The traditional prejudiced Western view of the Middle East is dominated by Islamic fundamentalism and the oil industry. There is an atmosphere of fear and mystery that surrounds the whole region. This book aims to dispel that fear and reveal the richness of its culture and spirituality. The author explores ancient goddess cultures, Aramaic words of Jesus, Egyptian, Ancient Judaic, Gnosticism and Sufism, offering a powerful resource for healing and change in the West.
