Program Description

Andrew Harvey believes we are undergoing a revelation of consciousness about who Christ really was and what his message truly meant. Harvey makes an important distinction between Christ and other prophets: “Other teachers say ‘This is the way you can get to the transcendent; here are the ways you can escape the illusion and horror of reality.’ Jesus instead came right down into the terrible suffering and agony of the real world, to work there with ever greater intensity and ever more passionate abandon to love, … creating the most terrifying challenge to human beings ever given by a teacher–for us to do the same.” Harvey passionately urges us to re-read the message of Christ, not filtered by the dogmatic teachings of church and state, but with awakened hearts and open minds, to rediscover not only his eternal message but the divine identity inside us all.

Harvey was raised in India and educated at Oxford. He is a renowned and distinguished mystical scholar, Rumi translator and explicator, poet, novelist, spiritual teacher and writer, and architect of Sacred Activism. He is the author of many books including Light Upon Light: Inspirations from Rumi (Meeramma 1988), Hidden Journey: A Spiritual Awakening (Henry Holt 991), The Way of Passion: A Celebration of Rumi (North Atlantic 1994), The Direct Path (Broadway Books 2000), Son of Man: The Mystical Path to Christ (Tarcher/Putnam 1998), Return to the Mother (Tarcher 2000), Light Upon Light (Tarcher 2004), Teachings of Rumi (Shambhala 1999), A Journey to Ladakh: Encounters with Buddhism (Mariner 2000), and The Hope: A Guide to Sacred Activism (Hay House, August 2009).
