What do we mean when we speak of contemplative experience? Do we define it or we can just approached it from the limits and the paradoxes of the language? Do we know to distinguish between contemplation and meditation? Is it the experience of unity which opens us to the astonishment, unveiling and revealing the legacy of the sources of wisdom?
This book is an invitation to embrace the diversity from which we approach to these and other questions. Because, beyond the experience, either induced or spontaneous, conscious cultivation leads to the contemplative dimension of the human being; be fully from an ethical and spiritual commitment.
Eleven experts invite us to enter into these themes, with rigour and passion, from the richness of the multiplicity of languages and experiences. Their texts will bring us the transcultural spiritual legacy through three-way deep and essentially human knowledge: mysticism, philosophy and art.
