Path of the Heart
A Spiritual Guide to the Divine
Expanded Edition with Commentary
“This is a precise roadmap for the right brain, the chambers of the heart, and the pathways of the spirit. Those who seek to go from heart to heart, from human to divine will find it a reliable guide.”
Path of the Heart is a modern spiritual classic, and the first written account of the life-changing mystical revelations of divine suffering and divine love that Beverly Lanzetta experienced in 1976. Completed in 1984, and published in 1985, the text describes the interior process of mystical intimacy or union, combining insights from her own transformation with those she witnessed in the souls of people who came to her for spiritual guidance.
Now published in a new expanded edition with Beverly’s commentary on each chapter, Path of the Heart is a guide for those who deeply yearn for spiritual meaning in life. “I hope” she says, “that by passing on the underlying method of the mystical journey, my fellow seekers will be aided in their own search for the Unknown.”
This is a precise roadmap for the right brain, the chambers of the heart, and the pathways of the spirit. Those who seek to go from heart to heart, from human to divine will find it a reliable guide.
–Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Schalomi, professor emeritus of Jewish Mysticism at Temple University
Beverly Lanzetta presents the spiritual journey in a style that is at once universal and rooted in classical wisdom. She describes the desire for the spiritual quest, its stages, obstacles, its progressive unfolding, and its culmination. . . a rare combination of mature spiritual wisdom and poetic quality that transcends confessional lines and other boundaries.
–Ewert H. Cousins, editor of the Classics of Western Spirituality and professor emeritus of theology at Fordham University
