Summary

"At the heart of our universe, each soul exists for God, in our lord." (Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, The Divine Milieu)

Take an unforgettable retreat with Teilhard de Chardin's masterpiece: The Divine Milieu. A Jesuit priest and scientist, Teilhard's powerful vision of the universe has influenced countless spiritual seekers. Written in the 1920s but published posthumously, The Divine Milieu is a spiritual work at once cosmic and personal. Mapping the horizons of transcendence and intimacy, it illuminates the boundless contours of our true nature and home in God. Now, this retreat invites you to reflect upon Teilhard's timeless thought. Presented by gifted professor, Teilhard expert, and author Sr. Kathleen Deignan, CND, this six-conference series will transform your spiritual imagination and cosmic consciousness. An accomplished musician, Sr. Deignan weaves her beautiful, acclaimed music in with her profound exploration of The Divine Milieu. You are invited to nurture the "cosmic contemplative", deepen your Christic life, and serve the world with greater enlightenment and soul.

In this retreat you will explore the profound paradoxes of Teilhard's evolutionary spirituality. Orienting you through the landscape and inscape of the sacred, Teilhard will challenge you to visit the mystical terrain of your cosmic neighborhood. Illumined by his wisdom, you will venture on an itinerary he walked before us. With the spiritual master Teilhard as your guide, you will encounter the sacred dimensions of the evolving cosmos and the interior terrain of the evolving human soul.

Disappointed

I have already read The Divine Milieu and was hoping for something to give me a little more insight, but instead it was a brief and not helpful overview of the life and thought of Teilhard. The audiobook is a little over 2 hours, but Sister Deignan doesn't even start talking about the book until an hour into it. When she does, it's superficial. She gives but a brief mention of two of the book's main sections - divinisation of activities and divinisation of passivities. She throws in some other things like Eastern mysticism which, while valid and analogous to Teilhard's thought, weren't what I was wanting to hear.
I'm racking my brain on who might benefit from this audiobook, but can't come up with anyone. If you want a review of the life and thought of Teilhard, the audiobook by Goergen (Teilhard de Chardin's Cosmic Christology and Christian Cosmology) is much better. If you want some insight into The Divine Milieu, then the subject audiobook isn't the place.
Sister Deignan has a slow, deliberate, and emotional delivery which was distracting and didn't really help me follow what she was saying.
