Description

Windborne Productions is pleased to present this one-hour documentary on one of the most significant spiritual leaders of our generation, Henri Nouwen. A Roman Catholic priest, University of Notre Dame, Yale and Harvard professor, author and social activist, Nouwen possessed a unique insight into the human condition. Through his many books, which continue to be widely popular, Nouwen wrote passionately and eloquently about our human frailty and brokenness, while identifying and addressing the spiritual needs of today.

Journey of the Heart is a thought-provoking look at the life of this unassuming, charismatic scholar considered by many of his contemporaries as one of the best and brightest minds of his time. Abandoning the insular works of academia, Nouwen embarked on a radical and personal pilgrimage of downward mobility that led him to L'Arche, a community of people with developmental disabilities.

This documentary features an inspiring conversation with Nouwen shot just a year before his death. Interviews with key friends, prominent colleagues and family members help complete the picture of this unique man of faith – a person of passion and compassion. Fullscreen.

Editorial Reviews

This documentary of Henri Nouwen's life is very well done. Not only does it give a glimpse into the spiritual life of this powerful author and speaker, it also provides an intimate look at Nouwen as a person. From his ambition to become a Roman Catholic priest at five years old and throughout his life, Nouwen's greatest desire was to follow Christ's leading and to help others to do the same. I have read many of his books for counseling and theology courses. After watching "Journey of the Heart," I am interested in reading additional books mentioned as the documentary revealed details of Nouwen's life and circumstances. Nouwen combined spirituality and psychology in order to draw people into community with themselves, other people and Jesus Christ. The "Wounded Healer" and other titles remain popular worldwide. The documentary includes interviews with Henri, himself, along with his brothers and sister, friends, and colleagues. Those who have read his books will appreciate knowing how these books came to be and the authenticity of this amazing man. Those who have not yet read any of Nouwen's work will be encouraged to sample from his wide selection of spiritually encouraging materials. I highly recommend this documentary. It is an appropriate resource for counselor's, clergy, congregational, and academic libraries. - Reviewed by Sharon Hinton RN, BSN, LP, Librarian, First United Methodist Church, Floydada, and RNR Parish Nurse Community Outreach Library, Floydada, TX
