If we would participate in the movement afoot in our world today – to move from secondhand, institutional religion to firsthand, direct-encounter spirituality – then it would behoove us to pay attention to the mystics in our tradition. We’ve tended to honor them only after they’re gone. “The only good mystic is a dead one.”
In this lesson I’m making the case that it is time to bring our mystics out of the attic of our tradition, and give them an honored place in the mainstream.
Have a listen.
