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

The essential gay mystics( Book )

7 editions published between 1997 and 2002 in English and held by 304 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

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.

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
