“I don’t know what encourages me to do it, but I move to the circle and sit on my knees between Sheikh Muzaffer and his khalifa, Safer Baba. Not invited, I nevertheless nudge them aside and sit down. The zikr begins and I repeat the Names of Allah and do the swaying movements, which is natural for me. It becomes part of me. I feel as though my soul has returned home.”

Winter Harvest is the long-awaited sequel to When You Hear Hoofbeats Think of aZebra, now considered a Sufi classic. Friedlander has spent over 40 years in a Sufi order and is now sharing his stories and travels in the winter of his life.

“Winter Harvest is a profoundly creative and spiritual pilgrimage with beautiful articulated memories of the past that evolve with inevitable and poetic precisions into a unifying embrace of form and emptiness. I read Winter Harvest straight through and then again, embraced by its compassionate and profound view of impermanence that was always accompanied by a joyful celebration of being in the present.”

– Rudolph Wirlitzer, Author

“It elevates one;s spirit and makes you feel that you are sitting with Sufi sheikhs, gurus, Tibetan masters and other teachers who were part of the spiritual energy that moved from the East to the West.”

-Abdallah Schleifer, Journalist and Middle East expert
