An important book, that aims to show the spiritual depth of Islamic culture and commemorate some of our greatest sages and saints.
Reunion with Sidi Shems Friedlander during a pre opening visit to his upcoming artwork and photo exhibit ‘Winter Harevst.’ He has been an inspiration to generations of students at AUC as well as readers of his classic books and viewers of his documentaries. A personal inspiration with his work on Mawlana Rumi in service to and abiding love for The One. His nine books include classics such as When You Hear Hoofbeats, Think of a Zebra Talks on SufismandRumi and the Whirling Dervishes. Deeply appreciative to his contribution of the foreword of Canvas of the Soul and his ma’rifah, wisdom and continued inspiration on several levels.
