Details: Product Description In a memorable retreat integrating deep meditation practices with discourses on the nature and interrelationship of spirituality, the universe, and everyday life in the world, Pir Vilayat Inayat Khan urges us to consider a retreat as a rehearsal for life. “Discover yourself by becoming, by doing. The retreat situation marks a halt in which we step out of our normal mode of existence in order to reflect upon our lives and gain more clarity and, ultimately, become more aware of what our real objective is in life. A retreat is an opportunity for a lot of reflection, a time to explore those skills which will open up faculties that we are not using and insights of which we are not aware.” Review "We are fortunate to have a Sufi master like Pir Vilayat in the West. By offering this retreat book he gifts us a splendid treasury of practices, perspectives, and wisdom of the heart." Jack Kornfield co-founder of Insight Meditation Center and Spirit Rock Meditation Center, author of Bringing Home the Dharma "This book is a manual for self-transformation. Pir Vilayat has applied Sufi wisdom to the perplexities and stresses of modern life, informing his readers how to think clearly and live peacefully, while appreciating beauty and developing spiritually." Stanley Krippner, PhD professor of Psychology, Saybrook College, author of The Mythic Path and Healing States "That Which Transpires Behind That Which Appears is as close to experiential learning as words in print could ever be. . . . Pir Vilayat Inayat Khan reflects a source and a mirror of peace." Abdul Aziz Said professor of International Relations American University founder, International Peace and Conflict Resolution Division and Center for Global Peace "A long-awaited compendium of wisdom from the great Sufi master Pir Vilayat Khan. His translation of the profound experience of Sufism into practical guidelines that sincere students can follow is a great contribution to the spiritual world." Sri Swami Satchidananda founder of Integral Yoga author of The Living Gita "Pir Vilayat uses words with healing magic to stimulate our growth and to entrain us in our growth to God. Fly home on his maps." Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalom professor, Naropa University and Temple University, founder of B'nai Or and Alliance for Jewish Renewal author of Jewish with Feeling and A Heart Afire "At long last, Pir Vilayat Inayat Khan's message is available in book form. Now we can ponder in written form what we have long valued in his spoken word: clear and strong images, detailed and eminently practical instructions. Behind that which appears on these pages transpires a fiery teacher, an agile mind, a voice that arouses the heart like music. May this book bring joy and new insights to countless readers." Brother David Steindl-Rast Benedictine monk, author of Gratefulness, the Heart of Prayer "In a clear and straightforward manner Pir Vilayat describes the transformation of consciousness that is at the core of the spiritual journey. Pir Vilayat both unveils the mysteries of the path and provides the seeker with the tools, the exercises and practices to make the journey that is the heart's greatest secret." Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee founder of the Golden Sufi Center, author of For Love of the Real About the Author Pir Vilayat Inayat Khan (1916–2004) was the son and spiritual successor of Hazrat Inayat Khan. During his fifty years as head of the Sufi Order International, Pir Vilayat became an internationally recognized spiritual teacher and master of meditation.
