Winter Harvest: Bob Dylan to Jalaluddin Rumi
Memories and Illuminations
“I don’t know what encourages me to do it, but I move to the circle and sit on my knees between Sheikh Muzaffer and his khalifa, Safer Baba. Not invited, I nevertheless nudge them aside and sit down. The zikr begins and I repeat the Names of Allah and do the swaying movements, which is natural for me. It becomes a part of me. I feel as though my soul has returned home.”
Winter Harvest is the long-awaited sequel to When You Hear Hoofbeats Think of a Zebra, now considered a Sufi classic. Friedlander has spent over 40 years in a Sufi order and is now sharing his stories and travels in the winter of his life.
