About the Author

Richard Wright won international renown for his powerful and visceral depiction of the black experience. He stands today alongside such African-American luminaries as Zora Neale Hurston, James Baldwin, and Toni Morrison, and two of his novels, Native Son and Black Boy, are required reading in high schools and colleges across the nation. He died in 1960.


I am grateful to Dick for including us in his very personal journey. Such accounts are rare. We are all just human beings, and we are on a great journey of return. We read to know we are not alone.

Kabir Helminski, author of "Living Presence" and "The Knowing Heart," as well as "The Pocket Rumi,"' "Love's Ripening", and "The Rumi Daybook."

Whether you're a spiritual "beginner" (ultimately, aren't we all? A point made in this book) or have experience with spiritual retreats, you'll learn, grow, and be inspired by this brilliant book!

A wonderfully expressive story of the journey through the planes experienced on retreat with the late Pir Vilayat Khan, a modern-day dervish, related with self-effacing humor and playfulness. I recommend this book to those who are curious about the alchemical retreat process and those experienced pilgrims on the path exploring the ecstasy found in meditative states. I found this tale to be full of insight and reflection and I was intrigued by the author's sharings.
