More Advance Praise for Eternal Heart

Advance Praise for Eternal Heart:

Eternal Heart is a generous invitation to enter into the heart of the mystery. Carl McColman offers a lens of love through which to gaze upon eternal gifts hidden in the very center of all that is. Such sacred seeing transforms what it beholds.

—​ Mirabai Starr
author of God of Love and Wild Mercy

There is likely in each of us a mystic within, waiting for us to open a door in the heart to release that hidden part of ourselves most in touch with the divine, and to embrace it and nurture it. Eternal Heart shows us how to unlock that door so that we can seek what is eternal and sacred in all things — our conversations, walks, and all we see, taste and hear. It is a book whose “heart practices” we will feel drawn to repeatedly over the different seasons of our lives.”

Judith Valente

Eternal Heart is a work of humanly sung companionship… as timely as it is transcendent. The author reminds us that becoming more truly human is not only the first step toward the mystical vocation; it is the primary practical assignment of life on earth and the first step toward a fruitful and contemporary holiness.

In his newest book, Carl McColman invites readers to journey into the depths of the heart and find the spiritual gifts that await each of us there. While drawing primarily from the Christian tradition, he includes other religions, too, and shows how their wisdom teachings exist in dialogue to guide us along the heart’s path. McColman himself is a gentle and wise guide to the inner life. With beauty and simplicity, he opens the gifts of the heart, encouraging us to receive the blessings that sometimes lie hidden until we’re able to see them anew. I recommend Eternal Heart for all who seek to experience life’s blessings in a more loving and intimate way.

For years, I have loved using a set of prayer beads that I made myself, moving my fingers along the strand to center my heart. Moving through the chapters of Eternal Heart is like praying with a string of smooth beads.  Each one invites a sacred pause, and, together, they are a work of prayerful beauty.
