Paula Pryce was raised in an inter-religious contemplative household and grew up with a fascination for the wisdom and myth of diverse cultures. She subsequently became a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Anthropology at the University of British Columbia. Her first book is Keeping the Lakes' Way: Reburial and the Re-creation of a Moral World among an Invisible People. It was followed by The Monk's Cell: Ritual and Knowledge in American Contemplative Christianity (Oxford University Press 2017), based on nearly four years of research among semi-cloistered Christian monastics and a dispersed network of non-monastic Christian contemplatives across the United States and around the globe. $74 9780190680589
