Part meditation book, part oracle, and part collection of Sufi lore, poetry, and stories, The Sufi Book of Life offers a fresh interpretation of the fundamental spiritual practice found in all ancient and modern Sufi schools—the meditations on the 99 Qualities of Unity. Unlike most books on Sufism, which are primarily collections of translated Sufi texts, this accessible guide is a handbook that explains how to apply Sufi principles to modern life. With inspirational commentary that connects each quality with contemporary concerns such as love, work, and success, as well as timeless wisdom from Sufi masters, both ancient and modern, such as Rumi, Hafiz, Shabistari, Rabia, Inayat Khan, Indries Shah, Irina Tweedie, Bawa Muhaiyadden, and more, The Sufi Book of Life is a dervish guide to life and love for the twenty-first century.

The Sufi Book of Life has incredible wisdom formatted into an easy to use book of daily meditations about all aspects of life. Each day features a word to focus on, a description of how that word effects our lives, a quote and a suggested meditation. As a student of Buddhist philosophy I have found that this book of Sufi insight has given me new perspectives and helped enrich existing ones.
Open this book randomly to any page and discover a pathway of the heart that will lead to a deeper relationship with the Beloved, Sacred Unity.

Find unexpected life possibilities as you interpret your experiences through a vision of the world overflowing with compassion and acceptance. Working with the pathways in The Sufi Book of Life will expand your heart-felt appreciation of yourself and your fellows, the natural world, and the source of Unity, which pervades the entire Universe.
