Conversations with Meister Eckhart is an imagined conversation with this 13th-century mystic, around such themes as detachment, which he famously placed above love; spirituality; God; the soul; and suffering. But while the conversation is imagined, Eckhart's words are not; they are authentically his own.

This is the first time that I have shared Meister Eckharts words, and my first time with an audio book, both were a pleasure that blended perfectly in this conversational format. The setting that Simon Parke describes, the questions, the prompts, the probes, allowed the wisdom, held within the text, to become more accessible. While the portrayal of Meister Eckhart by Andy Harrison made the experience more personal, it felt like I was directly sharing the thoughts of this courageous, learned man.

I would like to thank all involved for what they have created...truly memorable.
