Now with The Living Wisdom of Howard Thurman, you can hear some of the most powerful recordings from this treasured spiritual luminary.

This is a jewel of a finding. Though he has been dead for 30 years, he truly was a Mystic and it's a blessing to our culture today that those who knew him have been so generous to rekindle his sermons and lectures for us now. He is ageless in his consciousness and his delivery is a resurrection of a heart of the Black that can teach us wisdom and love. Well worth taking the time to listen, meditate, listen again and take his great sense of life into our own hearts so we might actually experience "unity".
