Love is a Traveller and We Are its Path
Medina Tenour Whiteman
In search of an indigenous European voice for Sufi thought, Medina Tenour Whiteman presents this collection of poetry that interweaves narratives of motherhood, travel, prayer, and the search for the Divine in myriad human experiences. Here the reader will find comical anecdotes from the spiritual path as well as stories of love and domestic zookeeping, travel and home, alienation and acceptance. Above all, this is a lyrical expression of seeking Truth in one's native tongue.
“With Medina Whiteman’s lively, metamorphosing voice, we have here finely detailed poetic stances on whatever attracts her and her pen, and her heart is here, and its centripetal ripples edge out to our own world and wash over it as if with our own sensibilities — and it is a welcoming thing, a sweet and healing thing to know these enlightened trails.” - Daniel ‘Abdal-Hayy Moore
