Description



"There is a danger in the New Age movement of 'open-mindedness' and 'universality' becoming a new dogma which only serves to separate 'us' who pay lip service to these ideals from 'them' who do not. Far better to be a flexible, open-minded traditionalist than a rigidly doctrinaire liberal."
- Ya'qub ibn Yusuf, from the introduction
