The Alchemy of Transformation on the Sufi Path

Sheikha Maryam was born into a liberal Jewish family in Hollywood, CA. She was an actress at the age of five and was acting in a Theatre Company when she was twelve years old, when she was given a painted scroll of an ancient wanderer, upon which were inscribed the words: “Seek and The Truth Shall Make You Free.” This message galvanized her soul and determined the course of her life. In search of the liberating truth, she was led to live in India and Nepal, and in monasteries in Europe, and then guided to embrace Islam at the hands of an ancient Sufi Master a few minutes away from the tomb of the Prophet Abraham. She has described the deep journey of transformation in a book entitled: “Journey Through Ten Thousand Veils, the Alchemy of Transformation on the Sufi Path.” This book is a significant and revealing spiritual and social commentary dispelling many myths and stereotypes, such as the proposition, often fostered by the media, that women are inevitably oppressed in Islam. On the contrary, it is by entering into the heart of Islam that the author was liberated, elevated, empowered, and guided to realize the true purpose of her existence.
