Language of the Heart: A Sufi Interpretation of Form (Sura) and Meaning (Mana) in Contemporary Society
Blue Dome Press, Feb 27, 2013 - Body, Mind & Spirit - 224 pages
This book seeks to examine how Sufi thought might provide critical understanding of contemporary life and a pathway towards the recovery of a more meaningful existence. Rumi’s mystical teachings are of great value at a time of rampant materialism and indiscriminate consumerism, and have the potential to illuminate the precarious state of the world, as well as revitalize contemporary social critique, eco-philosophy and bio-semiotics in what is increasingly being regarded as a post-secular age.
