In today’s world we desperately need a mysticism that speaks to our human condition. A new mysticism that is rooted in the depth of our wisdom traditions, but is also wildly open to the diversity of our earth and human needs.
This podcast is lecture number 10 from “The Longing Heart” series. I address how this vision of unity was actualized in the lives and thought of the social mystics, including Thomas Merton, Mahatma Gandhi, Abraham Joshua Heschel, and others.
