Sufism

The Sufi is he whose thought keeps pace with his foot. He is entirely present; his soul is where his body is and his body is where his soul is. - Sufi Wisdom

A tradition that stretches from the woman Sufi mystic Rabia in the eighth century to the Naqshbandi Order founded in the fourteenth century, Sufism expresses the mystical marriage of the soul with God as the love affair between the lover and the Beloved. In books, discourses, dance, and the world’s most exquisite lyrical verse, the Sufis describe the human yearning for God, transferring human passion and self-sacrifice for the beloved into a true relationship to God. The dialogue between the human and the divine has rarely been so poetically represented.
