Overview

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.

In this 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.

Author Biography: Reshad Feild's other works include The Invisible Way, Steps to Freedom, and Here to Heal.

About the Author

Die über ein Dutzend Bücher von Reshad Feild, in viele Sprachen übersetzt und in hohen Auflagen verkauft, zählen zu den Eckpfeilern zeitgenössischen spirituellen Gedankenguts. Ausgedehnte Reisen führten den Engländer um die ganze Welt; er war Marineoffizier, Börsenmakler, Werbefachmann, Popstar und Antiquitätenhändler. Im Verlaufe eines lebenslangen Abenteuers, das er beschreibt als „beständige Suche nach immer feineren Dimensionen der Wahrheit und der inneren Bedeutung des Lebens," kam Reshad Feild in Berührung mit den Lehren von G.I. Gurdjieff und P.D. Ouspensky und begegnete dem tibetanischen Buddhismus und seinen Lamas, amerikanischen Sioux-Indianern sowie Schamanen und Meistern des Sufi-Pfades. Schließlich, packend geschildert in seinem ersten Werk. Ich ging den Weg des Derwisch, fand Reshad Feild seinen wahren spirituellen Lehrer, der selbst einer langen Sufi-Tradition entstammte. Insgesamt sechzehn Jahre verbrachte Reshad Feild in den USA, bevor er 1986 in die Schweiz übersiedelte, wo er heute lebt.

Reshad Feilds Bücher und Vorträge sind eine Einladung, einige der Fragen zu teilen, die im Herzen aller wahrhaft Suchenden auftauchen. Sie geben uns einen Geschmack von der wirklichen, in unserem Alltag erlebbaren Freiheit und lassen uns entdecken, dass es eine essentielle Wahrheit ist, welche die Grundlage unserer Existenz auf der Erde bildet, und dass wahres spirituelles Leben hier ist, und nicht in der Illusion eines imaginären Traumlandes.

What People are Saying About This

E.J. Gold

A Reshad book is not to be missed. (E.J. Gold, author of The American Book of the Dead)

Edith Wallace

Reshad Feild is magic. He tells his own story of growth and transformation into a teacher of 'the essence of Sufism.' He has the creative talent of a storyteller to present a well-told tale. At the same time he can take you to your own road and constellate transformation. This book is timely right now and truly important. As Reshad says in The Last Barrier, ‘You are telling me,' I said finally ‘that the future of the world, of this planet, depends on us and the real changes that we make now.' (Edith Wallace, Ph.D., author of A Queen's Quest: Pilgrimage for Individuation & How it All Began; How it Continues; No End!)

Coleman Barks

Reshad Feild is one of those rare combinations — artist and soul teacher. (Coleman Barks, poet and author of The Essential Rumi)

Robert Bly

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)
