Sufism for Western Seekers: Path of the Spiritual Traveler in Everyday Life
Author: Dr. Stewart Bitkoff
Publisher: Abandoned Ladder/CreateSpace
Category: Universal Spirituality: Sufism Level: Intermediate
For many western spiritual seekers, Sufism is often misunderstood and viewed as an Islamic mystical tradition presented through various Sufi orders. Yet this ancient path of spiritual knowing is much broader and older, available through all religions and independent of Islam and these orders.
This is a first hand account of spiritual knowing in two modern Sufi mystical schools. This message is intended for western spiritual travelers and was designed to appeal to everyone, regardless of their religious background.
"In this book, Dr. Bitkoff uses stories and examples from modern America to show how the ancient wisdom of Sufism can be used to enrich contemporary life.”
- Sheikha Halima Haymaker, Santa Rosa, CA.
“In 41 years of study, this book is one of only 2 books that I have come across by a western author that I would highly recommend to the western student of Sufism.”
- Andrew Mezurecky, PhD, Beaumont, CA.
“The author presents spirituality as something "intended to become the center of a life; a place from which other things come forward." Sufism is introduced as an "Organic Spirituality, " innate to humanity - part and parcel of life itself, but overshadowed by various levels of conditioning.”
- S.S., Staten Island, NY.
“This book has many gems in it. The dialogue between seeker and teacher offers great wisdom for one to contemplate and apply to every day living.”
- Janet Lawson, Grammy-Nominated Jazz Singer, NY, NY.
Author's Notes: Book has been nominated for a national book award. Finalist-Foreword Book Awards (category-Religion) 2011. Winners announced June 2012.
This is a great book helping to explain Sufism and the underlying reality in all religions. This has been called the primordial tradition or the perennial philosophy. Long has there been rumors of a hidden treasure or mystery tradition- this is it! Presented in an updated form for the western spiritual traveler.
