanish mystic, Roman Catholic saint, Carmelite nun, and writer of the Counter Reformation, and theologian of contemplative life through mental prayer. She was a reformer of the Carmelite Order and is considered to be, along with John of the Cross, a founder of the Discalced Carmelites. In 1622, forty years after her death, she was canonized by Pope Gregory XV, and in 1970 named a Doctor of the Church by Pope Paul VI. Her books, which include her autobiography, The Life of Teresa of Jesus, and her seminal work, El Castillo Interior (The Interior Castle), are an integral part of the Spanish Renaissance literature as well as Christian mysticism and Christian meditation practices as she entails in her other important work Camino de Perfección (The Way of Perfection).

This excellent introduction to one of the most important spiritual classics of the Christian tradition is now reprinted in a new edition by popular demand. Full of solid insight, keen intuition and wise counsel for the spiritual journey, the book situates St Teresa's work in the context of the Carmelite tradition and of a contemporary understanding of holistic spirituality. One chapter is devoted to each of the seven spiritual mansions of The Interior Castle. From Ash to Fire is particuarly useful for those who are at the beginning of the spiritual journey, but has many valuable insights for all readers. Carolyn Humphreys uses easy to follow, lay person's language to describe each spiritual stage, relating it to the corresponding human dimension. You may recognize yourself in many of her vivid examples that relate to everyday experiences. She delicately brings to light that 'authentic humanness comes through a person who is dependent on God and interdependent on others, ' and thus guides you along the way with sound advice. Carolyn Humphreys is a registered occupational therapist and a Secular Discalced Carmelite.

Written in 1577 and first published in English in 1852, The Interior Castle is considered one of the greatest works of Catholic spiritual prose. A painting of the spirit within a Renaissance landscape, this allegory of the soul as a castle is both poetic and didactic. Written in address of women, this work describes the seven concentric groups of mansions within the soul, each aligned to one of the seven heavens, and here is the map which gently, and with love and prayer, leads the female spirit through war, fear, and humility, into the ultimate destination-the central court and a spiritual "marriage" to God. The works of Spanish nun SAINT TERESA OF AVILA (1515-1582) rank among the most extraordinary mystical writings of Roman Catholicism and among the classics of all religious traditions. Her writings include The Way of Perfection and her autobiography, The Life of Saint Teresa of Jesus.
