For the general audience and spiritual seekers who are interested in the history Sufism in America, especially its history in the latter years of the 20th century and the first decade and a half of the 21st century, you will find in Caravan a wealth of information about many different Sufi Schools and teachers who have come from many parts of the world including the Middle East, North and West Africa, Canada and many parts of the US. The biographies give insight into peoples longing to be united with the Divine, and how that longing takes one on a journey of self-discovery to find a teacher who can guide and point one in the right direction.
Caravan also highlights the many civic and humanitarian programs and activities of the International Association of Sufism, founded by Seyedeh Dr. Nahid Angah and Shah Nazar Seyyed Ali Kianfar who have been instrumental in calling together Sufi practitioners from around the world to share the teachings of their schools. Through their hard work and service the International Association of Sufism has become the center of Sufism not only in the west but serves as an important hub for the spread of Sufism throughout the world and Caravan invites the reader to have a taste of that experience.
