Whoever is initiated by us and follows us and loves us, whether he is near or far, wherever he is, even if he is in the East and we are in the West, we nourish from the stream of love and give him light in his daily life.

In this quote from one of the great Naqshbandi Sufi masters we have a description of one of the natural laws of the universe: how one action affects another, at varying distances. How does this apply to spiritual learning?

Dr. Stewart Bitkoff holds a doctorate in education and is an avid student of Sufi Mysticism and the Perennial Philosophy. He is the author of The Ferryman’s Dream, A Commuter's Guide to Enlightenment, and Sufism for the Western Seeker, which was nominated as Book of the Year by 'ForeWord Magazine' in the Adult Non Fiction Religious category.

Dr. Bitkoff is a frequent contributor to “Sufism: An Inquiry” and “Sacred Journey Magazine” and writes for multiple online entities, including the Philadelphia Spirituality Examiner, Wisdom Magazine, New Age Journal, and more.

In this show we  explore spirituality as the ultimate kind of “distance learning.”
