Barbara Fiand (Author)

Barbara Fiand teaches spirituality at the Institute of Pastoral Studies of Loyola University Chicago and is the author of books that include From Religion Back to Faith: A Journey of the Heart and In the Stillness You Will Know: Exploring the Paths of Our Ancient Belonging. She lives in Cincinnati, Ohio.

  1. Barbara Fiand is Research Professor of Spirituality at Loyola University, Chicago. This is a “revisited, revised, and expanded” version of her book Living the Vision: Religious Vows in an Age of Change (1900). Using the wisdom gained from lectures, retreats, and workshops she conducts, she first reflects on the “age of change” in which religious live their vows and on the dualistic worldview of the past centuries, which is giving way to a holistic spirituality and to more authentic ways of seeing. Then she applies these reflections to poverty, celibacy, community, creative fidelity, and “organic” incorporation of new members.
