Detachment – Christine Valters Paintner

June 3, 2019

“The desert monks knew that detachment from one’s own desires created more space and freedom to be available to others. When we recognize that the world does not revolve around our own desires and needs, we discover that we can be a healing presence to others.”

  — Christine Valters Paintner, PhD, Desert Mothers and Fathers: Early Christian Wisdom Sayings Annotated and Explained
