Cynthia Bourgeault
From the Egoic Mind to the Mind of the Heart.
The Teaching and Lived Experience of the Christian Contemplative Path.

The great spiritual traditions unanimously affirm that beyond the boundaried egoic consciousness typically identified along the psychological spectrum as "myself" lies a more spacious, unboundaried selfhood whose attainment (variously known as "non-dual realization," "enlightenment," or "Christ consciousness") comprises the true fulfilment of our human journey. In this interview/essay, Cynthia Bourgeault expounds upon her signature insight that the way toward this state is not through "dismantling the ego" but through nurturing the heart in its foundational role as the seat of non-dual perception.
