Meditations with Meister Eckhart: A Centering Book

14.00

This book of simple but rich meditations exemplifies the deep yet playful creation-centered spirituality of Meister Eckhart, a 13th-century mystic, prophet, feminist, activist and defender of the poor who was condemned shortly after he died. “These quiet presentations of spirituality are remarkable for their immediacy and clarity.” --Publishers Weekly.  Meister Eckhart was a 13th-century Dominican preacher who was mystic, prophet, feminist, and advocate of creation-centered spirituality. This tradition affirms humanity’s potential to act divinely, and it embraces life--living and dying, growing old and sinning, groaning and celebrating--as the creative energy of God in motion. Eckhart recognized that we are all “other Christs” and for him to be spiritual is to be awake and alive. Creation itself was for him the primary sacrament that begins from “the spring of life” or the heart.  For Eckhart, justice-making and mysticism go together.  Eckhart’s pathway and that of the creation tradition is a simple way. It demands no gurus, no fanciful methods, no protracted exercises or retreats. This is why he called it a “wayless way” that is available to everyone, and why he points out that the person “who has found this way needs no other.”  It culminates in compassion and justice-making for “compassion means justice.”
