In clear and direct ways, this book offers guidance, instruction and inspiration for those who wish to learn meditation and for practitioners of meditation who are ready to deepen their practice. hooh press. http://universalmeditations.com/
Gayan; Notes From the Unstruck Music Hazrat Inayat Khan The Sufi engages fully in life, using the matters of the everyday world to fuel the alchemy of spiritual transformation. The ordinary thus becomes infused with the felt presence and guidance of All-Pervading Spirit, and the purpose of the soul in earthly embodiment is illumined. This pocket size volume of aphorisms is a glimpse into that alchemy. Sometimes exalted, sometimes didactic, sometimes dryly humorous, sometimes intensely personal and poignant, The Gayan is a kaleidoscopic look into the heart of Sufi master Pir-o-Murshid Inayat Khan. Omega Publications Inc.

Kundun, a Tibetan Buddhist Monk, is traveling to meet a Druze Sheik in the hills of the Galilee in order to discuss their common interest in reincarnation. Liora, a young Jewish woman on a dedicated spiritual quest, finds herself drawn into the ancient courtyard of a monastery in East Jerusalem where she spends her day awash with memories…..of this life, and surprisingly, her past lives.

In the process we discover not only where their paths may lead, but the heartwarming wisdom of our own inner journey!
