Both Eastern and Western mystical traditions emphasize one profound process: the transformation of the individual into God-likeness. This is the means and the end of Christian salvation. Jaoudi's beautifully written book reflects on transformation, wholeness, and healing as presented by Christian mystics of both East and West. It also explores how these ideas parallel the global insights found in Hinduism, Taoism, Islam, and especially Buddhism. The mystics and traditions examined include Catherine of Sienna, Symeon the New Theologian, Bonaventure, Gregory of Nyssa, Meister Eckhart, and the Jesus Prayer. The author also looks at spirituality and iconic painting, music, and poetry. Taken together, this collected wisdom shows how to navigate one's thoughts, emotions, body, dreams, and aspirations while maintaining focus on spiritual development. This is a deeply moving book for all spiritual seekers.
