Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee, Ph.D. is a Sufi teacher. Since 2000 the focus of his writing and teaching has been on spiritual responsibility in our present time of transition, and an awakening global consciousness of oneness. More recently he has written about the importance of the role of the feminine in our present time, the anima mundi (world soul), and also has written and lectured extensively about spiritual ecology. Author of several books, his initial work from 1990 to 2000, including his first eleven books, was to make the Sufi path more accessible to the Western seeker. The second series of books, starting from the year 2000 with The Signs of God, are focused on spiritual teachings about oneness and how to bring them into contemporary life, with the final book in this series being Alchemy of Light.

Born in London in 1953, he has followed the Naqshbandi Sufi path since he was nineteen. In 1991 he became the successor of Irina Tweedie, who brought this particular Indian branch of Sufism to the West and is the author of Daughter of Fire: A Diary of a Spiritual Training with a Sufi Master. He then moved to Northern California and founded The Golden Sufi Center (www.goldensufi.org).  He has specialized in the area of dreamwork, integrating the ancient Sufi approach to dreams with the insights of Jungian Psychology.
