Description

Into the Mystic is a contemporary spiritual autobiography written from a mystical perspective that introduces the reader to the hidden life of twentieth-century Canadian mystic, Olga Park. The book consists of a series of vignettes and poems written by the author and by Park as well as some illustrations of Park’s own spiritually inspired artistic creations. It explores the relation of the female spiritual seeker to her wisdom teacher, guru, and spiritual mentor, and addresses timeless questions about the relation of time to eternity, the nature and emergence of consciousness, direct mystical experience etc. in a contemporary Canadian context. The book synthesizes memoir, spiritual autobiography, biography, personal narrative, and poetry in an innovative way.
