Podcast of the Day: Meister Eckhart: The spark of the divine is inside everyone

In the latest episode of The Christian Mysticism Podcast, Dr. Carlos Eire and I discuss Meister Eckhart, a unique mystic who believed the spark of the divine existed inside every person and that God was found within oneself, not outside oneself. A very popular 14th century theologian and preacher, Eckhart’s teachings were ultimately deemed heretical by Pope John XXII, who put him on trial for heresy. Nevertheless, even though he died before his trial was completed, Meister Eckhart’s loyal disciples continued his legacy for centuries.
