Listed here you will find some of the resources that have contributed to my own thinking about the desert and contemplative practice.  It is personal, provisional, and still-unfolding.

+Ruben Martinez, “Conjuring the Desert”. A reflection on one attempt to employ the desert as a focal point for an interdisciplinary course at a contemporary North American university.

+Paul Bowles, The Sheltering Sky. (See Tennessee Williams’ probing 1949 review of Bowles’ work)
