Customer Reviews for Meister Eckhart's Living Wisdom

It was the best explanation of Meister Eckhart that I have ever heard. James Finley dealt with this profound subject matter with intelligence, clarity and wit. It's been a joy to hear him.
Since I bought the CD I've been listening to him every day. Now I wish he'd do more with other mystics as well. His presentation not only reveals a keen mind, but a compassionate and loving heart. Presentations like this are not easy to come by. Congratulations to Sounds True for making this happen.

James Finley is one of the deepest and most transforming work that I have had the pleasure to download from sounds true. I am still working on the transmission about Meister Eckhart and will be for some time. I am very grateful for this and Finley's incredible soft tone of wisdom.

I concur with KW’s review, although I found in this instance the reading speed to be somewhat faster than Jim’s normal ‘retreat’ speed. This is probably because it is a studio recording. However, as each segment is about 10 minutes, I found it easy to review and eventually either got used to the speed or James slowed down. In all, through his various materials, James has provided a well packed lunch for the mystic pilgrim’s backpack, as he/she sets off in search of ‘the palace of nowhere’ and looks over his/her shoulder as James waves a fond farewell. Many thanks Jim.

Here is Finley being the Master that he truly is. Here Master Finley hits the ball out of park, where it belongs. I've been his student for 20 years, and his teachings in this series is his magnum opus. Finley here honors the persistence of divine creativeness and, accordingly, speaks to the conscious balance between contemplative tradition in the larger sense — divinity working at large, realized here in Meister Eckhart and his ever present originality offered to the living generation. In short it's timeless...and I find NOTHING in this that disappoints! It's a beautiful work, inspired, and the best teaching I've ever heard.
