This classic work by Reshad Feild, one of today's best-known Sufi teachers in the West, tells the compelling story of his journey into an ancient and powerful spiritual path. Starting as a London antique dealer, Feild comes into contact with the enigmatic Hamid, a Sufi teacher who leads him into a world of mystery, knowledge, and limitless love. On his journey, which takes him to the mystical sites of Turkey, Feild is forced to confront his own inner weaknesses and falsehoods. Hamid and the events of his search take him again and again into confrontation with the limits of his own being, enabling him to shed the false conditioning that lies between himself and his true nature. This hard-to-put-down adventure is a travelogue in more ways than one. It tells of Feild's exhilarating explorations into mystical Turkey, a land of whirling dervishes and the tombs of great saints, but also a world that opens into the divine love that lies at the heart of all. This twenty-fifth anniversary edition features a new foreword by Coleman Barks, the foremost modern interpreter of the Sufi poet Rumi, and a new preface by the author.

'A rare journal of one man's struggle towards true freedom, this compelling story carries the stamp of undeniable authenticity.' -- Watkins Review, Spring 2003 "A human being is forgetfulness. Reshad is faithful to remembering, brilliant in remembering." -- Robert Bly, poet and author of Iron John and The Sibling Society "The lightness and clarity of the narrative have preserved intact and alive the early days of a story of spiritual discovery that has not yet reached its end, neither in the author nor, for that matter, in our culture." -- Rafi Zabor, author of the PEN-Faulkner award-winning The Bear Comes Home "Order and perfection seem to be the keynotes of Mr Feild's message. His eloquent and colorful orchestration show his creative powers to be of a very high level." -- The Times Literary SupplementAbout the Author:
