Description

What is enlightenment, the ultimate goal of all sacred traditions? How does it affect the lives of those who experience it? Is there a common ground to how various traditions approach it? What does it mean for us today? This book is an unusually clear and readable exploration of these questions.

Its experiential bent and spirit of universality have brought it wide recognition as a classic. Lex Hixon warmly guides the reader through an intriguing array of traditional teachings to the essential truth of all the world's great religions, which is simply to come home. Invoking the essence and texture of different sacred paths, he presents enlightenment as the full flowering of human nature, accessible to everyone.

REVIEWS

Lex Hixon guides our spiritual journey with the deliciously subtle light of a honed intellect and an open heart.
-Ram Dass

Outstanding as an introduction the world's great mystical traditions, I have used Coming Home in my philosophy of religion course for over fifteen years. The book's purpose is to point to similar patterns of thought and experience across those traditions, but it never does so by abstracting them out. Instead it thoroughly embeds them in the lives and voices of individual mystics. It is this that makes its accessible as well as personally and intellectually inspiring to students.
-Nancy Baker
