Summary

Today, Meister Eckhart is recognized as one the great mystics. Yet, until now, his spiritual doctrine was not easy to comprehend. Now, you are invited on a retreat that will demystify Eckhart’s spiritual wisdom. 

Meister Eckhart remains the outstanding representative of Germany’s medieval Rhineland mysticism. While our knowledge of Eckhart’s life is limited, we can see that he was an active mystic in his preaching, teaching, and writing. His boldness of speech is matched by his power to integrate what seem like irreconcilable opposites. These six retreat conferences, led by master professor Donald Goergen, O.P., PhD, will give you a concise, powerful introduction to Eckhart’s spiritual thought. 

After learning about his life and historical context, you will reflect upon the most salient themes of his spirituality. In doing so, you will gain access to deep spiritual wisdom that is relevant for all times and especially our own. You will thus consider his understanding of the birth of the Word in the “ground of the soul”, his concept of detachment, his exaltation of Martha, and finally, the incomprehensible God that Eckhart calls “mercy”. 

As you journey through his wisdom, you will gain deep insights not only into Eckhart’s thought, but also into God, yourself, and the world. Join Fr. Goergen on this powerful exploration today.

This course is part of the Learn25 collection.

Very good overview with insights

Very good review of the Meisters' view of conversion of the soul. Certainly connects many dots on contemplation and action. Reminded me of God's work in the soul, and step 3 of AA.

Skip this audio and read/listen to the actual work of Meister Eckhart. Terrible audio.
