The Society is committed to the highest possible standards in scholarship and spirituality – which was also the goal of the Meister. It welcomes all, no matter of what faith or none, to whom Meister Eckhart is of interest
It publishes a Review and a series of newsletters. There is a three day annual Conference with speakers drawn from amongst the foremost scholars in Eckhart studies as well as those from related disciplines and other religions
The Society’s aims can be summarised as:
To promote both understanding and appreciation of Eckhart’s Writings
To facilitate Scholarly research into Eckhart’s life and works
To promote the study of Eckhart’s teaching as a contribution to interreligious dialogue.

When asked about the way forward in life, Meister Eckhart said that a person who has a ‘breakthrough’ should return to work in the stable. This is very significant and important advice. It suggests the immediacy of what is often referred to as the divine in everyday life.
