Description from the publisher:
This book of essays, poems, and interviews by Islamic and Sufi poets, scholars, and storytellers is a much-needed compendium of works from a complex tradition that holds timeless messages for contemporary readers. Contributors range from Rumi to Seyyed Hossei Nasr to Emma Clark — together they create a mosaic of the Muslim view of the world and the cosmos, as well as of Sufi rhythms and rituals. Contributions like “ Out of the Hidden Root” and “ Slumber Seizes Him Not” promote a deeper understanding of one of the world’ s great, and most misunderstood, spiritual traditions.
