“In The Bond with the Beloved, the heart of the devotional practises of the Sufi mystical writing blend together making very deep connections with Western Tradition.”
“... wisdom and guidance (are) compressed into the pages of this delightful book.”
—George Feuerstein, Quest
This book explores the relationship between the lover and the Beloved, that profound inner bond of love which is central to every mystical path. Drawing on sources both Christian and Sufi, author Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee details the stages of this relationship as it unfolds in the heart of the seeker, from effort to grace. He describes how the heart is dynamically activated by this powerful inner love, which gradually awakens the lover to a new level of consciousness, an awareness of the oneness of life.
