Caravan: Biographies from the Sufism Symposia, 1994-2014
By Dr. Nahid Angha

Caravan CoverOne of the IAS’ contributions to the historical movement are the Sufism Symposia, where for one weekend almost every year since 1994 Sufis and spiritual leaders from around the world gathered to create a global spiritual family dedicated to peace. The IAS has compiled the biographies of those, who for more than twenty years, have been fellow travelers on this magnificent journey.

In 2011, the IAS invited Symposia participants and presenters to submit their biographies for this book. Submissions arrived in biographical, autobiographical, and resume formats, and editors made minor formatting revisions to prepare this volume. Every effort was made to contact all the presenters of the Sufism Symposia since 1994 for their biographical contributions.

The wonderful life stories that arrived in time for publication are presented.

This book is the first volume in a series of compilations and includes a brief history of IAS and its many departments and programs.

Available for purchase from Amazon or directly from IAS (download order form here).

Detailed descriptions of each ‘station’ make this work an esoteric masterpiece, now almost one thousand years old, that invites the reader on a spiritual journey of self-discovery.
