Dialogue On The Path Of Initiation: An Introduction To The Thought Of Karlfried Graf Dürckheim. by Karlfried Graf Durckheim And Alphonse Goettmann, Trans.

The reader will find in this book the clearest expression of the teachings of Karlfried Graf Durckheim. This book is a bestseller in Europe and has been translated into several languages. Durckheim is especially important to our times because he focuses on the individual's experience of the transcendent rather than traditional teachings on the subject of spiritual development. Yet his wisdom is informed by the best in Christian spiritual teachings (especially Meister Eckhart and the early Fathers), Zen Buddhism (he spend eight years with masters in Japan), and in humanistic psychology. In some ways, he may be called the father of transpersonal psychology. Anyone searching for authentic awakening or encounter with the divine will find pratical and life-changing insights in this book. Regardless of the reader's background, this book goes to the heart of the matter: each person's pragmatic experience of higher consciousness.

Sagda
Karlfried Graf Durckmann was a German psychologist whose aim was not to adjust his patients to society, but to further their spiritual development. His work is being carried on by his colleagues and followers at the institute he founded in the Black Forest area. This is a translation of his interview with a Christian Orthodox priest who was one of his followers, and a good introduction for English-speaking readers to his life and work.

I'm a tremendous fan of Durckheim's, but this self-serving interview-style book doesn't do his life or work justice. If Goetlman was as interested in Durckheim as he was about his own pontifications then you'd have a book worth reading. I was sadly disappointed in the format (which was misleading based on editorial) and the general style and tenor of the books content. I will stick with the words and teachings of Durckheim as he presented them from now on.

iF you are a seeker of deep spiritual wisdom, and can appreciate the depth of writing style, and knowledge in spiritual writings then this book will not disappoint. Karlfried Graf Durkheim spent much of his life in pursuit of higher consciousness, and in his path met the likes of DT Suzuki, and Car Jung. He freed hundreds maybe thousands of souls with practical Christian Mystical teachings handed down from the early church fathers. On of his primary pupils, and a sage in his own right Father Alphonse Goettman does the interviewing of Durkheim, and asks all the "important" questions. Ted Nottingham does a masterful job of translating this book previously not available in english. Nottingham is a longtime veteran of spiritual methodology, a practicing minister, and spiritual guide as well....Pick this up, if you dare.
