Becoming a mystic: journey, discipline and practice

The continuing popularity of writers such as Thomas Merton reminds us that many people in the churches and beyond long to share his insights and to experience the mysticism described in his writings.

But what exactly is a mystical experience? What does it feel like? What afterglow (or even aftershocks) does it leave you with? In Dolphin’s Leap, Hind’s Feet, a contemporary Australian mystic tries to explain himself to clarify what it is like to be a mystic, to describe the mystical tradition in the church and, significantly, how to become one.

He shows us that if we seek to develop authentic spiritual awareness, this will almost always entail a journey, an inner pilgrimage to identify the techniques that work for you and how to use them with regularity.

Dolphin’s Leap, Hind’s Feet explores the approaches and disciplines, used by teachers of spirituality over the centuries and tries to give an insight into the lived reality of the saints, seers and mystics, including their range and depth. The book is intentionally practical, attempting to take the reader inside the mystic’s mind. Most of the chapters contain exercises or practical applications of the ideas discussed in the chapter.
