A List Of Teachers (Partial)

Harvey is a scholar of mystic traditions. He envisions true spirituality to be the divinisation of earthly life through spiritual practice. These practices can take many forms and can be taken from religious traditions. Harvey sees six poets and religious figures as having universal appeal:

Buddha as portrayed in the Dhammapada

Jesus as portrayed in the Gospel of Thomas

Rumi, a 13th century Sufi poet

Kabir, a 15th century Indian poet

Ramakrishna, a 19th century Hindu sadhu

Aurobindo, a 20th century Hindu philosopher-sage

Harvey also emphasises the Divine Feminine, as expressed in the Virgin Mary, Kali, the Black Madonna and Mother Earth.

But no actual, historical, flesh and blood women?  Hmmmm
Not even Mother Meera?  Or Dorothy Walters?
Could all those  great male teachers  have failed to teach Harvey something?
