Journeys of the Heart - A Meister Eckhart workshop

St Luke's Prestonville
64 Old Shoreham Road



A day for those who hunger for depth in life led by Professor Mark Burrows. Mark is a poet and scholar of medieval theology and professor of religion and literature at the Protestant University of Applied Sciences in Bochum, Germany. Our focus will be Meister Eckhart, a 13th Century priest and mystic and one of Christianity’s greatest literary and spiritual voices. TICKETS available through Eventbrite: £22 standard, £14 concessions. The day is being co-organised with the Centre for Spirituality.

“Into this clutter of the spiritual industry the clarity of Meister Eckhart’s teaching shines like a light that refreshes and relieves.” John O’Donohue “If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, ‘thank you’, that would suffice.” Meister Eckhart
The freshness of Eckhart’s imagery and the depth and universality of his teaching has attracted spiritual seekers, both Christian and non-Christian alike, down the centuries. Eckhart wrote at a time – much like our own – when society appeared to be coming apart at the seams. The day will offer a chance to live into Eckhart's wisdom, drawing on poetic rendering of Eckhart’s teaching by Mark Burrows, together with selections from Eckhart's sermons. The question that will guide us, as it did Eckhart, is what it means to live into love as the very heart of our lives? No prior knowledge of Eckhart required.
