Joe Grant and the Duty of Delight

Joe Grant is a Scotland-born modern-day mystic, spiritual guide, retreat leader at Holy Hills Hermitage in rural Kentucky. He is the author of numerous books and articles about scripture, justice and spirituality. Joe has worked with indigenous peoples of the U.S. and in Latin America. In this conversation, originally released on February 27, 2020, Joe reflects on his spiritual journey, which has led him to live with indigenous peoples deep in the Amazon rainforest, as well as making a home amid the pain and violence of inner-city Louisville. In all of this, Joe follows a vocation of heart-wide-open engagement with our beautiful, wounded world.
