Course objectives:

  • Discuss the mystical teachings of Meister Eckhart—the vision and path aspects of non-dual consciousness, or sense of oneness that pervades all of our lives
  • Explain how the soul, as the interiority of ourselves, is capable of recognizing both the generosity of God, as well as inherent nothingness
  • Define the three ways of being a human being, three states of consciousness, or ways of being in the world—the life of the natural person, the human being illumined by faith, and the awakened path of seeing the intimacy of the unseen
  • Describe the importance of suffering, as well as the path of detachment, leading us toward disidentification—the path of inner liberation through the transformation of consciousness
  • Discuss surrender, silence, stillness in relationship to Eckhart's teachings—living the immediacy without a why and coming home to a state of wonderment

The 13th-century mystic Meister Eckhart was the most brilliant Christian scholar of his day, but he was also legendary for the way that he opened listeners to the direct experience of God during his public talks. Today, his written wisdom remains alive as ever, ready to illuminate us.

With Meister Eckhart’s Living Wisdom, James Finley, one of today’s best-known teachers of the Christian contemplative tradition, invites us into Eckhart’s insights in the same way that this luminary teacher delighted in sharing them—through the spoken word.

“The eye with which I see God is the eye with which God sees me.”

If the Divine dwells in all things, including ourselves, then why do we experience His presence only in fleeting moments, if at all? How do we let go of the illusions that imprison us to discover direct and felt liberation—not conceptually or in the afterlife—but right here and now? These were the questions that compelled Meister Eckhart to reflection, spiritual practice, and discovery.

In this in-depth learning program, James Finley guides us through teachings and meditations for bringing Meister Eckhart’s wisdom into our daily lives—to find for ourselves “the indestructible joy that that transcends even death,” and to experience God not as a separate being, but as the loving eternal center that sustains and embraces each of us and all of creation.


  • Meister Eckhart’s vision for finding God

  • The birth of the Word in the soul
  • Eckhartian meditation practice

  • Living the immediacy, and breaking through into the Godhead

Superb. Excellent. Wonderful Review by kenton

I have encountered no one who can lay out unsayble things like Dr. Finley. His heart, mind, and soul are in his speech, and he is so thoughtful. I am immersed currently in Eckhart studies. This teaching is simply superb and comes from a life lived with Eckhart's Sermons and teachings. Thank you so much.

Review for Meister Eckhart's Living Wisdom Review by Jo H

Finley's presentation is exciting and provocative of thought. His sometimes repetition is helpful since he is addressing the "impossible to articulate" and so going over it several times helps me find myself within the ideas he is presenting.

Review for Meister Eckhart's Living Wisdom Review by Abigail G

I love James Finely, and this program is as good as the rest. His style is so sincere, and the information is always a bit dense- really wonderful, but I always benefit by listening more than once.

Review for Meister Eckhart's Living Wisdom Review by yolanda r

Dr. Finley has such a penetrating and clear way of explaining the unexplainable, in such a humble manner. He touches my heart and opens it to new levels of understanding how the Divine resides in all of us. This workshop on Meister Eckhart is just another example.

Review for Meister Eckhart's Living Wisdom Review by Marietta D

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.

Review for Meister Eckhart's Living Wisdom Review by Allison F

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.

Review for Meister Eckhart's Living Wisdom Review by Peter

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.

Review for Meister Eckhart's Living Wisdom Review by KW

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.
