Summary

Summary

Both Eastern & Western mystical traditions emphasize one profound process: the transformation of the individual in God-likeness. This beautifully written book reflects on transformation, wholeness, & healing, as presented by Christian mystics of both East & West. It also explores how these ideas parallel the global insights found in Hinduism, Taoism, Islam, & especially Buddhism. Tapping this wide range of sources, the author matches ordinary experiences in the outer world with the extraordinary experiences of the inner world, showing how to maintain a continuous awareness of God's presence in the everyday. This is critical help in navigating one's thoughts, emotions, body, dreams, & aspirations while maintaining a centered focus on spiritual development.
