Christopher West and his muses...
"Passion for God" is an introduction to the spousal mysticism of St. Teresa of Avila. Here's how the back cover of the series describes it: "Inside the great medieval monastery at Avila, Spain, one of history's great love affairs took place. For it was here, within these turreted stone walls, that the Christian mystic St. Teresa surrendered her 'ensouled body' to God. What emerged from this divine union informs our spiritual lives to this day through the ecstatic 'spousal prayer' form that St. Teresa embraced so fiercely. ... Mother Tessa takes listeners far from the hard pews of dutiful worship and into a lush marriage chamber, where God is mystically experienced as spouse." - Source
That is New Age bunk.
