Publisher's Summary

The 13th-century mystic Meister Eckhart was the most brilliant Christian scholar of his day, but he was also legendary for the way that he opened listeners to the direct experience of God during his public talks. Today, his written wisdom remains alive as ever, ready to illuminate us.

With Meister Eckhart's Living Wisdom, James Finley, one of today’s best-known teachers of the Christian contemplative tradition, invites us into Eckhart's insights in the same way that this luminary teacher delighted in sharing them - through the spoken word. "The eye with which I see God is the eye with which God sees me." If the Divine dwells in all things, including ourselves, then why do we experience His presence only in fleeting moments, if at all? How do we let go of the illusions that imprison us to discover direct and felt liberation - not conceptually or in the afterlife - but right here and now? These were the questions that compelled Meister Eckhart to reflection, spiritual practice, and discovery. In this in-depth learning program, James Finley guides us through teachings and meditations for bringing Meister Eckhart's wisdom into our daily lives to find for ourselves "the indestructible joy that that transcends even death," and to experience God not as a separate being, but as the loving eternal center that sustains and embraces each of us and all of creation.
