Love is Stronger Than Death: The Mystical Union of Two Souls by Cynthia Bourgeault (1997, updated edition 2014)
A powerfully moving love story of two aging individuals, Love Is Stronger Than Death: The Mystical Union Of Two Souls is drawn from the life and experiences of writer and Episcopal priest Cynthia Bourgeault and Trappist monk and hermit Brother Raphael (Rafe) Robin. Deeply enriched by Bourgeault’s knowledge of the teachings of G.I. Gurdjieff and of Christian mysticism, their vibrant, provocative, beautifully written story adds a profound new dimension to our understanding of human love and the possibility of survival beyond the grave.
The ability of human and spiritual love to transcend death and open the way to joyous bliss is superbly presented in this highly recommended and heartwarming tale of building an emotional, personal, and loving relationship for the future that transcends all earthly limitations.
“A lucid, brave, and significant contribution to the two deepest questions being asked by all seekers now: What really happens after death and how can human relationships help us to achieve an initiation into divine human love? Another dimension which this book opens up is that of the real place of eros in Christian mysticism and the act of living mystical experience.”~ Andrew Harvey, author of Son of Man
