Product Description

Overview

Our 2015 surveys of seminaries and men’s and women’s religious communities indicate some interesting differences in men and women’s perceptions of healthy and unhealthy celibacy.This and other research on how men and women differ in their experience of sexuality and celibacy can help to better shape our approaches to forming candidates for a life of chaste celibacy. Br. John Mark Falkenhain, OSB, Ph.D. and Sr. Jane Becker, OSB, Ph.D. explore this body of research, discuss some implications of the findings and facilitate a conversation around the unique challenges and opportunities that arise in directing formation with women and men.
