Mystic's Workshop: Dorothee Soelle
Dorothee Soelle, 1929-2003, was a German mystic influenced by the spirituality of Meister Eckhart. Drawn to the medieval mystical suggestion that our goal was union with God, Soelle believed that we begin with experience and not with doctrines handed down, if we are to access the transcendent and become transformed ourselves. God is within. Nothing is secular. God's love is powerless love. If faith means that there is an extra place in your head where God sits, then you will never be transformed.
