Synopsis:

Part oracle, part meditation book, and part Aladdin’s cave of Middle Eastern myth and sacred story, Desert Wisdom offers a fresh way to hear the ancient visionary voices of the Middle East that generated three (or more) of the world’s great religions.

Renowned Sufi scholar and teacher Neil Douglas-Klotz, author of The Sufi Book of Life and Prayers of the Cosmos, has revisioned his acclaimed 1995 classic for the 21st century. Praised by scientists, poets and mystics alike for its ecological approach to “hearing” the native wisdom of the Middle East on its own terms, Desert Wisdom takes us on a journey from ancient Egypt throughout the Middle East to Sufi poets like Rumi and Hafiz. In between, we spend time hearing Genesis the way a storyteller might have told it and sit at the feet of the Aramaic-speaking prophet, Yeshua of Nazareth. Through it all, Desert Wisdom presents us with ancient wisdom about life’s biggest questions like:

Why am I here? Who am I? And how do I love?

"Middle Eastern enchantment for the soul. Bravo!"
--Fred Alan Wolf, Ph.D., featured in the film "What the Bleep Do We Know?"

"Read this book aloud. Let the sounds wrap around your heart. These are translations so unhampered by reduction, stiffness and religiosity that the modern window opens quiet on the ancient garden."
--Carolyn McVickar Edwards, Author of The Storyteller's Goddess

"A prophetic and mystical accomplishment of the first order!"
--Dr. Matthew Fox, author of Original Blessing and The Reinvention of Work

"Open the book anywhere, and you will discover delightful inner openings and insights."
--Shaykh Fadhlalla Haeri, author of Sufi Links and Spectrum of Reality
Already have the first (1995) edition?

What's New in Desert Wisdom 2.0:

*Seven new translations from the Aramaic words of Jesus.

*Ten new translations from the Hebrew (Genesis, Zohar and Dead Sea Scrolls).

*Three new translations from the Qur'an.

*Book reorganized for better use as an oracle in a similar format to The Sufi Book of Life.

*Meditations rewritten and keyed to "Life's Big Questions."

*All notes and commentary revised and updated.

*New "Quick Start Guide" and Preface.

*Complete indexes to meditations and textual strands, plus a new general index

*Plus: all translations from the first edition revised and updated, with improved transliteration of original texts.

From the Back Cover: Long before Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, the Middle Eastern desert bloomed with wise indigenous traditions. Ancient Aramaic, Hebrew, Egyptian, Sumerian, and other texts suggest rich and influential religions supporting enormous diverse communities. Today, Native Middle Eastern spirituality continues to emit a perfume that transcends the political and religious conflicts of the modern world, offering a common voice full of life, meaning, and hope. Here, for the first time, these voices are translated and rendered into a musical and poetic language that lifts the spirit, eases the mind, and calms the body. Gathering a marvelous bouquet of ancient Middle Eastern wisdomstretching from goddess cultures to Sufi mysticism - Neil Douglas-Klotz has harvested the sacred literature of Egyptian, Judaic, Christian, Gnostic, and Islamic religious traditions.
