The Ecstatic Journey
In The Ecstatic Journey (review or buy), Ms. Burnham reveals her own personal journey into mystical awareness -- the "rowing toward God," as she describes it. Along with her own story, Ms. Burnham gives stories of mystical encounters described by saints and seekers of many faiths. As Ms. Burnham writes in her introduction, "Twenty years ago, I felt alone, blindly groping on the path. Yet looking back I see that guides, both human and spiritual, remained always at my side." In this lovely book, she offers details about this often difficult path.
A Book of Angels
A Book of Angels (review or buy) not only tells the true stories of present-day encounters with angels, but also traces the understanding and study of angels throughout history and in different cultures. Ms. Burnham writes about the angels of the Old Testament, Buddhist bodhisattvas, cherubim, guardian angels, and more. A Book of Angels is considered one of the finest explorations of angels today.
