A lover of God, say the Sufi, is one who longs to be dissolved in the Beloved, in love's limitless ocean. For more than 10 centuries, the Sufi have perfected love's inner alchemy - the way the heart opens to the ecstasy of divine union.
In The Sufi Path of Love, teacher and author Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee shares the secrets of this transformation, a "turning of the heart" that awakens the soul's innermost love affair. Weaving together dreamwork; the teachings of his own Naqshbandi order; the archetypal psychology of C. G. Jung; and more than 1,100 years of Sufi wisdom, poetry, and teaching stories, Vaughan-Lee takes us into the wonder of this spiraling inward journey. You will discover what is hidden within the deepest chamber of the heart; how this path uses the joys and sorrows of personal relationship as the prima materia for spiritual growth; how the fire of longing purifies us; and, finally, how the lover surrenders blissfully into the arms of the Beloved.
"To be a lover of God is not an abstraction", teach the Sufi. "It is a reality that permeates every cell of your body." In The Sufi Path of Love, you are invited to share in this ancient wisdom of love and longing and to let your own heart's desire become a burning flame.

I listen to this book over and over and over again. The words clench at my heart as it reaches such a deep part of my soul and helps to provide me with a deeper understanding of the things that I myself have been experiencing. Thank you Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee! as I found myself on my knees in prayer one afternoon weeping and crying not understanding where it was coming from all I could say was I miss you God I miss you God so much I miss you. I did not know what else to tell him only that I missed him. there was such a deep profound aching in my heart an aching deep in my soul I could feel myself as if I was begging for his love I didn't understand what all that was happening. I'm not even sure how I found this book but as I was scrolling through my audio there it was something about it intrigued me so when I purchased it and started listening, again came the tears sliding down my face with such deep appreciation for guiding me to this book to help me understand deeply what it was that I was experiencing and help me to better understand ... I am a Sufi
