Journey of the Heart 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.
