Eckhart's daring journey into the terrain of mystical experience, complete with its theology of paradox and negation, was threatening to certain sectors in the church at the time. Mystical experience often defies logic and therefore is easliy misunderstood and quickly labeled as dangerous. . . .

Thich Nhat Hanh is a spiritual master and mystic of our own times, one who has feasted abundantly at the table of spiritual practice while at the same time sharing generously the fruits of his practice with millions of people across the world. . . .

These and many other saintly sages and prophets have taken the risk of building a beautiful bridge spanning the gap between East and West, laying the foundation for many of us to touch deeply the riches of our own traditions with the help and the light that shine forth from other spiritual legacies.
