Meister Eckhart’s Book of Darkness and Light Meditations on the Path of the Wayless WayFebruary 15, 2023 By Collegeville Institute Mark S. Burrows Jon M. Sweeney Charlottesville, VA, Hampton Roads , 03/01/2023 "Visit this title on the publishers website" Meister Eckhart’s radical vision has provoked, inspired, and baffled readers since his lifetime in the early 14th century. This is a collection of meditative poems–co-written with Jon M. Sweeney–inspired by the Meister’s writings. They “revoice” his timeless wisdom for contemporary readers, suggesting how the darkness we face can become the place where light awaits us–for we each carry the “little spark” (or “Fünklein”) within us. As Padraig O Tuama has said of this new book, “Here. . .are poems as elegant as they are scholarly, revoic[ing] Meister Eckhart’s grounding and expansive instructions to ‘seek the light that shines/ out of the darkness.'” Like this post?
