About this title


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.

From the Publisher:

The beautifully translated and excerpted writings of Middle Eastern mystics, prophets, poets, and artists present a coherent bio-regional spirituality little known in the West and offer a rich source of renewal and healing.
