Building on his weekly Daily Mail column of the same name, Simon looks at how practical mysticism can become integrated in our lives – whatever our particular beliefs. Mysticism is the stream which runs beneath all the great religions, linking them both in constant tension between essence and form, and the ultimate kindness of the universe.
Simon Parke was a priest in the Church of England for 20 years. He is now a freelance writer, retreat giver and consultant. He writes a weekly column for the Church Times, and one for the Daily Mail called ‘One-Minute Mystic’.
