Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this classic introduction to mysticism, Underhill draws on hundreds of sources to present a unique study of the mystical experience.

Synopsis:

This remarkable book is Underhill's most critically acclaimed work and possibly the most important text on the subject. It is a text that shows how the world of the mystic is within everyone's reach, and shares an inspiring vision of what this world offers to those who enter it. Discussing the works of such great mystics as Meister Eckhart, St. John of the Cross, St. Teresa of Avila, Rumi and Attar, Mysticism draws on hundreds of sources from all over the world to study human spiritual consciousness.

Synopsis:

Written for anyone who wishes to pursue a thorough investigation into the mystical life, this text provides an introduction to mysticism and a complete guide to the mystical path.

Synopsis:

LONG REGARDED AS A CLASSIC TEXT, AND written by the foremost authority on the subject, Mysticism remains the pre-eminent study of humanity's spiritual consciousness.

Drawing on the voices of such great mystics as Meister Eckhart, St John of the Cross, St Teresa of Avila, Rumi and 'Attar, Underhill offers a unique account of the multi-dimensional world of the mystic, from psychology and symbolism to visions and contemplation. She both introduces mysticism and examines the stages of mystical awakening that lead the human soul from a life of sense to a spiritual life in harmony with the Absolute — however it is understood.

Perhaps most importantly, Underhill shows how the mystical experience is within reach of us all, and presents an inspiring vision of what this world offers to those who choose to enter it.
