Eileen Flanagan has taught Discerning Our Calls and other courses in the Pendle Hill Resident Program for years. Spiritual discernment has been a theme of her writing. Her first book, Listen with Your Heart: Seeking the Sacred in Romantic Love, began as a Festival Week presentation during her time as a Pendle Hill resident staff member in 1993.
Since then she has authored the Pendle Hill pamphlet God Raising Us: Parenting as a Spiritual Practice (PHP #396) and the book The Wisdom to Know the Difference, which was endorsed by the Dalai Lama and won a 2010 silver Nautilus Book Award. Eileen holds a BA from Duke University and an MA from Yale. To learn more about her work, visit http://www.eileenflanagan.com.
