Spiritual life is a response to a call. Our journey home, reveals the Sufi, is simple—to be burned alive in our longing for God until nothing else remains. For the deepest fire of the heart's passion and the fire of the Divine are one and the same.

This is the essence of Sufism, a mystical path of love that reaches out to true seekers of every spiritual tradition. But how do we kindle this fire of divine longing within? In Love Is a Fire and I Am Wood, you are invited to sit at the side of Sufi teacher and author Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee in a series of actual Sufi meetings, recorded live as they happened.

Here, among these "lovers of God," you will taste the Sufi experience for yourself through a “spiraling series of talks,” each one exploring a different facet of the tradition, drawing you deeper into the heart of the Beloved. You will learn how Sufi prayer pulls you like a magnet ever closer to God; what it means to drown in the ocean of divine love; how spiritual dreamwork guides you on this journey to the "heart of hearts"; the wisdom and passionate teachings of many Sufi masters, including Bayezid Bistami, al-Hallaj, Rabi'a, Rumi, and Ibn 'Arabi; and how to balance the intensity of the mystical path with the demands of everyday life.

Love Is a Fire and I Am Wood opens the door to the Sufi tradition, over 1,000 years old and intoxicatingly alive today.The Sufis believe that your deepest heartache radiates outward like a beacon of light to attract the teacher—and the teachings—that you need. If this eternal pain of love is the lantern that flickers within you, then let it be answered by the living fire of this mystical tradition.
