Son of Man : the mystical path to Christ by Andrew Harvey( Book )

"Using the best of modern historical scholarship and the testimony of the greatest Christian mystics through the ages, author and educator Andrew Harvey revives the revolutionary promise of early Christianity and reveals Jesus as the Son of Man: a mystical radical whose aim was the initiation of all human beings into the power and splendor of their innate divinity, the overturning of all unjust hierarchies, and the transformation of the Earth into the Kingdom of God." "In the final section of the book, Harvey provides a comprehensive array of practices and meditations designed specifically to help readers live and enact the Direct Union inherent in this vision of the Christ path. These practices are drawn largely from the early Christian mystical traditions and also from the author's own experiences of Hinduism, Sufism, and Tibetan Buddhism. A section of meditative readings, taken from the full range of the Christian tradition, provides living inspiration for each reader's personal journey into the Heart of Christ."--BOOK JACKET

Burning houses by Andrew Harvey( Book )

12 editions published between 1986 and 1988 in English and Portuguese and held by 336 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Burning Houses, Andrew Harvey has taken the novel form and extended it to grand opera, with all its glitter and drama, flourish and tragedy. Charles, a writer living Paris, is invited by Adolphe, a famous film director, to read his novel to him. Their meetings enmesh the reader in two plots: one developing in the encounters between Charles and Adolphe; the other contained in Charles's novel, the account of his relationship with Mark, a married man. Like a turning crystal, the story reveals the facets of love: the sexual passion between Charles and Mark; the long friendship between Charles and Anna (an outspoken beauty who appears in both plots); and the luminous platonic love between Adolphe and Charles that is akin to a merging of souls. Each character undergoes a transformation, a growth into knowledge that brings the reader to a deep understanding of self-awareness through suffering, honesty, and humor"--Dust jacket flap

The essential gay mystics( Book )

8 editions published between 1997 and 2002 in English and held by 310 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The mystic experience is the direct, unmediated experience of what Bede Griffiths described as "the presence of an almost unfathomable mystery ... which seems to be drawing me to itself." This awakening to a divine, eternal presence is always described in terms of wonder, adoration, and rapture, as an ecstatic and intimate communion. Frequently, accounts of such glimpses beyond the curtain of day-to-day reality take the form of poetry, and often the metaphors used to detail the indescribable are those of passionate union with a divine lover." "From Sappho to Whitman, Vergil to Audre Lorde, same-gender lovers have been foremost in the ranks of artists whose work reflects this "vision of the sacredness of love, a belief that the divine revels in our passion for joy and beauty, and manifests through and in it." Now Andrew Harvey - teacher, poet, and mystic, as well as frequent writer and lecturer on mystic experience, the Sufi poet Rumi, and the divine feminine - brings together a bountiful and unprecedented selection of gay, lesbian, and bisexual writers whose works illuminate the mystical path. Not surprisingly, many of these texts take the form of the most ardent love lyrics and psalms to male and female beauty, for this is the radical gift of the gay mystics: the lesson that the transcendent union with the divine can come through the body and the senses, rather than by denial of the body and asceticism." "The Essential Gay Mystics includes texts from the Greeks and Romans (Sappho, Plato, Euripides; Vergil, Horace, the "Galli"), the Native American berdache tradition, the ancient Far East (Qu Yuan, Kukai, Basho), and the Persian Sufi traditions (Attar, Sadi, Hafiz, Jami), as well as works from literary figures from the Renaissance to the twentieth century, each presented with a short biographical introduction. Michelangelo, who in his sonnets explored the mystery of the relationship between human and divine beauty, who set himself the sacred task of transmuting human desire into divine love, wrote, "All that we have of wisdom and of faith / Derives from earth, and if I love you with / Fervour, I shall reach God and find sweet death."" "Harvey asks us to consider some familiar voices in a different light, as well as introducing readers of some less well-known writers whose words fairly scorch the page. From the ecstatic poetry of seventeenth-century Spanish nun Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz to Thoreau's poignant "Lately, Alas, I Knew a Gentle Boy" to Emily Dickinson's wild nights and curious wine to the hallucinatory prose of Jean Cocteau and the gorgeous hymn to female sexuality in Audre Lorde's "Woman Forever," the scope and heartfelt intensity of these selections will make The Essential Gay Mystics an invaluable sourcebook for all seekers, especially gay men and lesbians searching for readings for commitment ceremonies and other celebratory occasions. The book is a lasting testament to the revolutionary power and transformative gifts of same-sex love."--BOOK JACKET

Teachings of Rumi by Jalāl al-Dīn Rūmī( Book )

5 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jelalludin Rumi (1207-1273) led the quiet life of an Islamic teacher in the central Anatolia (modern Turkey) until the age of thirty-seven, when he met a wandering dervish named Shams Tabriz-through whom he encountered the Divine Presence in a way that utterly transformed him. The result of this epiphany was the greatest body of mystical poetry the world has ever seen, and the establishment of a spiritual movement that would eventually stretch from Africa to China, enduring to our own day. This collection of versions of Rumi by Andrew Harvey contains some of the master's most luminous verse, along with selections from his lesser-read prose works, with the aim of presenting a balanced view of his teaching that includes both the high-flying love of God and the rigorous path of discipline essential for those who seek it

The return of the mother by Andrew Harvey( Book )

3 editions published between 1995 and 2001 in English and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Adapted from a series of lectures on the historical basis and current resurgence of the sacred feminine, given by Andrew Harvey at the California Institute of Integral Studies in Spring 1994, The Return of the Mother is a profound journey into the heart of the Divine Mother. In this comprehensive and groundbreaking work, mystical scholar Andrew Harvey unearths traces of the sacred feminine in major world religions'Hinduism, Islam (Sufism), Buddhism, Taoism, and Christianity'and in aboriginal and indigenous wisdom traditions. Harvey presents a scathing critique of the patriarchal distortions in religious history and doctrine that have obscured full knowledge of the Divine Mother, and shows how to reintegrate this vital aspect into the spiritual consciousness of humankind. The Return of the Mother offers a radical new perspective, balancing the historical overemphasis on transcendence by honoring the immanence of the divine in passionate engagement in the world. Only by cultivating a direct, respectful relationship with the transformative power of the sacred feminine can we alter our disastrous attitude of dissociation from nature, the body, sexuality, and the details of human life, and generate the energy and compassion needed to reverse the course of destruction we have set the planet'and all of life'hurtling toward. In lively question-and-answer sections, Harvey further illuminates these vital issues and takes a strong stand against our dependence on "gurus" and "masters," proposing instead an egalitarian model of spiritual community based on intimate groups of mutually supportive guides and friends. The Return of the Mother is an eloquent and passionate call for all of us to rediscover and reclaim an authentic and empowering relationship to the divine, and recreate a sacred life-in-the-world
