Publisher's Synopsis

Here are thematically grouped extracts from the major wisdom traditions, including the Way of Tao, the Way of Beauty (ancient Greece), the Way of Love in Action (Christianity), and from the writings of Kabir, Ramakrishna, Aurobindo, Plato, Marcus Aurelius, Rumi, Juliana of Norwich, John of the Cross, Meister Eckhart, and Teresa of Avila.

Paying special attention to the sacred feminine, these poignant selections illustrate the unique and inspiring personalities that embody the mystic experience.


"Many Western seekers, like myself, have been on long, complex journeys into the depths and disciplines of Eastern mysticism to find at the end of them a renewed wonder at the Christian inheritance."       ~Andrew Harvey, The Direct Path
