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 a terrific presentation. I really like the contemporary way in which the interviewer approaches the questions. The listener feels that he is present at this conversation which is happening some 600+ years ago. Highly recommend but very profound!

An excellent introduction to Christian mysticism.
