In 1244 AD, Jallaludin Rumi met a wandering seeker named Shams-i-Tabriz. The two men immediately went into private retreat together, emerging 90 days later totally transformed. Drawing on Rumis poetry and prose, Will Johnson reveals what brought this about. To put it simply, they sat and gazed into each others eyes. Because the eyes are portals to the soul, their sustained gazing opened the doors to a profound state of divine union. With Johnsons help, modern seekers may learn this radical spiritual practice themselves. 208 pp.
