A Red Book Dialogue from Talk To Me from January 2010. It’s a fascinating and important and necessarily damning talk. I took a Rumi course as well as the Christ Path course from Andrew Harvey in the last couple of years. His life is drenched in the numinous and he’s quite a delightful teacher I was honored to learn with. I’m reposting the below interview.
Andrew Harvey, scholar and author of many books on spirituality, joined Jungian analyst Nathan Schwartz-Salant on the Rubin Museum stage this past month as a part of “The Red Book Dialogue” series.
During the dialogue, inspired by The Red Book image shown here, Harvey commented on an inborn hatred of our physical selves, saying that humans are in “a boat of meat that is now exploding,” and the struggle we all go through in acknowledging and loving the evil that’s within all of us.
