For centuries a well-guarded secret, nestled amongst the Yemeni deserts and valleys of southern Arabia lies Tarim—a small town offering little to those pursuing worldly gains. Now a popular destination for seekers of knowledge and spirituality worldwide, it is home to an environment largely unparalleled in its preservation of the inward and outward manifestations of the Islamic spiritual tradition.
This book details the journey of a seeker to knowledge, truth, and the people of God. It takes the reader through the decision-making process, the outward journey, and the arrival, and, finally, through the experience of the environment, the learning program, and the teachers themselves.
The reader is presented with a unique insight into a sacred place, sought after by so many all over the world, but only granted to a small number who are fortunate enough to undertake the journey.
