Product description


"For anyone attracted to the elusive realm of creative imagination, this book draws out and makes explicit what lives so strongly as a lure within the heart, the desire to find again our first home, the imaginal worlds and their inhabitants, the angels of creativity. As acknowledged master interpreter of the great work of Henry Corbin, Tom Cheetham follows Corbin's path of seeing all the world as living symbol of the divine worlds. More, he shows how to go through the portal of the world as symbol to enter the imaginal realms in their intimate autonomy, and develop impeccable trust in their spontaneous appearance as personal images. Here, in this writing, we can learn interior listening, discovering the inherent poeticizing action of the word. This beautiful volume goes beyond, way beyond, any of our usual self-serving inclinations and leads us into being servants of the angel of the Earth."
--Robert Sardello, author of Silence: The Mystery of Wholeness

Praise for Tom Cheetham's work on Henry Corbin:

"Cheetham's passion ... carries the reader into an ever-deepening appreciation of the huge importance of Henry Corbin for the reevaluation of vision and imagination."
--James Hillman, author of The Soul's Code

"A very important addition to the ongoing discussion of where we are in human history."
--Huston Smith, author of The World's Religions

"A shaking of the foundations of human perspective."
--David L. Miller, Watson-Ledden Professor of Religion, Emeritus, Syracuse University

"Required reading for all believers."
--Ginette Paris, core faculty member at the Pacifica Graduate Institute and author of Wisdom of the Psyche

"Marvelously accessible and true statements touching the essence of Corbin's work." --Todd Lawson, University of Toronto, author of Reason and Inspiration in Islam
