Prayer of the Heart in Christian and Sufi Mysticism

by Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

Prayer of the Heart in Christian & Sufi Mysticism guides the reader through the stages of mystical prayer. Mystical prayer is a way to create a living relationship with the Divine within the heart. Drawing on Christian and Sufi sources such as St. Teresa of Avila, Attar, St. John of the Cross, and Rumi, as well as from his own experience, Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee describes how prayer is first born of need, but then takes one deep within the heart, into the stages of Union and Ecstasy. Through mystical prayer, one is drawn beyond any words into the interior silence of real communion with God. Here, in the silence within the heart, a meeting and merging takes place that carries us beyond our self into the mystery of divine presence, into the secret nature of love's oneness. Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee Ph.D. is a Sufi teacher and author of a number of books, including The Return of the Feminine and World Soul. In recent years the focus of his writing and teaching has been on spiritual responsibility in our present time of transition, and the emerging global consciousness of oneness, and the subject of Spiritual Ecology. He is the founder of the Golden Sufi Center. His most recent book is Prayer of the Heart in Christian and Sufi Mysticism.

“... with the understated simplicity of a true spiritual master, Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee seamlessly weaves these complementary traditions into a single tapestry of singular power and beauty... this book offers yet another profound contribution to the collective evolution of our hearts.”
—Rev. Cynthia Bourgeault

“... an excellent book ... As we recover more and more of the ancient contemplative traditions, we are finding immense similarities in goal, practice, and effects. At the mystical level, we are seemingly talking about the same experience, despite our different vocabularies and styles! Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee makes this sacred journey both clear and inviting.”
—Fr. Richard Rohr, Franciscan Priest, author, 
and founder Center for Action and Contemplation

"The seamless manner in which Vaughan-Lee moves back and forth between the Christian and Sufi mystics bears witness to the divine love that wholly transcends, even as it wholly permeates the mystical dimensions of the world's great religions and, for that matter, all of existence... This book is a little gem that will be savored and treasured by all who are being interiorly drawn along the path of love."
