Love is Everything

A Year With Hadewijch of Antwerp

 

I offer this book to all seekers on all paths as a source of indomitable joy, noble hope, and inspiration for selfless service at a time when the future of humanity demands that we listen to and follow the sacred leadership of the great heroes of Divine Love, like Hadewijch of Antwerp and together, in Love, as Love, for Love, birth a new humanity and a new world. ~ Andrew Harvey

 

This compilation of the mystical writings of Hadewijch of Antwerp is best described, in Andrew Harvey’s words, as a “heroic song” of love. The book presents an honest picture of love from every angle, stripped of sentimentality, not disguising the high price love demands if it is to be taken or given seriously. In a world torn by division, indifference and chaos, to read Love is Everything is to be awakened to the full potential and dignity of being human, and to be changed.

Hadewijch of Antwerp was one of Christianity’s greatest Christian mystics, a Beguine who lived in the 13th century.

Andrew Harvey brings Hadewijch of Antwerp to life for all of us. In a world that has surely lost its way, her profound insights offer us a way back to the heart of God. As I read these passages, I felt myself coming back into alignment, reminded (and rehearted) of all that truly matters. –Caroline Myss 

Hadewijch of Antwerp is a radiant treasure, a life-giving wellspring, a fierce and tender teacher of transformation. In this magnificent collection, Andrew Harvey has brilliantly translated and lovingly offered the distilled elixir of this mystical master. Prepare to be astonished. –Jeff Brown

This exquisite immersion by Andrew Harvey in the holy truth of love, invites our remembering that love is indeed and literally everything. –Mirabai Starr
